Karen Blixen Cottages


... is located in the Nairobi area of central Kenya.

Situated in the historic and relatively upmarket suburb of Karen, around 10km to the south-west of the city centre, this place is just around the corner from the Karen Blixen House, which is now a museum. In fact the main building of the hotel used to be home to the famous settler's farm manager.

The hotel has a large restaurant, sports bar and coffee garden which cater largely for non-residents.

Guest accommodation is in a dozen tin-roofed cottages around the back. There is also a small spa and gym.

Both the Langatta Giraffe Sanctuary and the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage are in easy range.

Karen Blixen Cottages is a reasonable place which tends to get a generally good level of guest feedback, but which does on occasion let itself down a little. But our biggest issue is the price, which is about twice what it should be in our opinion.
