We only stayed two nights at this quaint Guest house but had a great experience in a very short time. Everyone made us feel very welcome! Moses the chef prepared a tasty vegetarian dinner for us one night & we had nice breakfasts with good fruit and coffee. The location was quiet and peaceful with lovely gardens and the rooms... More

Sandavy Guest house is a perfect place to stay while in Nairobi given that you don't need to stay in the middle of the city. I've stayed here many times since 2007, both with my family and with different groups of students, and I have never been disappointed. David and his staff are always treating you with utmost care and... More

Sandavy guesthouse is a fantastic place to stay if you're on a budget and want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Situated in a peaceful garden, this guesthouse offers very homely accommodation and very friendly service. We stayed in the Greater Flamingo room which is an en suite double room: spacious, light and clean. Breakfast (included) was... More

I've stayed here many times in the past few years and have always had a great experience. They are always very responsive and helpful when booking. They know a lot about the area and offer many reasonably priced trips around Nairobi (our favorite was a visit to the Kitengela Glass Company!). We were also able to store luggage for no... More

Also, everything can be confirmed via e-mail with no deposits needed to secure the booking. This is a huge plus for me as I am only staying for one night, and if wiring of... More

We only spent an afternoon here, because we had an early morning flight. The staff was really friendly, Moses is an amazing cook, he even prepared a breakfast for us in the middle of the night! The room (Lesser Flamingo) was clean, bright and homy with a huge, cosy bed. The place has a nice garden and is not far... More

We had a good experience staying at this guest house and would definitely go back as it was good value. We loved the cooks! I must say to me a guest house is a little more of a hotel whereas this is more of a hostel with dorms and bathrooms with cement floors. This was fine and they are a... More

The Sandavy Guest house was the first place I stayed when I arrived in Kenya. Our room was comfortable and the bathrooms featured warm showers. The living room had plush sofas, a flat screen TV and a multitude of DVDs. I even got to watch the East African version of American Idol called Tusker Project Fame. The guest house is... More

Being my first trip to Africa I didn't know what to expect... David and staff took care of my every need, gave good counsel and provided a level of service I only wish I could find in the States.
