Ndemi place is perfect when you're seeking to escape the busy streets of Nairobi with delicious authentic food, excellent service, and clean large rooms with both wifi and hot water. I would rather return to this lovely place than staying at a hotel!

We needed a place to spend the night before our transfer to Amboseli and Ndemi Place was recommended to us by our TO. Lovely little place, not too far from NBO and set in pretty gardens. We thought the price was a little high for what it was, but the service was great and the room was clean.

Feels just like home with comfortable rooms and well furnished sitting areas. The staff are friendly and always have a smile on their faces. It's located in a safe, quiet neighbourhood which...

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 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.
