Kenya has literally too many wonderful hotels and lodges to count. But if you live in Nairobi, or don't have time to trek out to some tented camp in the bush, there is no better oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city than Hemingways. It is 45 minutes from our house on the other side of town, but... More

This facility is on stunning view of Ngong Hills, impeccably finished, excellent waiter service, good food and ambience to die for. I would recommend this hotel for easy business meeting, stopover for holiday makers and lovers of adventure.

Gorgeous location in Karen (on the outskirts of Nairobi), with outstanding cuisine (the only decent steak in Nairobi), a fabulous spa, amazing rooms. Imagine a suite where a tour of the bathroom is actually justified! They have not overlooked any pampering touch -- such as real milk in the in-room bar for your tea or coffee. That's something I had... More

I stayed here for a week and truly enjoyed the inspiring setting, facilities and ambience. Greeting upon arrival was personal, friendly and very efficient. Size and furnishing of my room (suite) were outstanding and among the most functional, authentic, and atmospheric I have experienced in two years of international travels. The butler assigned to the suites in my part of... More

Hemingways is a very nice hotel in a lovely area. Very safe and gorgeous grounds. The rooms come with a butler who will tend to your every need. There is daily laundry service, which is essential for me. They are timely and organized. The concierge (Margaret?) was extremely friendly, capable and helpful. There are golf carts available for room transportation,... More

I live in Nairobi, and we selected this hotel for a two-day meeting. My room was well-appointed, all the meals and breaks were delicious, the grounds were quiet and lovely, and the service was excellent--attentive but not over-the-top. That said, the prices are on par with the quality--it is not a bargain, but you pay for quality and you get... More

This is the best New Year's Eve celebration we have had in a very long time. Hemmingways needs to be commended for all the effort they made in creating a magnificent dining area for the event; the lights, table decor and room decor were all very tastefully done. The ambience was great and very romantic. We had an eight course... More

We dropped by for afternoon tea. Disappointed not to be able to have high tea (sandwiches, cakes, pastries etc), but did have lovely tea and biscuits along with superb home made ice cream so can't complain. Our server Julius was charming and conscientious. A treat.
