We stayed at the House of Waine after arriving in Nairobi in mid-September, 2016. After 24 hours of being on the plane, we arrived at about 10:30 PM. Amazingly, the very courteous and helpful staff offered to fix us dinner at that hour! We said thanks, but no, and collapsed into the very comfortable beds. Coffee and tea arrived early the next morning, and we went downstairs for the very healthy and excellent breakfast. This part of September is apparently in the gap between the high use summer and fall seasons in Kenya and Tanzania - there were only four other visitors while we were there for two nights. We spent the day roaming Nairobi, and returned to a fantastic dinner provided by Bernard, Robert, and the outstanding kitchen staff. Earlier in the day, my wife had mentioned in passing that our trip was partly covered by her birthday. At dinner's end , Bernard, Robert, and the staff presented her with a delicious cake and fine champagne, and sang happy birthday in the local dialect!! The House of Waine is a wonderful small boutique hotel, with the best staff we have met in a very long time. When we return to Africa in the future, it will certainly be where we stay after the long trip from the US.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- House of Waine is a family owned and run property and this is reflected in the name Waine which is made up of the initials of the family members. Originally a family house, it was lovingly converted to a boutique hotel and eventually opened in 2004. The interior design takes its cue from the Matriarch of the family and is imbued with a timeless elegance much like her. ... more less
