The accommodation and facilities are very good. It is some distance from the town centre so there are no restaurants nor bars within walking distance, althought there is a bar/restaurant within Gem Suites. The main problem is the security dogs at the Ehiopian Embassy next door which bark at all times in tye night - if you are a heavy...

GemSuites Serviced Apartments are a very good choice for long-term stay in Nairobi. The staff are very responsive and willing to address any request. The suites are large, extremely well lit with lots of windows and very comfortable. Location is very central and getting from CBD during business or rush hours is not a multi-hour excursion (generally). Restaurant is very...

I was impressed with GemSuites. The hotel was well located in the center of Nairobi, apartment was large and spacious, new furnishings, and the food was good from the restaurant in the lobby. Exercise and pool area were also very nice.

The living and dining room is spacious and the bed room is large enough. The mineral water (4 liter) on the dispenser is provided free. The restaurant offers good quality food from the morning until late in the evening, although it takes time to serve sometimes. The kitchen is convenient to cook by yourself.
