Simple hotel with wonderful staff
The staff of the Kahama are delightful. They are very friendly and really try to make you feel welcome. The hotel otherwise is basic but comfortable enough. The location is okay, about a 10 minute walk to Nairobi Central (although everyone eveywhere in Nairobi tells you not to walk because it’s unsafe).

I would recommend it. People were friendly rooms were nice Wi-Fi was pretty strong. Only drawback is that the entrance is on one side of the highway so getting to it is sometimes out of the way (uber normally takes longer to get there). But overall a good experience!
