We stayed one night here on our way in to Nairobi. The staff were so welcoming and accommodating. Secret to the showers: The switch to turn on the "on demand hot water" is either on the wall outside the shower or above the sink. It's the switch that has the red square that illuminates once it is on. Secret to... More

We stayed at Sandavy for only one night before our safari. The staff were quite nice, and willing to have our breakfast ready before sun-up. Rates were fair, but not great. The room was decent sized, with a shared hallway bath. The campus grounds are well taken care of and the location is great. Sandavy is a nice comfortable place... More

What friendly, helpful staff and delicious food! An excellent stay not far from Junction shopping centre if you choose to go out for meals. Also very quick and easy to get into town. The accommodation is fairly basic, but clean and comfortable. I stayed in one of the rooms with shared bathroom facilities, but was lucky enough not to have... More

Cannot say enough about this place and the people who work here. If you're an independent traveller, you'll find Sandavy a lovely and safe place to stay Nairobi. Three tips (1) if you want to avoid the pricey safari tour operators, and looking for something more personalised at a budget price, David can arrange personal drivers who can take you... More

I have stayed at Sandavy on Ndemi Close multiple times, and with both big groups and by myself. This location is great -- guests can walk to multiple shopping centers, and it is a relatively easy drive (within the context of the infamous traffic of the city) to a wide variety of wonderful locales. David, Sandy, and staff have been... More

I've stayed here before and it is one of my first choices for B&B in Nairobi. It is in a quiet neighborhood, within walking distance to basic shops and restaurants (Adams Arcade and beyond), on the same side of town as the airport, is very clean and has very friendly staff. The food is fine, nothing extra-ordinary, but fine. It's... More

I've stayed here on several occasions in 2012 and am now back in 2013. It remains a lovely place to stay, within reasonable walking distance to Adams Arcade (which is getting better by the year). Many of the rooms have a shared bath in the hallway, sometimes shared with one other room, sometimes private to just one room, and sometimes... More

We had just finished our epic 9-day safari and the three of us wanted a restful, albeit short, night of sleep before our very early departure out of Kenya the next day. It was not to be. The property of the b&b is very quaint, that is, if you can find it! No signs indicate the location of the b&b,... More

Thank you for the feedback. I apologize once more for the inconvenience. After confirming your booking I reserved for you the only triple room the ‘violet backed starling’ but a new staff member erroneously put other clients into your room rather than the Lesser Flamingo Room. I did show you the booking log that showed you were supposed to be... More

I was traveling solo and was very happy when I saw my room The Greater Flamingo. It was clean, charming, airy and facing a well-kept garden. The place was quiet just as advertised. Pamela and Moses, the staff, were also very friendly. But my luck turned bad when a group of local college girls accompanied by an older woman, perhaps... More

This is one of the most regrettable incidences that have ever happened at Sandavy and we highly regret and apologize about it.

When we arrived at the Sandavy Guest House we found a warm welcome from Marietta. Almost instantly we felt that we could relax, as if we were in the home of a friend or family. Marietta continued to make us feel at home by helping us in several different ways such as laundering several clothing items for us even though... More
