Had an issue which was to be addressed by senior management who turned up to be moody and had an attitude. Tiny rooms with moulds all over, meals were awful. Would you want to visit a place like this??

Good customer care and service at an affordable price. Rooms are clean and well kept. It's too close to the highway hence light sleepers might not get enough sleep :) Its also keen about keeping pork separate and hence good place for those that don't eat pork. Great stuff!!!!

a lot of mold in the rooms, especially in the bathroom. We (group of 8) ordered dinner in the restaurant downstairs and waited almost 1.5 hours for dishes. The hotel well located on the way from airport

The room i had was tiny with a tiny little screen and chipped wall painting. Okay I think its a bit overpriced considering there are cheaper alternatives with better rooms. The dining is also quit small. Cant sit a large group but the advantage is that it has an outside dining area. The service and food was also average. Incase...

This is fairly good accommodation in Nairobi. The rooms are clea and fairly well serviced. No frills yes but it is very habitable and fairly priced. Not disability friendly however as there are no lifts. Quite limited choices for breakfast although the other meals are fairly good. Ten minutes to the Nakumatt Mega Store is a plus. Will certainly consider...

We stayed in the hotel to organise a workshop. The staff of the hotel was very friendly in helping us making the workshop a succes. The hotel is located not to far from Nairobi center, though along a noisy street. That made sleeping a bit difficult. The rooms are also a bit small and warm. It is a good mid-range...

Mvuli is a value for money hotel. Centrally located and reasonably priced. The reception staff (Maureen, Catherine, Lucy, et al) were friendly and helpful. It has an excellent restaurant and good breakfast. However, the rooms were small, there was no AC and there are no lifts. Also, the area seemed dodgy. Overall a good value for money hotel.
