Stayed at the Hemingways for business meetings. The staff are very attentive and well trained. The grounds well kept and the rooms clean and enormous. Check in was smooth. Upon arrival, we were escorted to the suite which is simply gorgeous. A huge bedroom and with sofa, a massive bathroom with a free stranding tub, separate walk in shower, wardrobe... More

It is a big resort and hotel. Food and rooms were excellent. I liked the service and behavior of the staff most. They were very honest and helpful all the time. The sonna and steam bath were complementary. I loved the garden.

This was the second time we've stayed at Hemingways and the hotel was just as beautiful as it was the last time we visited! The rooms are nicely appointed and very spacious, the bathroom is huge and has as nice walk-in closet. The room has a african feeling to it while still carrying all modern amenities in it. One nice... More

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

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.
