This cozy place has a good location with a quiet, garden setting. Modest but comfy rooms with en suite facilities at a very fair price, which includes breakfast. The service was great and they were happy to provide french press coffee in the afternoon. Convenient to Adams Place, Greenhouse and several restaurants.

Ndemi Place is very well located walking distance from Adams Arcade. I love the peaceful grounds. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is lovely. Highly recommend for a place that is a step-up from a hostile but still extremely reasonably priced.

After trying out a few different places in Nairobi, I find that Ndemi place provides the best value. They have great service, it's quiet and this is quite hard to find in the city at this price point and it's located in a nice part of Nairobi. I travel to Nairobi for work, this place meets all my needs, I... More

Stayed here for one night with a group of friends in August 2014. We arrived here after a safari in Masai Mara for one night before we flew out of Nairobi. Our guide found the street the hotel was on and we spotted the sign. As usual there was gated 24 hour security as is standard for Nairobi. Check-in was... More

Its location is very strategic and it is easy to go around and find places to eat that is economical. There is also a carfour nearby that is within walking distance that is convenient for groceries. The staff is friendly and helpful and most importantly, the toilet is quite clean!!

Good value for Nairobi and Viola is an absolute gem and will do anything to help. We had some issue on the journey in with some Police looking for a bribe but Viola was able to deal with this instantly. The breakfast was simple and tasty and in the evening a snack was arranged late and football placed on the... More

Visited this in August for one night after making an email reservation. For the cost, I think things are at par with what you get. Very old bedsheets, pillows, towels and entire interior. Cold bathrooms. The water sprays from the overhead showerhead in pin streams so thin you cant shower fully in under 30 minutes. Average breakfast and during my... More

This was the perfect place for our last night in Nairobi. After 5 days in the National Parks it was a great relief to relax in such a peaceful setting. The garden is fab and we managed to get the lovely big room with walk-in wardrobe, equipped with shower and bed, safes (although it was locked when we arrived) and... More

This place is a good, basic and small location that is appropriate for no frills travelers who want a safe and quiet place to recover from the day's activities. Breakfast can be arranged and is fine. Location is central enough to allow for day trips without any hassle, and in a few minutes of most places in the city you... More

We stayed at Ndemi place for two nights while in Nairobi. The room was large, bathroom was standard by Kenyan standards, and the breakfast was fantastic. Its not a large facility by any means, but very comfortable. We used Ndemi place as a launching point for our safaris, and it worked out nicely. The room did have a mosquito net.... More
