I was staying in the Ndemi Place Guest House for 5 days. It was my official trip. Prporty rates are very expensive in Nairobi. I was lucky to get this hotel. It is a wonderful guest house to stay as a budget hotel. They also provide complimentry breakfast. Staffs are very helpful especially Violla. She is a wonderful host. I... More

I regularly travel through Nairobi, and if I need to stay overnight this is my first choice! A lovely peaceful hotel with lovely gardens, and very friendly and accommodating staff who can not do enough to help. With free wifi, and desks in the rooms it is great place to work from or to just relax in! Thoroughly recommend this... More

Very friendly and willing staff. Nice colonial-era house and garden. Great location...but expensive for quality: Positives: staff; location; garden; service; great wifi coverage Negatives: dated and basic; noisy staff waking guests; price; dim rooms If they could updated the decor, bedding,lighting etc. would be great. Very good people.

My friend and I stayed here recently (for 9 nights) and had a wonderful experience. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We felt truly at home and were sad to leave. Thank you for great food, geat service, beautiful environment and lovely people. We will be telling everyone about Ndemi!

My dad and I stayed here for two nights during a two-week stay in Kenya and very much enjoyed it. It was clean and comfortable and felt very safe. We loved reading our books in the backyard and watching the monkeys! Plan ahead if you need an early breakfast though; they won't serve earlier than their listed hours, even under... More

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
