Covenant Guest House
Ranked #80 of 213 Speciality Lodging in Nairobi
Reviewed 6 June 2013

I stayed here for about a week during my visit to Nairobi and I really enjoyed my stay. The staff were really helpful with getting me settled in. The food was pretty good and I appreciated that they served breakfast in the morning. There is a mall not far from the guest house, so if you are plenty of other food options. I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Nairobi a second time.

Reviewed 25 December 2012

We do not recommend Covenant Guest House in Nairobi. We have travelled all continents on a budget note and have experienced a lot, and can accept most things if the willingness and the heart is there. Arriving late in the evening -firstly, the staff ripped us off on a taxi fare, the sheets were not clean, there was someones underwear left in the bathroom and the floors not swept. During our three days, the showers and toilets worked occationally. When light bulbs went out they made no effort to switch. The staff is lazy and distrusting (except James). We travel with our three children - and we were forced to pay cash every night for the next day - as if we would run off.... Staff would not give us a receipt until they had the money in their hands. We had agreed beforehand we could leave luggage while on safari but when here- staff tried to make us pay for a room while we were gone. It's overpriced and the website strongly overpresents this place. Why did we stay? Our frieds live nearby and to find a new place during the holidays was not easy. Oh! Forgot to tell - there's a night club next door stomping until four in the morning... Our strong advice- find somewhere else to stay.

This was my home for about a month and it certainly felt like home. The staff are wonderful at making you feel comfortable. They provide a light breakfast each morning but it was cheaper to eat out for other meals. It is only a few hundred metres to the Junction Mall where you can find many cages, restaurants and even a food court.
I am visiting Nairobi again soon and I although I will be staying with friends this time, I will make a point of calling in to say hello at CGH.
