I had been living in Nairobi for 3 months and wanted to lives in the central business district for my last week. This hotel was great. First off you can't best the price. Rooms were clean, water was hot, staff was friendly, location was perfect! It is definitely not a five star hotel but I feel you get more than... More

We came from a top rated property a long way from town.....it cost a fortune in taxis to get anywhere and for a private room with its own bathroom was twice the cost of what we are paying at the Embassy. Its a fantastic budget hotel for travellers who want to be right in the City. Lots of great (and... More

Stayed there for a couple of days some weeks ago. The hotel is cheap, centrally located with quite big rooms. However, it did not look like it had been cleaned thoroughly for quite some time, especially the hallway. You should not try and get some advice from the staff since they are obviously biased and not telling you the cheapest... More

Just unbelievably comfortable for the price. And as I expected from the 25 dayer on this page, the staff are all really lovely and everything just feels comfortable and nice. Nothing is ever a problem (bicycle, receipts, odd requests), hot water and internet work perfectly for me (three days so far on 3rd floor), I've stayed Thursday to Saturday and... More

This is a good budget option in a convenient and (relatively) quiet part of Nairobi. The rooms are basic but spacious, clean, and self-contained with hot water (though our shower head didn't work). The hotel doesn't allow alcohol but has a restaurant with good and inexpensive local food. For the price it's a good option for travelers in Nairobi for... More

The room was clean and quite big. Hotel is perfect if you need a place to sleep and leave you luggage. It's located in the city center so you can find shops, reastaurants, ATM not far from the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Embassy is a realy good choice.

Just simplest place to stay in Nairobi. Good for budget travelers. There is free wi-fi (rather slow), restaurant, they can organize taxi to airport for 2000KES (Oct 2013). Located opposite market where you can buy souvenirs, also close to supermarkets where you can pay credit cards. Rather expensive if I compare to similar standard hostels in Central Europe, however East... More
