Very friendly and helpful staff. En suite room was large and clean. My only complaint was that the garden was disappointing -it lacked character and interest in a country where beautiful flowers grow rapidly.

I had a great stay - lovely friendly staff, some great taxi-drivers! I would recommend that you ask for rooms INSIDE the house - slightly better appointed rooms and fast internet! Thanks, Hibiscus Guesthouse!

Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the Hibiscus is a wonderful home away from home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The wi-fi works, the shower is hot, and the food is delicious. The staff is helpful and accommodating. I was served Chai when I requested it, and my comfort was given every consideration. I have given the guest house 5... More

This is a small guest house in a converted bungalow with 7 or 8 rooms, most of them en-suite. It's just off the Ngong Road and well located for the Kilimani/Hurlingham area, with loads of places to eat in the immediate area - cafes and sushi within 3 mins walk at the Greenhouse mall and the adjacent Adams arcade, the...

Hotel accommodation can be expensive in Nairobi, but Hibiscus Guest House offers a clean, comfortable, less expensive alternative with a wonderful, friendly staff and free WiFi throughout the premises (both in the common spaces and in the bedrooms). The guesthouse is located in Kilimani, which is a little ways from the Central Business District, but it is easy to get... More

I stayed at the Hibiscus Bed and Breakfast in July. It was very cold then, and while most hotels use duvets, the Hibiscus has blankets. The extra blanket provided was soft and warm and also very clean as was all their linen. I enjoyed the space in their rooms and also the peace and quiet in the compound. Hibiscus has... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the guesthouse and very friendly non-stop service of Phyllis and her team. A garden of Eden in the middle of bustling Nairobi. Looking forward to our next visit.

B&B's are my fave places for accommodation, and Hibiscus came highly recommended. Very good service and, for me, most important was that it provided a peaceful environment: garden setting and on a side street away from the bustle of the city. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and the location is a safe brisk walk away from attractions and restaurants.... More

I have stayed at Hibiscus a number of times when needing somewhere for a few days in Nairobi. The staff are lovely and very friendly, the rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Its much nicer than anonymous hotels, and the garden is pleasant to sit in if you need to do some work or reading. Good value given Nairobi... More

I'm not sure why my experience of Hibiscus differs so much from other reviewers. Maybe because we were arriving at 10 pm and leaving at 7am, we were given an unrepresentative room, but room we were given, although large was very scruffy and expensive what the standard provided. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom adequate. Communication was excellent when... More
