Amani Gardens In is well named as it is a place of peace in a very busy city. I have stayed here many times in the last four years and have have had nothing but positive experiences. I have recommended it to friends and colleagues who have also enjoyed their stay. The staff are courteous and helpful, the food tasty... More

I always enjoy coming to Amani Gardens Inn. It is a great relaxed atmosphere with lots of helpful people on the grounds. Since the last time, I've noticed the grounds have more plants and beautiful flowers that have been added. Loved it. Thanks.

Our family loves staying at Amani. We've stayed there more than 4 times in 2 years. Each time we've seen improvements happening, minor and major. Several of the rooms have been completely remodeled and it appears they are working on others. The thing we enjoy most is the large green yard and garden in the center of the property. We... More

Lovely gardens, very friendly, good wifi and breakfast well done by splendid egg men and smiling staff. Rooms are pretty Spartan - but then this was the Mennonite Guest House, so to have it otherwise would seem odd. But the shower was fine, and the inn is well situated. Good value.

The hotel is located in Westlands near the busy waiyaki way and is convenient if you want to get out of Nairobi City quickly. There is a mall with good restaurants less than 1km walk. The new wing has modern and well furnished rooms. Ideal if you want a quiet night sleep and for business travelers. Internet is provided free... More

Thanks for you nice review. You have pointed out one of the best assets we have with Amani Gardens, our central location. We are in the center of a shopping district, many restaurants as well as several NGO's and international organisations who work in Nairobi. Many of the tourist locations are not far either. Downtown in only a few minute... More

If you're looking for a quiet, friendly, relaxing, and affordable stay in Nairobi, Amani Gardens is the place for you. Clean, comfortable, simple accommodation. Traveling alone, I had a single room with shared toilet/showers down the hall. This worked well for me. There are also self-contained rooms. Meals are good and very reasonably priced, and the company of other guests... More

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.
