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.

This is the best hotel deal in Nairobi. I have been visiting Nairobi multiple times a year since 2012, and this is my go-to stop when I have to spend the night in the city. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is reliable, friendly, and invested in providing guests with a positive experience, the neighborhood is good as Nairobi goes,... More

This is a lovely guest house with amazing grounds. The rooms are simple, but extremely clean and well kept up. There is good wifi throughout the facility and a laundry room that guests can use which is lovely after long dusty safaris. The gardens are exquisite and make for a lovely retreat from the craziness of Nairobi. The restaurant serves... More

Love the original "historic" part of this guesthouse and the older rooms best. They are very comfortable and are like stepping back in time to a Nairobi that once was--very quaint, charming, lovely gardens and private verandas and sitting spaces throughout the gardens. The new addition rooms are very comfortable as well, generously-sized, also with private veranda and en suite... More

Amani is quiet and peaceful with beautiful garden spaces and green lawn. And that is the best feature of this Inn. The rooms are definitely older and basic. Beds also are the same. We had a shower in our room but not all rooms do. Good hot water. No TV. Wi Fi was not very good. The breakfast was improved... More
