A old house with charm and character, a very welcoming host, our stay in Adriel’s house was really positive. The daily breakfast was enough, except regarding the jam...but he provided us more jam when we asked. The rooms and the beautiful garden were smaller than what we could imagine through the photos but the space was still sufficient. We spend 7 nights in the cottage and one in the apartment, both places were very nice. We had a problem of leak from the ceiling in the cottage but witch should be fixed now. We regretted the dilapidated household appliance in the cottage kitchen and the absence of dining table inside for the apartment. We use the transfer service from the airport proposed by Adriel, it was really convenient! Thus, despite some aspects due to the age of the house, the stay was comfortable and the contact with Adriel very pleasant!

Response from Adriel:
Anais group were good guests to host and we would be very happy to have them again. We are grateful for their very nice review and for their comments which we address below: The leak in the cottage master bedroom was from the upstairs loft bedroom wash hand basin drain pipe which had been disconnected accidentally when cleaning. The loft bedroom guest using the basin wasn’t aware of the leak. The problem has been fixed. The cottage kitchen cooker is old – very old – and the knobs are dropping off. In spite of my being attached to it, parting with the cooker we must, as soon as we are able. The rest of the appliances in the kitchen are ok. The guests in the apartment have been using the large table in the balcony without any problems. Putting an additional table in the apartment would cause clatter.

The stay at Adriel's house was an experience in its own! It is one of Nairobi's oldest houses and made a great spot for a stay in a period home. I enjoyed the lovely terrace and walkable neighborhood. A sudden change in my itinerary was not a problem for Adriel, the handling was very professional and with the provision of fruit, toast and tea the one night stay was a very pleasant experience.

My friend and I had a wonderful stay at Adriel's place. My friend's flight got in pretty early in the morning, and Adriel was very accommodating with her check-in. Overall, it was a great place to spend the night before we left for Masai Mara. The location is great - close to fun parts of the city, but still in a quiet location. I would highly recommend staying here when in Nairobi!
