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

Doesn't have a restaurant, but you can request what you want for breakfast. The double room bed was really wide (not too long though). Does have a bathtub but there isn't enough hot water to actually have a bath, the hot water heater is in the shower head, and only works with low flow rates. You can manage a shower... More

We spent 4 days at Nedmi Place and we really enjoyed it. The rooms were large and spacious and we had a comfortable bed. The staff were amazing! They were always willing to help us out with anything we needed whether it be getting meals or exchanging money. They were always friendly and never made us feel like we were... More

I stayed here for two nights before going on safari. I'm not going to lie and claim Ndemi is a five star luxury resort. But if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, inexpensive, quiet place to cool your jets (or recover from jet lag, as I did) before heading out on your African adventure this is a great place...

Ndemi Place is a remarkably quiet and clean place where you can really feel at home, assuming you don't require much luxury. The facilities and service are significantly better than other places I've stayed in Nairobi at similar price points, and the location is quite convenient if Kilimani is where you need to be. The staff are very responsive, helpful,... More

Staff is friendly and helpful. Place not so easy to find for taxidriver. Not recommendable as stop-over from/to airport. Rooms are dark and old. Don't take the one next to the kitchen, noice will wake you up. 65US$ are definitly too much for this quality.

I stayed here for a few nights mainly for business. The staff are very friendly and helpful (when they are available) and the room facility was fairly basic but functional. One benefit was the free wi-fi that was available and the guest house is in quiet location which is fairly accessible to most places in the city. Ideal for a... More

Ndemi Place is HOME away from home - and this is largely thanks to the extremely friendly staff of Ndemi ("Asante to Catherine, Bernard, Moses, Viola & the team). Possibly, THE BEST customer service you can get in Kenya. I stayed there 4 times in Sept/Oct 2013: every time I was returning to Ndemi (from Eldoret, Mombasa, etc.), I truly... More

I'm currently staying at Ndemi Place. So far the service has been great. The manager's name is Moses and he is extremely helpful. Any services you require, he organizes without any fuss. Today he walked us to a local bank to transfer money and has also organized meal delivery from a local restaurant.   The room we have is simple,... More
