I enjoyed my stay along with my Indian colleagues...Very friendly staff. One of my colleagues was vegetarian and the chef was kind enough to tailor make a recipe to suit us. The internet is super fast. It has a home feel and would recommend it for anyone who wants to get away from the noise and clutter of Nairobi. Ideal... More

The staff was great -- very friendly and always happy to assist with any requests. Pretty tasty food, excellent service. Wifi in my room didn't work... It was quite hot and no A/C, only a fan that wasn't very strong. When I was there their credit card machine was down and had to use up all my USD cash, which... More

Ten reasons for choosing the Eden Gardens: 1. Peace of mind - do business not deal with issues 2. Quiet environment - you are in the suburb not downtown 3. Upscale neighborhood - beautiful layout and nice neighbors 4. High security - no security concerns whatsoever 5. Professional staff- cannot improve on Ann, Monique, Grace, Asman, Sheila, or Phoebe 6.... More

Eden Garden has simple rooms, but it has very friendly staff and is situated in a quiet and safe part of Nairobi. Everything you need is near: restaurant (also in Eden Garden), supermarket, bank... The staff also organized well my airport transfer.

I wouldn’t say that Eden Gardens is for a “luxuru seeker” but it is a place that gave me the sence of “being at home” Smiling and warm people, always found a way to make me feel comfortable and relaxed… Wonderful surroundings and a lovely pool…

My family arrived in Nairobi from Ethiopia, so we were hoping for more of an upgrade in living environment. While the customer service was excellent by Alice at the front desk and the Chef who cooked the excellent breakfast, the overall condition of the "hotel" was average at best. The good news is that the price per room is fairly... More

This is my second time to Kenya, deciding to take my daughter to the sights and sounds of safari and the beautiful beaches of Mombasa. However, the start couldnt have been worse. From the surreal landscape of Nairobi airport after it was burned out last week, to the neverending drive to the hut. The locality is at least an hour... More

I had booked a deluxe double room based on the photos of the property. Specifically, I was expecting the red room with the nice looking furniture. When we arrived, we were given the standard room which was too small for two of us to move around in with our luggage. I pulled up my reservation online and asked if we... More

I stayed at Eden Gardens for 6 days in june to hold a certification course on Mikrotik. It is a very good location for trainings of small groups as they have limited rooms and a beautiful garden.
