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

Ndemi Place is a lovely and affordable place to stay while in Nairobi. The staff are remarkably friendly and helpful. The house itself is set in a lush garden and the area is peaceful and quiet. The rooms at Ndemi are simple but very comfortable. (Although sound travels in the house and can get noisy with many people) Moses, was... More

Arrived late in the night on a Sunday. The place is located in a quiet residential area. Expect a fairly long commute from the airport to the hotel. The traffic can be very bad. The good - the setting is actually quite nice, the area is quiet, and the staff is friendly. The transportation they connect you with, Lazarus, is... More

We stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it. Had family visiting Kenya or the first time from the US. The staff was overly friendly, accomodating and all around nice people. The chef was awesome and made us an awesome meal. We also enjoyed the mandazis and samosas with the high tea. I would recommend this to staying at... More

The 11/3/12 review has it right. This is a once elegant colonial villa, now somewhat down at the heels. It could use a major re-wiring and re-plumbing, but then it would cost four times as much to stay here. The staff at Ndemi Place was very friendly and responsive to our needs. We made email reservations (for 5/1/13 to 9/1/13)... More

It is what you expect. We didn't expect too much and were well aware that other hotels in Nairobi charge double or more (here 60USD per single / 100USD double). So with this in mind we found a beautiful and peaceful garden villa. We really enjoyed our stay there.

We truly enjoyed our experience at Ndemi Place. During our stay we learned that it is the home of a former Kenyan ambassador. The house is quaint, comfortable and very peaceful. Staying there you will feel as though you are a guest in someone's home -- because you are. There is a small but very accommodating staff led by Ms.... More

This is a basic, possibly overpriced (at $100 per night), hotel very far from the impression given by many reviews. It is, indeed, wonderfully situated in pleasant gardens and the house has some sense of the colonial past, but it is now looking rather tired. The rooms vary a lot and don't all match the pictures. We rejected the first... More
