Travellers' Choice
We're a thoroughly new kind of hotel; so much so that we actually call ourselves a house, as we aim to be a Melting Pot for getting people together and because our way of doing things is perhaps just a little more personable and informal than some. And a touch off-beat: unusual cuisines; unexpected events; untypical meetings; unorthodox interiors; unconventional bedrooms; uncommon people. We have 83 bedrooms. 7 event and meeting spaces (some indoors and some out). 4 restaurants and bars. An outdoor pool. A back garden. A gym. And lots of surprises to keep things buzzing.

I had breakfast at The Social House ,Nairobi for my birthday a few days ago -My wife’s treat . I must commend the very kind young Chef Mercy who was very patient with my early morning demanding requests . I am a frequent guest at the house and wanted something different, called out the chef and she came very fast and patiently listened. She suggested we have the Eggs Benedict which was pretty delicious . The breakfast buffet is also a winner .I’d definitely recommend.

Although very familiar with The Social House we return time after time, because we can always guarantee the meat platter will be perfect, the wine is excellent and we appreciate the wonderful service we get here. Would thoroughly recommend.
