We recommend the Mennonite Guest House to all of our visitors, both business and personal, who visit Nairobi. The location, in Westlands, makes it a convenient location to getting to other parts of the city. We love dropping in for tea at 10 & 4; the baked goods are great; the staff knowledgeable and kind in helping you navigate the... More

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.

I have just completed a 3-month stay at the guest house and was really surprised to see some of the recent reviews regarding safety and problems with their priorities so I felt compelled to share my experience. In my months there, I had the opportunity to get to know many of the staff, including the management, guest services, and security... More

I stopped here for one night before going to Kijabe for a conference. I was picked up at airport by a taxi arranged by the mennonite house. It cost me 1700 K schilling. I arrived at the guesthouse around 7pm and was shown to my room. The room was clean and simple, but also comfortable. The bathroom was also very... More

I've spent time at the MGH on numerous occasions. It's really a perfect place to stay. The garden is unbelievably relaxing and peaceful - the perfect place to rest or plow through a bunch of email. The rooms vary from new and self contained to older and shared facilities, but are also priced accordingly. There is ongoing improvements in the... More

Before I explain the title of my review, let me say that I have stayed at the guesthouse several times over the last two years and have always had a pleasant experience. The staff are superb and the grounds are beautiful. However, on my latest trip, I have had the most disturbing of experiences. Last night, I awoke to what... More

Thank you for staying with us and your review. We are happy that you have stayed with us several times in the last couple years. There was certainly not a gun fight at the guest house. The shots you heard were by the police on a nearby street. The guest house was never in danger. We take our security very... More

As a long time guest of the guest house, I am saddened to see the management going awry. Instead of investing in the wonderful local staff, the prices have been raised to support unnecessary investment in bizarre ways for the facility. The location is still beautiful, but as a foreigner myself, I would like to see the locals supported rather... More

Thank you for your review as well as being a long-time guest. We would like to assure you that we invest heavily in our staff. They are paid better rates that you would find at other establishments like ours in Kenya. This past year the staff was also given year-end bonuses and loan forgiveness as well as other benefits.

a great location with huge, beautiful gardens... the staff was pleasant, and the rooms in which we stayed during the first half of our stay were beautiful. But avoid at all cost the rooms ( 9-10-11) that are not next to the tennis court : they are dark, a bit shabby, and most of all there is a very noisy... More

Mennonite Guesthouse is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. It's where my wife and I always go when passing through Nairobi. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. I have never been disappointed with the meals and you can meet lots of interesting people around the dinner table. The reception staff are always helpful when it comes to planning for... More

The grounds really are as beautiful as the pictures! The staff is friendly and one feels as though you are in someone's home, rather than an impersonal hotel. The very best part is hearing the stories of the other guests, at meals and tea time. Each day we met fascinating people, mostly missionaries and short term medical personnel, such as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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 90-year old jacaranda tree, or hop in a taxi and be exploring down town a few minutes later. Spacious gardens, friendly staff, and traditional American food bring our guests back again and again. ... more   less
