overview

Set in 2.5 acres of lush gardens, House of Waine is a colonial-style boutique hotel located in a peaceful suburb in Nairobi. The hotel provides a serene gateway in a tranquil setting, while still remaining close enough to the hustle and bustle of the city. Offering great value and exceptional service, House of Waine is an ideal place to enjoy a pre- or post-safari stop over.

See wildlife in the Nairobi National Park and the Daphne Sheldrick wildlife sanctuary, visit the nearby Giraffe Center or explore the bustling and vibrant city of Nairobi. There are a number of galleries and museums to visit for an insight into local culture and history, or simply relax at the hotel where you can enjoy an elegant high tea.

Traveller Reviews

  • House of Waine - absolutely fantastic! Amazing service from start to finish, and Nick had contacted them to arrange a surprise birthday dinner for me, which they set up in a private area just for the two of us with an open fire and rose petals everywhere. The room was beautiful and also filled with gorgeous rose petals, and the garden areas and setting really made you feel a world away from the city. It was such a fabulous place - I would absolutely recommend it and wish we were there for longer!
