One Forty Eight Main House


New, boutique, gem of a hotel in tranquil surroundings

9 Rooms


On the outskirts of Nairobi

Artwork throughout the house and converted studio bedrooms, this is a living gallery.

One-Forty-Eight is located in the peaceful suburb of Langata, bordering the Giraffe Sanctuary, in Nairobi – Kenya’s capital city. This beautiful little gem, with just eight rooms, will provide safari travellers with an ideal location to rest and relax in tranquil surroundings.

An incredible private home forms the foundation of the hotel, along with five brand new suites converted from the on-site artist’s studio. The beautiful loft space of the main house is ideal for children, with three beds. The hotel itself spares no modern convenience – delicious food and wine, beautifully appointed rooms, first class service, in room televisions and wifi throughout, boutique designer shops on site, as well as access to amazing restaurants, museums and wildlife on the doorstep.

Langata is considered Nairobi’s prime location due to its proximity to Wilson Airport and the many attractions nearby. The Giraffe Centre is one of the best attractions in Langata for families. Children learn about conservation and breeding of Rothschild giraffes. Enjoy feeding giraffes from a raised platform, and take pictures with these long-necked mammals. This is really a place to relax, we love that the Main House offers a “Wake Up” service with tea, coffee, homemade morning biscuits etc. delivered to your room – what a way to start or end your safari in Kenya.
