About Us

The King Post

Boutique Hotel

Stay at The King Post - a recipient of Trip Advisor’s 2017 Certificate of Excellence award - on your next visit to Nairobi. The King Post is a Swahili Village that is unique in every sense. This business boutique hotel brings about a unique architectural synthesis between the East African Coast and the lands across the Indian Ocean, reflecting social and cultural interaction between the regions over more than a millennium.

Four cultures are merged to give birth to a fascinating amalgam: the Swahili building tradition developed along the coast for more than a millennium; the elegant simplicity of the massive Omani square housing introduced in the late eighteenth century; the extrovert Indian embellishment added during the nineteenth century; and the colonial intervention during the twentieth century which made itself more palpable and unique.

The charismatic entrance and gateway leading to the intricate Swahili craftsmanship within our hotel’s apartments brings alive the romance of a long-forgotten era, with the ambiance of a private home, and the trimmings of a business boutique hotel.

The King Post is located in Westlands, Nairobi, a prime location that is popular for its vibrant nightlife and proximity to tourist and business sites. We are 45 minutes from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, 20 minutes from Kenyatta International Convention Center, and 15 minutes from Karen Blixen & Railway Museums.
