A really warm welcoming place to stay. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, not what we expected in the centre of Nairobi! The first time we stayed in an en-suite room in the 'new' block and the room was beautiful with a double balcony. When we returned after a few days away we stayed in a cheaper room with a shared...

We stayed here with our two young children and loved it. It is really the best place we know of in Nairobi for families to stay - lots of green space, a playground, a climbing tree and swing. Very affordable, especially for Kenyan residents. The only reason this review isn't "excellent" is because the online reservation did not work.

Hi Colin- Thanks for your nice review. We always want to be oriented toward families and have a place were kids can run and play. I'm sure your kids made great use of our tree swings while they were here. As for our online reservation system, we are sorry there were a few glitches. We recently added this into our... More

This is a great value place in a convenient part of Nairobi (though a bit further from the airport than some, so make sure you leave plenty of time for the journey there (half an hour if there's no trafffic, very early morning or late night, more than 2 hours otherwise!). Wonderful gardens, very peaceful, decent food though not very... More

We have been living in Tanzania for 14 years. We travel to Nairobi a few times a year. There are other places we have stayed, but there are several things that keep us coming back to Mennonite. They have the best gardens and ambiance. The staff has always been professional. They make every effort to accommodate special needs. Advantage of... More

I spent just one night at the Mennnonite Guest House as I flew in late from Europe and had a meeting in Westlands the next morning. I was really impressed with the place - my booking was handled efficiently by email, the key was left as promised with the watchman, the room was simple but spotless and everything worked. The...

Having read reviews on Mennonite Guesthouse we were slightly dubious about our four night upcoming booking with them, but from the moment we arrived, we noticed that the managers comments on tripadvisor about the improvements and changes he was going to make to the guesthouse were either complete or underway. At times the place feels a bit boarding school like... More

If you understand guest houses in Kenya then you understand that this not luxury. The property has kept up garden and grounds and all basic amenities. The service is good given a guest house. Our room had a bathroom in it and a balcony that overlooks the property. The basketball/tennis court was run down and I would not expect it... More

Beautiful hotel and safe location. Very clean and modern. Basketball court and yard with lots of space making it great for families. Meals served for a small price making it convenient for those passing through. The only complaint I had was that they weren't accommodating for late check outs or early check ins.
