My wife and I spent seven nights here over the course of the past two months. It was three different stays, each time in a different room. All of the rooms were comfortable, clean, and much like an economy hotel room in the States. (We had dinner with the manager one night, and he indicated they are in the process... More

The service and the surroundings blended to make this an unforgettable place. Comfort was found in everything from the room, the grounds, the food, and most of all the staff. Really no better place to stay anywhere else in the area, whether for business, or like myself, just an interruption in a long journey seeking solitude and a bit of... More

Thanks for a positive experience of meetings in your beautiful setting. I enjoyed the good food at meal times and the morning/afternoon tea breaks. The staff were very helpful and responsive to our needs. The meeting room was a bit tight for our group of 25, but the many gazebos and meeting spaces in the gardens for small group work... More

My family recently stayed at the guest house (now called Amani Garden Inn) while staying in Nairobi. It was a perfect place for our family. The rooms were nice and comfortable. We spent most of our time outside, enjoying the beautiful gardens and the perfect Nairobi weather. Our children played tennis and enjoyed the rope swings. The food was excellent,... More

The staff at MGH went above and beyond during our meetings at MGH; they were kind, thoughtful, very helpful, friendly and gracious. The yards were beautiful and well kept. The food was delicious; loved that there was a green salad with each meal and lots of fruits and vegetables. I very much appreciated the extra effort from the kitchen staff... More

We stayed in this guest house for 2-3 night stops on 4 occasions over the course of about a month. It acted both as a hub for travelling, and a wonderful quiet little spot while waiting over. It is extremely secure, has beautiful rooms and gardens, along with a hot breakfast. The gardens are large and peaceful and the outdoor... More

My 8 year old son said that the Mennonite Guesthouse was his favourite part about our trip to Nairobi. The grounds are beautiful and very restful. The food was varied and well prepared. You can't beat the tea-time cookies and cakes at 10am and 4pm! The staff was very helpful for us in setting up day-trips to different sites in... More

I was pleasantly surprised of how lovely this place was. Normally at a hotel you mostly stay in your room and walk through the lobby. Here we spent almost our entire time in some of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. I saw birds that I didn't know existed. I didn't expect to see such a beautiful park... More

We recommend the Mennonite Guest House to all of our visitors, both business and personal, who visit Nairobi.

I recently coordinated transportation for a conference involving hundreds of delegates from all over the world. All who stayed at the guest house gave glowing reviews. I was especially impressed by MGH's prompt email responses, confirming availability and responding to guest requests.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Amani Gardens Inn, formerly the Mennonite Guest House has a 50-year reputation of warm hospitality and quiet gardens. Located in Westlands, our guest house is situated conveniently close to major shopping malls, banking centers, and restaurants, yet the place still retains the feel of a retreat in the countryside with our old English-style buildings and ancient trees. You can spend the morning quietly reading under a 100-year old jacaranda tree, or hop in a taxi and be exploring down town a few minutes later. Amani means peace in Swahili which is a distinctive of the Mennonites. We hope you will find our gardens a peaceful oasis in the middle of a bustling city. Amani means peace in Kiswahili. Spacious gardens, friendly staff, and traditional American food bring our guests back again and again. Amani Gardens is under the Mennonite Board of East Africa. ... more   less
