I stayed at the hotel during a business retreat of 3 days. The surroundings are beautiful and the service impeccable. The rooms are well decorated with an "out of africa" upmarket look. The food was delicious and the desserts yummy. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the mosquitoes. There was an invasion during my stay! they were all... More

The hotel is very nice. It is in Karen away from most of the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. The rooms are very well appointed and very nice, however I don't think they're worth what is being charged. The restaurants are ok. The brasserie chef sadly does not know what he's doing when it comes to steaks. I'm sorry, but... More

I was lucky enough to stay here during a business trip recently. This hotel is fabulous. My suite was amazing, with a canopied bed, a desk, sofa, TV and great drinks cabinet. The in-room tea and coffee has a great selection and even had fresh milk provided in the minibar to have with it. The bathroom was wonderful, with two... More

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Everything was first-class - service, butler, food, room and all amenities. A first class hotel comes with a price but it's worth it. It is set amidst acres of grounds and very peaceful. It is in Karen district so about 30 mins from Nairobi centre. It's close to David Sheldrick... More

Excellent hotel in picturesque grounds. All rooms have balcony over looking the garden. Suite superbly equipped and lacking for nothing. Restaurant very good if slightly limited menu. Wi-fi actually works and TV reception and choice of channels also very good. Bathroom also very well equipped and laid out. A luxurious place to relax on business or pleasure. Staff friendly and...

We're regulars at Hemingways and went again on Sunday for a birthday celebration, the food is excellent, the ambiance is super. The only thing they must do is serve the food more quickly once it gets to you, nice to have personal service but it takes time to get all the bits in front of you when you're 5 diners.

I had the pleasure of dining with my husband at Hemingways on his birthday. The service was excellent and the food was great. Hemingways were even kind enough to offer my husband a complimentary chocolate cake to spice up the evening. Thanks to all who made it happen. It's a pity it was raining heavily so we didn't get a...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hemingways for a practically one month while volunteering. The hotel is simply gorgeous and the balcony views are magical. The staff at Hemingways is by far the best service I have ever experienced (and I travel a ton). The staff became my second family and literally made me feel every day like... More

The grounds are truly beautiful and stunning. The rooms are amazing. Best of all is the amazing service from the staff at the hotel. Couldn't think of a more relaxing place in Nairobi at the moment. Truly spectacular. David
