2/10 Poor

Worst stay ever!
Worst stay I’ve ever experienced. I booked and paid the hotel through however when I got there, they made me pay the rate I already paid a second time, charging me double because I had a guest. This was so unheard of, and I felt completely unsafe in a country I didn’t know at all. This is at very best a 2 star hotel, towels had a bad smell, the room door couldn’t be locked, and there’s no A/C or heater in the room.

One of NBO's Best Kept Secrets Obviously
This is one of Nairobi's best kept secrets. Great, serene ambience you could as well be on a safari with all the wildlife around you. Great friendly staff and one of the best food I have tasted in an NBO hotel. I will stay here again and again.

Safari in Nairobi
West Wood Hotel is a special place. Very conveniently located in West Wood, its backyard makes you feel like you are already on safari with monkeys, did-diks, bee-eaters, etc. Very friendly staff and nice rooms.
