“The best place to stay in Nairobi”

Kiloranhouse cottage is a beautiful,quite place away from the city center of Nairobi which is great. Secure during the night with the security guard and dogs. It feels like at home as the house is very cozy ,with wooden floors,lovely kitchen with some breakfast in the fridge and fruits on the table and an a amazing garden :)The rooms are very clean with nice bathroom.
Adriel welcome us very warmly and was very helpful when we wanted to buy tickets to go to Dar Es Saalam even using his own phone :) whenever we need it anything he was always there to help .Also Peter who pick us up from the airport and took us to many places like Carnivore Restaurant and food shopping etc.He was always waiting for us and we could relay on him at any time.We have spent 2 nights on the 6/7 January 2011 at the beginning of our holiday and then extra night which we have extended once we stayed in the cottage on the 19th January before leaving Kenya.We are going back to Nairobi in January 2012 and will stay at the cottage again for few nights before heading to climb Kilimanjaro.

Kiloran cottage is a beautiful place to get away from the madness of Nairobi. It is homely, cozy, peaceful and enchanting! The quiet and cool environment makes it possible to relax.
I felt like I was still in my home, because that's the feeling you get; the place is clean, your every need is taken into consideration even before you check in and one gets value for their money and much more. Would recommend it many times over.
Thank you Adriel, for making my stay in Nairobi comfortable and safe!

“Charming alternative to hotel in Nairobi”
Reviewed 28 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

My husband and I were searching for a home stay in Nairobi for a few days. We were attracted to Kiloran house and cottage because of their location and garden setting and elected to stay at the cottage since there were just two of us. Although larger than necessary for one couple, we appreciated the cottage's roominess, the comfortable queen size bed, and the private baths. The gardens are truly magnificent, and Adriel, our host, was happy to give us a tour of the historic main house and surrounding gardens. Adriel was also most accommodating in arranging transportation and in stocking the refrigerator with Tusker beer for our arrival. On one occasion he and his wife even rescued us as we stumbled along a nearby road in the wrong direction. We appreciated being so close to the Yaya Market where one can find just about anything. Our only disappointments were the low water pressure and lukewarm bath water (which may or not be under his control) and the minimalist breakfast. Bread, jam/butter, cereal, milk, coffe/tea, and fruit are supplied, but guests have to prepare their own breakfast in the cottage kitchen. We had some difficulty initially at the arrival and occasionally thereafter in rousing the guard at the gate, but we appreciated the excellent security. We felt perfectly safe in this little oasis in the heart of busy Nairobi. We highly recommend this place and would definitely stay there again.
