Lovely stay
Wonderful relaxing couple of nights before heading on safari. The chalets are lovely and really well appointed and the location is quiet on the edge of the city but great for the National Park, Giraffe Center and elephant orphanage. Service was good and there is a little bar and restaurant where we got some really tasty food and then sat around the fire with a beer.

Clean, safe, comfortable, quiet, and great!
Severine Cottages was a hidden gem in the affluent Karen neighborhood of Nairobi. It is a short (less than 10 Minutes) drive to the Giraffe Center and Nairobi National Park. It is quiet and each room is its own cottage with updated appliances and amenities. The restaurant on site is great too - fair prices and delicious food with many choices. All the staff were so kind and welcoming. I felt very safe the entire time, early-30s female traveling alone. I highly recommend Severine Cottages for your next Nairobi trip!

Loved being there
Liking it is absolutely dependent on expectations! We really enjoyed being there. We had travelled into an interesting Kenya....but a Kenya without hot showers or permanent shelters....and the Severine was like a gift to the weary! Lovely people, too! Absolutely recommend it.
