The apartment is very comfortable and clean with lots of personal touches that reflect the interests of the host. Particularly a copy of Kenyan based magazine from 1970’s that was placed on the work desk. The host, Emekule arranged for a driver to meet me at the airport. Normally I like dealing with transportation myself, but I had so little time to be in Nairobi so this was super convenient. The area of the apartment is very nice, with a cafe/restaurant nearby and some shops and street stands for some quick necessities. Sadly I did not get a chance to explore the area due to time limitations. I met with Emekule the first night of my two night stay. The conversation must have lasted about an hour and half and I consider it one of the highlights of my first brief trip in Kenya.
Kule and Cynthia made me feel very welcome, we sorted everything out through whatsapp and everything (getting and giving back keys) went very smoothly. The apartment was exactly as described and pictured on the listing - nice decoration, large windows, a chilled varanda - and location was great for me because it was close to all the businesses I need to visit and had coffee places and restaurants nearby. Transport was also easy to get - either boda boda or taxi or uber. Very convenient.
It's a really clean and nice apartment, good location and wonderful service!
I've stayed in Kule's place 3 times now and it is always a very smooth operation. The flat is always extremely clean and well-presented and both Kule and his assistant take every effort to make sure everything is ok. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a good base in Nairobi.
I am a regular at Kule's places and I keep coming back for a good reason. It's simply best price quality you can get with that little extra style...
The apartment is in a great location, has everything you need for a short stay, and is very comfortable. Fast Internet, hot shower and a comfortable bed. The gas for the stove was out when I arrived, but was sorted out quickly. I never met my host, but the building caretaker was on sight 24-7 and the host was always prompt when contacted via what's app. I would definitely stay here again.
