The personnal is very professional, friendly and helpful. They do the best for you. I had a room with a private terrasse with view on the garden. The area is very... More

Starting from the booking, all went very smooth with this guest house. The hotel arranged an airport pick up at reasonable price. Staff met me and my colleague very friendly. Although, the first impression of the room upon arrival was a bit different from what was expected out of the photos, a further stay turned out quite positive. The rooms... More

Gigiri Homestead is an excellent guest house in a good location - especially if you want to be close to the UN, embassies and Village Market. The staff are very friendly, the breakfast and evening meals are good and the rooms are comfortable. The wifi is also stable and reliable, which is a bonus! Overall highly recommended

From the day we arrived, Gigiri Homestead staff proved to be highly capable hosts during our enjoyable stay in Kenya! They provided their well-kept rooms at a reasonable cost, and were able to help us coordinate our regular contacts with our local transport services. I found the firm mattresses and mosquito netting quite a lovely final destination after a long... More

A quiet secure part of the city with a wonderful staff. Walking distance from a mall (Village Market), where you can get everything that you need + ATM-machines. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in a small -cosy- dining room beside the kitchen, large portions. I was in one of the rooms one stairway up, a room with a balcony,... More

We were here for a conference and Gigiri homestead was a perfect place to stay while in Nairobi. Calm and safe area. Great homecooked food in the restaurant. You have to order a head but it was no problem. Very nice and friendly staff!

The Gigiri Homesead is well-located 10-15 minutes walk from the UN and 5 minutes from the Village Market. Also on the plus side, the personnel were very helpful and friendly, my room was comfortable and the breakfast was good, especially the coffee (Kenyan of course). The decor was fine too and the house was clean. However there were a couple... More

I have stayed at Gigiri Homestead on six different occasions when in Nairobi. It is always clean. The staff is attentive and food excellent- especially awaking to their great pancakes and a good cup of coffee. Whenever I needed information on the area, they were responsive. An excellent value of the cost with a staff that goes out of their... More

I stayed two nights at Gigiri Homestead while on business at the nearby UN Compound at Gigiri. A torch is useful for the occasional power cut (I had one which fortunately did not last long; and the torch is useful if you walk out at night (see below). The Homestead itself is well-guarded and secure and in a suburb of... More
