Located in the peaceful Langata suburb is One Forty Eight Nairobi, a beautiful boutique hotel right next to Nairobi’s Giraffe Sanctuary.
There are just eight bedrooms, split across the main house and a converted artist’s studio. Local artwork and fabrics add splashes of colour and many of the rooms feature flooring and furniture made from beautiful dark wood. For families, there is a loft room with three beds – perfect for the kids.
Both the main house and the studio have a living area with a large open fireplace where guests can enjoy a morning coffee or glass of wine. Head out to the verandah and enjoy al fresco dining and enjoy the leafy green surrounds. Although you are in the city, warthogs, monkeys and peacocks roam freely through the garden and the roars of lions travel from the nearby Nairobi National Park.
