Stay at Mvuli House

Posted May 5, 2017
Mvuli House stay was nice. Good location, peaceful and co-operative staff. Only issue with Indian client will be food. However, kitchen staff is co-operative.

Close to Wilson Airport

This hotel is close to Wilson airport (domestic flights). The staff was friendly, but the hotel was not much. I dont recommend the restaurant there either. Wish I could give it a better rating. . .

Very handy overnight stay near Nairobi airport

Posted Jan 29, 2016
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff
Cons: It would appear that someone had used the toilet in our room before our arrival. Senior staff should check rooms.
Location: Handy to airport
Easy access from airport after a daylight flight from Europe. We got a good night's sleep on a superbly comfortable bed (room 209) and were able to leave at noon on the following day. Will most likely stay at MvuliHouse again.

It was nice hotel in a condition of reasonable price. Additionally, hotel staff are kind. But, hotel around is not a good location

it was ok, the hot water ran out in mid shower and the internet could not get a signal on the 4th floor, other than that the staff was very friendly and the restaurant was very good.

Qwik Overnight Stay

Posted Nov 18, 2013 on Hotels
I arrived at 11:30PM and left at 7AM the next morning. All I needed was a shower, bed and breakfast. The B&B provided the shower and bed but not the breakfast. All they offered was cold cereal and toast without butter and jam. They did have coffee and juice.

Good for one night in Nairobi

Posted Jul 5, 2013 on Hotels
We needed a room for one night in Nairobi that was somewhat near the airport and tried the Mvuli Hotel in an effort to avoid the horrible traffic in Nairobi. It was an ok place that served it's purpose. It had a 24 hour guard and the restaurant was good and I would recommend eating there rather than venturing out in the neighborhood. The rooms were small and clean but the bathroom ceiling needed to be painted as it was grungy. Not sure if there is AC, and it is noisy with the window open so find out about that. We were there in winter. We slept well and the service people were all very friendly. We felt safe there.The neighborhood is not great, but is fine to arrive and depart by taxi. It took us 20 minutes to get there from the airport. The drive to the CBD is stopped traffic most of the way and the pollution is very bad. The Mvuli is not a bad option for a short term stay.

Good choice for overnight stay

Posted May 11, 2013
I've stayed here twice now, both times just stopping overnight in Nairobi, and would do again. It's not too far from the airport, and even at $90 per night it's more reasonably priced than many Nairobi hotels. The rooms are small, but comfortable, and there's a nice restaurant with western and African options. I was quite excited to get Weetabix for breakfast. Major drawback was the noise -- bring earplugs or ask for a room away from the road.

Hotels.com had a wrong deskription at the webside. We booked a Room with seperate kitchen, but this type of Room was not at the hotel at all!! We dont blame the hotel for this - only the booking Company. We had a smal Room isted.

Very noisy

Posted Sep 2, 2012 on Hotels
Extremely noisy hotel, requested quite room as we had to leave at 4am but got roadside room that was unbearably noisy. Staff were friendly and insisted we had coffee and some fruit for breakfast even though it was 4am. Rates were quite high for the quality of the hotel.
