We booked a two bedroomed apartment and bird watching safari with Annabel Onyando after reading positive reviews of her services. Our apartment was not booked and she sent us to a YWCA in Nairobi. After confronting her and paying yet more money we did, the next day arrive at our apartment which was at Tropical Towers, it was lovely. The... More

The positive previous reviews sounded promising and encouraged me to book at Elia B&B. However, this B&B has a lot of problems, the main one that is not open. I was looking forward to meet this terrific host Annabel who turned out to be a con woman. When I arrived I had to wait for more than an hour for... More

After a stay in Kampala, Nairobi was next on the trip. What a gem of a B&B, Lovely location, lovely host and at what a rate, much cheaper than the pricey hotels that Nairobi is known for. Annabel tried her best to make sure all is OK during my stay, and I have to say she is quite the host.... More

It was a real delight to stay at Elia Bed and Beakfast, made especially good by the friendly and brilliantly effective host, Annabel, who makes sure her guests have everything they need. The location on Kilimani Road is about perfect for anyone keen to keep out of central Nairobi, but aside from rush hour it is easily accessible by car/cab... More

Elia's Bed and Breakfast was a delightful find. It is bright, cheerful, immaculate, and comfortable. The breakfast was complete with eggs/omelets made to order. Although it was not a problem for us, the B&B was on the third (4th?) floor with no elevator; the staff, however, were right there to carry luggage upstairs. Bedroom was spacious and comfortable; fresh, cold... More

I travel to Nairobi frequently for work and always have had a hard time finding good accommodation for a reasonable price. On my last trip I happened to stay here and now I know I won't ever have to hunt around again! This is by far the best B&B experience I've had in Kenya - comfortable, clean, good location, and...

What a fabulous place! Our group of ten people from Puerto Rico has found this apartment feel like home. Thanks to Brenda for all the good breakfast, great company and clean rooms. Thanks to Annabel for her kindness and for her efforts to bring jobs to single mothers in Nairobi. The apartment in Ngong View is fantastic! The transportation arrangements... More

During my stay I initially checked in at a hotel, but it was crazy expensive (which Nairobi is, but I think it's ridiculous). I contacted Annabel and she instantly let me know that a room was available and I could have it at app. 50 USD per night. I therefore went from a 250 USD room to a 50 USD... More

I stayed at ELIA Homes and Apartments for 12 days during my latest business travels to Nairobi. It is a wonderful guesthouse with a good atmosphere and an inspiring host, Annabel, who knows everything about SMEs in Kenya. Annabel is also a very good cook and helpful in arranging weekend trips –we went on a free animal count in Nairobi... More
