I appreciated the affordable room and was surprised by the expansive garden, the old trees, and the recreational equipment for kids (made me wish I had brought my family along with me). I stayed in a room with a sink but no bathroom, an option that costs less. The washrooms and showers were very close. I had to walk outside... More

To me it will always be remembered as the Mennonite Guest house which my parents even stayed at back in the early 70's. It's a quite safe haven far enough off the A104 that you don't hear any traffic. The wifi is good in every room I've been in. There is no TV but if you need a fix there... More

I think the most unique thing about Amani Gardens, besides the gorgeous, huge yard/gardens, is that they have amenities not many other places have even dreamed of: hot and cold filtered/drinking water always available, free tea service twice a day to guests, restaurant on site, breakfast included, playground for children, refrigerator space available to guests, chairs and benches in the...

I used to stay at downtown hotels or fancy tented camps in Nairobi until a friend suggested the Amani Gardens. It's my new favorite place! INCREDIBLE! My favorite part is that they are honest & fair - the prices are great, their taxi prices are the same that any Kenyan would pay and they include a great breakfast. No upcharging.... More

Three of us 3 nights at Amani Gardens. The first night was in a quad room in the old building with shared bath. The room was a bit small, but adequate for 1 night. We later stayed 2 nights in a triple room with en suite bath in the new building. It was more spacious and had a balcony. I... More

I had checked out of Amani Gardens and bid good-byes after a warn and welcoming four-night saty. Thirty minutes before my flight was scheduled to depart, I fell in the airport gate area and broke my ankle in two places. What a shock and surprise!. This meant a change of plans and so many complications. Amani Gradens' personnel did all... More

I am hesitant to write this review, I have been staying at Amani Gardens Inn for years. The quality of their rooms, service, and gardens is excellent and the costs is shockingly affordable. I am hesitant because I can typically reserve a room a night in advance. If the word gets out how great this place is a one-night-before reservation... More

Depending upon what you are looking for this accommodation may be acceptable. It is one step above a hostel. We stayed in a private room with bathroom and it was clean but spartan. The best feature of this place is the gardens which are very nice. The staff are friendly. The food was not very good. The coffee maker was... More

Beautiful surroundings, friendly helpful staff, oasis in middle of noisy city. It has an air of old world charm and welcomes families and business folk alike. Best - lovely garden. Least - evening meal adequate but not gourmet cuisine!

My family has stayed several times as we travel through Nairobi. We always enjoy our stay - good rooms, good food, great service, playground, basketball court, and relaxing grounds to enjoy. Low cost.
