“Boutique hotel in Nairobi”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

If your like me and looking for a relaxed friendly hotel, with good staff and excellent customer service, then head to Karen Gables!

It's a very homely environment with none of the usual hassle of large character-less hotel chains. Tucked in a quiet location in Karen, you have access to the reserves and then return to "your house" for peace & rest before heading off to your next adventure.

It's just an awesome place

“Amazing home”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Perfect choice for our short layover in Nairobi. The house is beautiful and so were the staff! Feels like a home away from home. Christian and Clemence made us feel so welcomed and Sansu, the German Shepherd (bear!) made our stay even more special as he is always there to greet us!
Highly recommend a stay here, the rooms are spacious and beautifully presented. The house has various fireplaces and cosy corners to chillout at.
Easy access to Karen Blixen museum, the giraffe centre and the elephant sanctuary.
Can't wait to be back!

“Perfect Stay at Karen Gables!”
Reviewed 3 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had an awesome two night stay at Karen Gables! The property is beautiful and comfortable, and waking up to the sound of birds and fresh air was unexpected in Nairobi. Fred, Clemence, and Chris made our stay perfect. They also arranged a great driver for us (Martin) who was able to take us through Nairobi National Park and to all of the best spots in Karen. Highly recommend. We had breakfast and dinner at Karen Gables, both of which were spot on. Karen Gables was such a nice alternative to a big chain hotel that we probably would have stayed in otherwise. If we pass through Nairobi again, we will absolutely be back!
