I stayed for a week at Eden Gardens in Nairobi together with my wife and it was a very pleasant experience. Eden Gardens is located in the upscale area of Lavington and it is very nice to walk around in the area. It is very green and peaceful here with several nice restaurants around.

Me and my husband stayed in Eden for totally 2 weeks and for one of the weeks we had company from friends and family from Norway. I... More

The price is VERY affordable and it is located in ht posh part of town but not far away from places I wanted to visit. In summary, when next I or... More

Eden Gardens was a refferal through a common friend of myself and Endre, I was not the least bit dissapointed and could not believe my luck to discover Eden gardens, a beautiful, intimate, exquisite and cosy guest house with lots of greenery, a river flowing through the compound and a swimming pool all in an upmarket and tranquil location.

Eden Gardens is run by an enthusiastic staff who are both easy-going and flexible. This is by far the value add of this homey, informal little place. The accommodation is of a good quality for this price range. It's in a good area and it's centrally located (equidistant to everywhere, but out of the hustle and bustle of the city... More

After searching for days and days for a place to stay at the right price, I was constantly given "bait and switch" and 3 day-delays on emails from numerous affordable places in Nairobi. HOWEVER, as I was flying out from the States I emailed Endre, the owner of Eden Gardens, and he responded within an hour! And his rates were... More

Hello Robert! Thanks for your very nice review. We are happy that you enjoyed the time with us here at Eden Gardens. We just wanted to clarify that most of our rooms have their own bathroom. There are only two rooms that share one bathroom. Anyways, thanks again, and you are always welcome back! More

We stayed for five days at Eden Gardens in December/January, and we were quite captured by the idylle of this little family run hotel. A friendly, intimate atmosphere, and lovely, green surroundings. Absolutely to be recommended as an affordable alternative to the more impersonal chain hotels.We also loved the peaceful surroundings opening for evening and morning walks.
