“back in time, but with internet!”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2014

We stayed at Nairobi Cottage for 6 nights. Conveniently located for our business trip, close to workplaces we needed to visit. Calm en quiet in the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. The cottage takes you back 100 years. A survivor amidst modern apartments coming up. Excellent beds, a bathtub that might have hosted Karin Blixen herself, and do-it yourself breakfast in the morning. Adriel and Donated provided fresh fruit, milk and bread to toast. And the speed of the internet was excellent.

“Lovely place, excellent stay”

We were 7 of us coming to Nairobi to attend the wedding of M&M. Two of us stayed in the cottage while the other five stayed in the apartment. Kiloranhouse is a little gem. Simple but very cosy. The gardens are amazing - making Kiloranhouse very private and quiet.. Even if you don't have a green thumb, you'll truly and deeply appreciate the gardens. WIFI with strong connection allowed us to stay in touch with family and friends (work could wait). Adriel and his daughter were impeccable hosts. We were welcomed with a basket of exotic food and breakfast, and the basket kept on being refilled. Must have been a kind of magic! A cleaner came in regularly and the house was always spotless. We also hugely appreciated the possibility of having our laundry done. A guard was invariably present at the main gate, thus keeping the premises safe. Last but not least, the covered balcony in the apartment provided the ideal spot for gathering and relaxing. We had a great time at Kiloranhouse and we strongly recommend it. Hopefully, we will be back soon.

“homely and elegant...ideal for a group of families and children.”

we were a group of five Indian families. having read about Kiloran House on Flipkey, I booked the same for two days and one night with the intention of seeing Nairobi on the second day. However, due to change in booking my travel agent, Moyo travels, we ended up at Kiloran at 10pm and had to leave for the airport next day morning. We infact could not completely exploit what we had paid for even though Dr adriel and his wife were very hospitable. Since the House and Cottage are separate, one is suitable for three families and the house with common bathrooms, maybe for single types as common bathrooms are not everyone's cup of tea. The location is indeed peaceful though slightly difficult to find. We would have liked it better if Dr adriel had waived off some of his charges due to our limited usage/stay, but we cannot blame him as the house was booked in our name for the whole two days. what was good was the location, homeliness and hospitality

“Affordable Secure accomodation”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2012

Adrian and his family are very welcoming, and treated us well. The cottage is basic, but for Nairobi good value. It could do with a standing shower or better hot/cold water control. I had my kids with me, and it was a challenge to get cleaned up. A microwave would be nice, as well as more comfortable couches and better lighting in the living room, to relax in the evening. A bench outside would add a nice touch for those evenings when you want to relax outside. Security is great, and it's a nice location, with the moonflower a walking distance - we had a few meals there. The breakfast provided was okay, but came in handy with little ones.

“quiet, safe and central place to stay in Nairobi”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2012

We have stayed with our family for three nights in Kiloranhouse. We all felt most welcome and safe. In case of any question adriel and his family assisted us (airport transfer etc.). We can only recommend this place. In immediate vicinity to one of Nairobi's best hotels, restaurants and shopping centers.

“A quiet place in bustling Nairobi”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

Nairobi is a busy city and it's nice to have a safe, quiet place to call home while you're there. For me, that was the Kiloran House cottage. The cottage is clean and comfortable with a wonderful round kitchen and a living room you can relax in. The folks that own and run Kiloran House are very nice and work hard to please their guests. And it's very safe and secure. And if you need incidentals, there's a shopping center nearby. We go to Kenya about once a year and I will definitely use Kiloran House again.

I had a wonderful stay at Kiloranhouse Cottage. I am a single woman traveling alone and I felt totally safe. The owner's wife took me to the local outdoor market and I was treated like one of the family. Thanks again. Stephanie Scott

“An amazing experience!”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2012

We could never have imagined that our stay would be in such a gorgeous house in the middle of Kenia's capital. The amazing hospitality of the doctor and his wife and of course Lawrence made our stay even more beautiful. We recommend the Kiloranhouse Cottage to everyone. Greetings from Belgium
