A very nice place to stay in Nairobi, green, very quiet and peaceful, amazing garden. Staff is particularly friendly and always happy to help. A lot of nice restaurants around. I strongly recommend, you will feel at home!

I was referred by a friend to Ndemi Place to have time and a meal with my wife during our marriage anniversary. I agreed with the staff on the setting and the meal to be served. He kept his word; we had an outdoor setting, quite private and we breathed the fresh air, heard the birds. The 3-course meal was quite delicious. At the end of it all, my mate loved it. The costs are quite affordable. The downside is the maintenance of the toilets next to the gardens.

Room tip: I loved the Stables

What a find! A simple, yet clean and comfortable B&B in an astonishingly quiet and leafy location in Kilimani. It's not fancy or posh, but it's welcoming and homely, and blessed with gorgeous gardens - a perfect place for peaceful working. The staff are laid back and very friendly and helpful. I've had delicious spicy omelettes for breakfast! There's decent wifi, too. Please note they don't serve dinner (except on request) and it's not a standard hotel in the sense of minibars, 24/7 service, and all the rest of it. But the peace and quiet, the relaxed ambience, the beautiful gardens and friendly staff more than make up for it. It's become my absolute favourite place to stay in Nairobi!

Room tip: The Stables - a new row of pleasant rooms - is very nice.

Beautiful resort. The owner is a very friendly Kenyan lady who was keen to make us feel welcome in Kenya.

Newly refurbished. Offers Kenyan breakfast. The resort has a garden and a gate and a 24 hour security guard. In a green and quiet, yet no posh, part of Nairobi.

There are two supermarkets within walking distance. The Greenhouse is about 5 minute walk but is quite small, the other shopping he complex is about 15 minutes walk, much bigger with variety of shops, restaurants and Cafes serving Italian espresso.

Enjoy!

I spent 5 nights at the Ndemi Place, which is well located off Ngong Road with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. It occupies a large leafy compound and is centred on an old colonial bungalow (with various additions and stand-alone structures), as other plots around it get snapped up for high rise development.

I was given a large room with a desk, chair and multiple power sockets. The wi-fi was good so it was a decent place to work. The TV had at least 30 channels and was reliable. The shower used an instant electric heater, which (as usual with the gadgets) didn't heat much water so the pressure was low and the temperature tepid rather than hot. The drawback with these systems fixed to the shower is that you get no hot water in your sink, which (for men) makes for a more challenging shaving experience!

Breakfast was a weak point I would say. You go into a large empty room on your own, where on a table top you find tea (which you make yourself, once the electric urn has warmed up), a choice on some days of Weetabix and local Kenyan corn flakes, and a plate of small bananas and orange segments covered in cling film. At some point someone will come in and offer you eggs and 2 slices of white toast. There is butter and pretty unpalatable 'jam' (Peptang brand). One day there was brewed coffee in a flask. It's all done in a large bare structure pitched in the garden/car park, rather charmless. For $70 I'd expect a significantly better breakfast spread, e.g. muesli, yoghurt, dried fruit, cheese, cold meats, honey, a selection of breads and pastries. Or at least one or two from that list.

I found the hotel quite a lonely place to hang out. As another reviewer has said, the owner or manager doesn't seem to be around most of the time, and the place is run by a few quiet young men with whom there's limited interaction. It's just not that friendly or welcoming. You're on your own.

So in short, plus sides were a large and comfortable room, good TV and reliable wi-fi. Downsides were weak showers, lack of sink hot water, limited breakfast and overall lack of that certain friendliness and atmosphere that would make you want to come back.
