Hotel's Favourite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
This was an amazzzzzing experience. Very exceptional. I booked this last minute when the original place I booked turned out to be a scam and I was stuck. I saw this place come up and I looked at the reviews to make sure it was good (I also knew the place as I grew up around that area and knew they were reliable and would not scam me).

Anyway, I was glad to get this and they allowed me to book and only pay when I actually got on site. I checked in very late and they were very accommodating.

This place is not just good…. It is amazingggg. It surpassed my expectations. The level of service and security is exceptional. Everyone in the staff is so friendly, provide exceptional service for the security, check-in/lobby staff, cleaners, laundry were just simply amazing. Jacinta, Kizito, Anne and so many others went far and beyond. Had such an amazing time. Anything I needed was provided quick and swift. They provide you with bottle water everyday and also clean the whole apartment (including bathrooms, kitchen, all dishes, floors etc) daily. They also provide you with bathroom amenities, clean towels and sheets daily. They also make your beds and rooms daily. You really feel like you are at home but also on vacation. Had a great city view as well.

The staff all know you and make every effort to make your stay amazing. The security is also on point. No one can just come in. You have to register visitors for them to be allowed in and they will check their IDS and cars before being allowed into the property. The main pool was amazing but deep, so be prepared for that (this is not a heated pool though)

This place is right next to Yaya Center, which is very convenient for everything you need for your stay as well as close to many restaurants and stores within walking distance. It’s very quick and easy to get Ubers there as well.

They are doing some renovations to the gym and lobby (they have temporary setups of this at the moment), but from what saw, these will look very good when done.

If you are thinking about staying here, please don’t hesitate. You will love it and want to stay longer or come back. I have already recommend this place to family and friends who I know will be traveling to Nairobi in the next coming months.

To sum it up: this is an amazing place to stay and surpassed what I expected, very clean as well. Book this place… you will not regret it! It’s simple amazing. I will be staying here when I go back.

We stayed at Yaya for over 3 months as we transitioned between homes . Our first apartment was small but the management quickly upgraded us to a more spacious apartment. Our housekeeping staff Alice was an incredible self-starter who made sure the apartment was child proofed by putting safety locks on the windows, would ensure necessary repairs were done before we raised them and was constantly looking for ways to make out stay pleasant. The reception staff was always very warm and friendly and accommodated our requests to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We loved using the gym and pool that were always sparkling clean.
Finally, we got a Christmas gift in form of a safari tour and lunch at carnivore that we enjoyed immensely.
Yaya apartments made the transition completely pain free, we were assured of a safe, warm and convenient environment as we searched for a new home.
Perhaps what would have made this stay even better is having a free laundry service.

Amazing staff, always professional and friendly I highly recomend Yaya hotel. The location is also great next to Yaya mall with a direct access underground and a wide range of shops open 7 days a week. You will also enjoy the morning breakfast from art caffe or Java with always a large variety of options to start the day. Looking forward to be back again very soon...

This wonderful place was recommended to me by a friend who had previously stayed there. From the moment one arrives, one feels safe; the security checks at the gate are both pleasant and comprehensive. In my few years of travel, the rooms are the most spacious I've seen. This position benefited me because it was close to the mall; I could practically walk into the mall without leaving the doors!!! how inconvenient
The staff was so friendly and supportive that I was always greeted with smiles in the hallways. The hotel has everything a business traveler needs: excellent wifi, a great location for fast meetings, and it's just 5 kilometers from the CBD. If you enjoy swimming, this location has an Olympic-sized pool!! I'll definitely be back!! Thank you to the entire Yaya team.

We stayed in Yaya for more than a year and if we should use a word to describe it,it's we felt at home
The service was amazing, the staff and Management are so professional and very attentive to details.
We enjoy the huge pool, the great playground and moreover the wonderful tennis court with a great coach available at a cost.
The rooms were always neat and technician was available at all time for any kind of technical concern we could have.
We recommend Yaya not only for the amazing stay we had but also because of the proximity with the great shopping mall inside the compound, the availability of all kind of transport right at the gate. We enjoyed and will forever keep a wonderful souvenir of our stay.

I booked suites at Yaya Towers for five colleagues who traveled to Nairobi for a meeting. The suites were excellent value. The pool is magnificent. And since most of them had only been to Nairobi once or twice in the past and did not want the inconvenience of traveling around by taxi to get small errands done, it was ideal to be located right next to Yaya Centre. The staff were extremely helpful and worked with me as the size of our group and our needs changed in the course of making the booking. My only complaint is that the extensive security was an inconvenience; perhaps they would consider an App through which guests could easily be allowed in.

The hotel is centrally located. The adjacent and interconnected Yaya Mall made it extremely easy for shopping, multicuisine restaurants, and all day to day needs.

We stayed in the hotel apartment for almost 2 months. The staff went out of their way and provided all additional support needed. Reception was always available and very cooperative, courteous and polite. Covid protocols were seriously followed and security was quite tight. We had our younger son stayed alone in hotel entire day and the hotels staff will check on from time to time if he needed any support.

This is indeed a perfect place to stay for short term visitors and we would highly recommend.

The most ideal location next to the shopping mall wirh a back door in the basement to the mall.

The staff are amazing and the most kindest people i have met. Right from the reservation process with James and Simon who went an extra mile to accomodate my requests. The apartments are newly refurblished with very tasteful decor.

The housekeeping manager is very humble, sweet and attentive and so is all her staff. At the reception Jacinta will treat you with utmost care and love and so are all the other receptionist well trained, professional and just good people. The security is tight and i loved all of them. They always smiled and ready to assist. I cannot fail to mention my housekeeper Lucy, what a beautiful soul, kind, hardworking and most loving lady. She did me good in so many ways am grareful to have met her.

The complex has two pools and a tennis court with an elite couch who is also very professional.

The construction was still ongoing but the manahmgement was very accomodative. I staycationed for a month and worked throught out and they were able to pause and allow me to take meeting calls.

I had the best time in Yaya Apartments cannot wait to get back. I highly recommend.

Kind Regards,
Beatrice

I stayed at Yaya from about a year and i simply want to go back again. The staff are warm and always helpful. It is clean and with very good security protocols. Convenient since the Yaya Center is right there and it is somehow central to different parts of Nairobi. Car parking management is well organized and quite accessible to the reception. Spacious play grounds and gym are big pluses under Covid-19 time, you can still exercise safely. One concern was the lift issue, but it seems fixed and in full operation now.

They have ongoing modernization exercise taking place floor by floor but the new units look stunning. I look forward to returning in a few weeks.

When you are new to a City like Nairobi especially in Cvid times you hope to find a place that is safe, clean and cosy. Yaya has it all! We stayed for two months at a resident apartment. It is fully equipped with anything that you may need. It's staff is super friendly and gives you the feeling that you are at home. Cleanliness rules are strictly observed. The place is good for family and business and is very conveniently located. The swimming pool and gym offer good opportunity to relax and you can do shopping nextdoors.
