This hotel is just one fine experience, with great food, service and a wonderful location with fine rooms and great food three times a day. Violet is a big sweetheart and she will serve her most delicious dishes and deserts. The big garden in the backyard is a real asset amidst a secure area in one of the finest places... More

I have never reviewed anything on TripAdvisor, but our stay at Gigiri Homestead really compelled me to do so. Right from the first minute at the homestead, we felt at home due to the warm welcome received. We particularly loved the serenity of the place, as well as the helpfulness of all staff. Pick the Master Ensuite! It is simply... More

Stayed here in January 2014 for a week and returned for 2 nights in April 2014. The property is beautiful, the rooms nicely furnished and clean, and the service friendly and warm. Very quiet and peaceful place and good breakfast served. UN complex and Village Market (for Maasai Market) within walking distance of the homestead. Dinners served were good too... More

I originally went to this guesthouse because I go to work at the UN and the traffic had got too bad to stay in town, but I'm so glad I did. It's really cosy and safe, in a quiet, secure area which is walking distance from Village Market and UN Gigiri, and the food and cleanliness are second to none.... More

I stayed at Gigiri Homestead for a week in Nairobi while travelling there for a non-profit, and it was one of the highlights of my trip. The homestead itself has a wonderful bright, cottage feel, the garden is beautiful and peaceful. The area is very safe, secure and close to the Village Market for food, supplies and shopping. Bedrooms and... More

A nice, safe and quiet place in Gigiri within a walking distance to the UN and Village Market. The staff is very friendly and helpful, all do their best to make you feel at home. Some furniture in the room is a bit decrepit, but everything is very clean and kept in good order. Bed linen is changed every 3... More

I stay in Gigiri Homestead every time I travel through Nairobi (every 2-3 months). And it feels like coming home. Place is quiet, located very close to UN compound and Village Market. It feels safe just to walk to both these places. Rooms are nice – simple, but comfortable. The whole accommodation – rooms, bathrooms, lounge, garden are very clean.... More

Nice fish dish, comfortable, relaxed and safe. I did like the Kenyan breakfast. Could be a little bit more clear with the customers with regards to the food. I would like to have seen some more African food and perhaps next time I will try these and the famous curries.
