Located in the Westlands area, the PrideInn Hotel and Conference Nairobi is in a compound.
I felt very safe, with the 24 hour guard at the gate.
You'll need a car, or to take taxi's everywhere, nothing is in walking distance.
The staff were very helpful in arranging cars for us, and taking us around town.
I have stay in Nairobi on semi regular basis during the past few years and have enjoyed and not enjoyed a wide variety of accommodations from the elegance and history of the Norfolk to the 'economy' of the Embassy.
What I was looking for was a safe, quiet, comfortable and affordable place to stay with self catering facilities.
The PrideInn, proved to
be the place. And has been the choice for the past few trips to Nairobi.
The king size bed was comfortable and with no hesitation the request for additional pillows was honored.
The instant hot water in the bathroom was a treat, immediately after the dusty trip from Arusha.
The small kitchen with table and seating for two was more than satisfactory and the kitchen with 4 burner stove and oven, decent sized fridge and microwave made it possible to prepare a variety of tasty dishes in the comfort of our room.
There is no hot water in the kitchen tap but a kettle made cleaning up easy.
The average Nairobi restaurant has sameness about it and the
high end ones although pretty good come with a pretty good bill at the end of
The hotel is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is a one and two story structure with in a walled compound with hotel askari and askari from a security company working side by side.
The well kept and attractive garden area with plunge pool is monitored by security cameras situated in the office.
Although away from the
hustle and bustle of Westlands business area, the malls and entertainment it is
still only a three hundred shilling taxi ride it one wants to enjoy the
shopping, dining and the nightlife of Westlands.
I have found all the staff, from housekeeping bar and restaurant very friendly and eager to help..
On the occasion when things did not work a real effort was made to correct the problem.
On the one occasion when the staff could not make
an immediate repair an upgrade was offered.
On the occasion we have used the restaurant we have found the menu interesting and the food will prepared. The included breakfast although not great is adequate.
I look forward to more relaxing weekends at PrideInn, Raphta road.
