Had quite a nice time there but the guy at the gym is rude and treats black people like trash. The rest of my stay was brilliant. The breakfast was good and loved the selection of food. The bar had all the drinks I needed. Will be back surely!

So today June 5th 2016, myself and a couple of friends came by the swimming pool area at Villa Rossa Kempisiki to take a swim. However the services rendered were not the best. It could have been better. Slow service for drinks, getting a locker took forever too. I just generally was not impressed with my service today.

The hotel has a very nice ambience. The smile and welcoming gesture by the waiters and all hotel staff made the dinner which was well prepared very delicious. Saturday evenings they offer well done nyama choma. The parking is adequate and secure.

This Kempinski is not at the same level of being a Kempinski. Upon my arrival yes the transport from the airport was excellent on time and good car and the driver very friendly. As it was late i checked in and my card was charged. The king bed was made with 2 single duvet instead of 1 kind size duvet (still can't get the reasoning behind that), the breakfast had no cheddar cheese :-(( and then upon check-out my invoice was so wrong that it took at least 30 mins to get it right and give me back $...

An amazing gracious and hospitable oasis in Nairobi. Professional and pleasant staff enhance the experience of this 5 star hotel. The amenities are only one of the compelling reasons to visit Villa Rosa. They offer four quality restaurants, several lovely bars, a spa and much, much more. You need never leave the property during your stay- we didn't! Rooms are elegantly appointed and you'll adore taking your coffee in the garden. Every luxury that you would find in a fine European hotel is here. ... Read more

The food is quite good in the hotel. We had lunch in the Italian restaurant on a Saturday where they do buy one get one free pizza. The pizza was very good and with the deal it is highly recommended.

We had gone for dinner in December 2015, and the atmosphere and the service top class. Very quality utensils and the dining area is very welcoming. The wall to wall carpet is just amazing. It has very nice ample secure underground parking so nothing to worry about where you will park your car. Although its near a busy road, the acoustics has been done in such away that once inside, you don't hear anything from outside.
