The biggest advantage of La Mada is also it's biggest disadvantage. It's location is simply in the middle of nowhere! If you're looking for a quiet (as deserted) and secluded place to write a book and not too picky about service and facilities - go for it. Otherwise, there are quite a few hotels in Nairobi that would be more... More

Great location. Friendly staff. Good atmosphere. A bit noisy at night though because we had to leave the windows open. But that's understandable for somewhere that central. Very comfortable beds though, and once asleep.

LaMada is a lovely hotel as reviewed by others but it is NOT where the arrow on the Trip Advisor map would lead you to believe. It is WAY the heck out of town. Miles from anything. If you want to 'get away from it all' it's perfect, but NOTHING is within walking distance and it costs a fortune coming... More

My husband and I took our daughter and I for lunch on a Sunday Afternoon. Their property is very good-clean and Spacious Service. But we did not enjoy their meal. It was cold and undercooked.

This beautiful hotel is located at the outskirts of Nairobi. It's is immersed in nature, surrounded by green vegetation, in a quiet atmosphere. Staff are very kind, polite and helpful. Mr Martin, the manager, has been ready to accommodate all our requests. Rooms are nice, reasonably arranged, and, as the rest of the hotel, kept very clean. At night, it... More

Unlike some of the new hotels I have visited since arriving in Nairobi, the Hotel La Mada has been around for many years.

This place is certainly a nice, quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of central Nairobi but it's a fair distance outside the city so it would be difficult to call it a real Nairobi hotel. Quite small and intimate, the rooms are clean and cool with perhaps the most comfortable bed sheets I've ever slept under! The polished wooden... More
