Property conditions & facilities

8/10 Very good

A unique architectural hotel, not one of those chain cookie cutters. The ambiance is very relaxing. The room we had was a good sized studio, with a kitchen. I don’t know how often people use the kitchen, but I being a celiac like to have that option. We needed a few things and Preet, who manages the place made sure we received them. Was not too impressed with the coffee shop. The bar is fine but food is so so. This will be my hotel to stay in when I am in Nairobi

6/10 Good

The hotel is gorgeous and so are the rooms. Unfortunately the sheets were extremely old and smelled. There was no warm water for showers and the kitchen sink stunk. We had to turn on the stove tops for heat because the room was freezing.

No heating, but overall good stay
Room didn't have heat or air, which made it a bit cold and hard to warm up.

The King Post is still one of the best value for money accommodation in a great location in Westlands that I have been to. It is quiet and safe. The architecture of the place is beautiful Mombasa style. The management is extremely accommodating to guests requests. While at the moment the food outlets on the property are closed all other services are operational.

It is a very well executed themed property, with a strong coastal style. The apartments are very comfortable and supported by a good variety of amenities - cafe, restaurant, bars, gym, pool, spa, etc.
