We stayed there beginning of this month. Was just a fantastic experience. Pure bliss. The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful always serving you with a smile. The rooms are very cosy and modern but still homely. The amenities are very clean. Food preparation and presentation is exquisite. I would live here any day. The only down side... More

I have been there now twice, once a post wedding photoshoot for a close friend and on a separate occassion for a dinner with about 10 of my buddies. Tucked away in the leafy Runda suburb, this little heaven is a sight to behold, from the nice little spaces, swimming pool, green grass...to the hospitality of the employees, led by... More

Bedelle is some rich guy's villa converted to hotel use. There are only 7 rooms - 2 in a guest house adjacent, the rest are in the main house. The ambiance is old school wealthy. The main house rooms are vastly superior to the guest house rooms, and are definitely worth the $20 price difference. The property which has a... More

I stayed at the Bedelle in May 2014 for 6 days while on a business trip to Nairobi. We found the Bedelle through an internet search and decided to try something different from the standard downtown hotels since we needed to be near Gigiri. What a great idea. The atmosphere at the Bedelle is one of relaxation and comfort, highly... More

I stayed at the Bedelle during a week long business trip to Nairobi. It combines the relaxing sense of being a home from home with an ambiance of luxury and attentive service. It was an oasis of calm at the end of the day and a great place to unwind if you find yourself there at the weekend. It is... More

After a number of visits to Kenya which included stays in Nairobi I was booked it to the Bedelle. I wasn't sure what I was in for. After staying in the usual big hotels this was a pleasant surprise. Not many rooms (7 I think) meant that it was a quiet, homely atmosphere. The ambience, the furnishings, the garden and... More

The Bedelle is the bast that could happen to me during a very demanding business trip to Nairobi. Nice, clean, neat, charming interior and absolutely amazing hospitality. They fulfill all customer wishes, rooms are spacious, beds extremely comfortable. Great value for the money as well. There was no problem that Chef come earlier and prepare early breakfast for us before... More

The hotel and room were nice and the staff were friendly. The food was average, and we had problems with dining room service (the soup never arrived, the parts of the order that arrived were mixed up, leisurely service). What really spoiled our stay, though, was the lively chicken coop under our window. The roosters got started around 1:00 in... More

We just spent a couple of nights in a wonderful, elegant, cozy, boutique hotel in a lush environment. From the staff to the food to the overall ambiance, this was first rate! Check out their website; it is most definitely what it seems. As long time residents of Africa, this is without a doubt our hotel of choice in Nairobi!
