This is long but takes while to really explain how bad it got. The showers are absolutely disgusting. Layers and layers of slime have hardened over the years and are permanently caked on the fixtures. Nonetheless, the first day I had a hot shower, but after I was done the water wouldn't turn off. I was lucky to know what...

Sadili is a fine establishment in a great location - it is not by any means your normal tourist trap, but gives a real insight into life for many in Nairobi. Great fish and chips too! Wonderful sporting facilities

The place was at little bit off the city. The Environment was not too bad. There was no good restaurant. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and good. There were no fans or air conditioner in my room but at the time of visit the weather was generally cool, so I did not feel the effect much. There was no...

The rooms were comfortable and very clean. Included wifi was so helpful! Laundry service was available, close to some local transit if that how you plan on getting around. All in all a great value. But what made Sadili so fantastic was the people, they were all so acomidating, and many have turned into friends I am still in touch...

Sadili will always have a special place in my heart. I stayed for an extended stay that lasted about a month through a program that was in Nairobi shooting a documentary. My team and I stayed in Gona Suites, about a good four or five flight of stairs going up to the rooms. There is nice greenery around the building...

The Sadili Oval facilities are well maintained, cleaned daily, include wifi, and are a great place to meet locals as well as sometimes other travelers. There are tennis courts, a rugby field, and a pool on site, as well as a cafe. Some may consider their location near Kibera to be a drawback - and indeed if you need to...

I stayed at Sadili for a month in May 2013 while visiting Nairobi and am returning in July in a few days for another three weeks. My room was comfortable with a big window that I could open during the day and close securely at night. Hot water systems work in the rooms and if something goes wrong they will...

“The rooms are at least a three story walk up, I'm from New York so living in the 5 story walk up was no biggie for me and I loved the view, but ask for a lower room if you think you'll need it.”
