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.

I spent 2 nights here (A Monday and Tuesday night) and had no issues the entire time. If you talk to the staff they are really great. The staff at the restaurant are wonderful, the front desk staff are willing to help with any problems you may have, and the manager was wonderful. The room was clean and practical for... More

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

Friendly people ( even when we caused them some troubles due to misbehavior of a drunken friend ) The major advantage is the location, you will be close to everything as... More

I felt as an Irish man very exposed to everything, the location being ok during the day became very dangerous at night. Maybe as a pit stop its ok but apart from that id stay away. In saying this the staff were very friendly and very welcoming. It's just a pity about the location and the slaughter house in front... More

hello Traveler we are sorry for the experience you had while your stay at the Embassy.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night, the staff at the hotel were great and very friendly. There is a well priced cafe inside the hotel, a good wifi connection and they can arrange airport pick ups. The room was nothing special and unfortunately there was alot of street noise which made sleeping slightly difficult, for one night... More
