I would like that you start understanding that this hotel here is a low class hotel, in terms of that I would guess that this place has no stars at all on the Michelin guide, and if Michelin visited, it would likely be given a minus star. But beware and behold. This hotel is maybe quite simple, but is has some properties which makes me come back again and again to this place. I guess that I have slept over here maybe 20 times or so, over the years, due to the following: The hotel is having simple rooms, indeed very simple. However there is a TV-set, and imagine - a phone to the reception in the room, then there is a shower, a bed, a chair, and that's it. And now to the cost: It cost USD 10 to stay overnight here, outside of season, and some USD 15 during the tourist season. USD 10!!! And then another wonderful thing: This place is sparkling clean. You may think that due to the rawness of the hotel, the concrete, the Italian style floor, that it is not clean, but you will experience that the beddings are smelling as your mother made them during your childhood. They are nothing to write home about in terms of the looks - but this is a hotel which accommodates every other Kenyan, so, you will be seeing how the usual Kenyan stays. So, if you are visiting Nairobi, imagine - you can stay here at 10% of the cost of the middle class hotels, and at 3% of the cost of the 5 star hotels. The food in this Seldom Hotel, in their common room at the first floor, is simple, but tasty. I can strongly recommend their breakfast - it is very typical Kenyan - a bit British inspired - and consist of: Sausage, Eggs, Coffee, and a Samosa or Mandazi if you want. You pay for each of the things - and you will end up paying in total maybe USD 3 or so per person. When you sleep over in the room - you will pay for the room, not for the number of persons, so, if you are 2 persons, then you still only pay USD 10 or USD 15. In terms of security, it is secure. The hotel is locked during the night, so I have never had any issues there.…
Stayed here for one night. Hotel is off a busy freeway that is loud all night. We looked at three rooms; the first had live bugs crawling on the bed, the second stank of cigarette smoke, the third's bathroom door was rotten. They told us the price is Ksh 1,000 per night if you check in after 6 pm and check out before 10 am. If you need the room during the day the price rises to 1,500. This is a "by the hour" hotel during the day which explains this rule. We were planning on staying here for two nights but it is not worth the money. Better to Airbnb somewhere else than to stay here.
For $15 I got a small room, wide bed with clean sheets, a very hot shower with a clean towel, air conditioning and a room with an outside entrance. (no seat on the toilet.) Maid service was offered daily but I declined. (only me). The bar was always open for a cold beer (Warm or cold? was always asked of me.) The restaurant was open at 6:30 am. The menu was cheap and limited but who was there for the food anyway?) The staff was cooperative and the office helped me get my cell phone working. One of the maids washed my clothes for $10, but be advised that there is no electric clothes dryer so you need a dry day if you want dry clothes. No elevator either. I would definitely stay there again. A taxi to downtown was $5 with my taxi driver Amos Nyaga. Airport taxi's want $40 one way, Call Amos or negotiate for $20. (email: email@example.com, 0725163370). He drove me everywhere: Elephant orphanage, Safari park, giraffe park. I once hired him for all day for $30. He helped me shop too. (English, Swahili and Kikuyu) The Orbiz day and nightclub tours were worthless! The hotel manager, Zero, assured me that they would soon have Wifi. Lots of parking also.…
My business trip to Kenya became an disaster for me, I was fired from my job and when I really realised it was perfect. Kenya only though me about self sustainable development and being me all the years. I can't for get this hostel because it's has a meaningful way to get in touch with my self. Of you need to a cheap and good room and love to talk to people about life and fun, this is where you should be staying. Money can't buy everything, trust me. Staff and hotel is very pretty and l loved it all
