This place is a hidden gem! To clear something up ..River Road where Kipepeo is located has a reputation for being one of Nairobi ' s ' mean street's'. Our experience was that this was more urban myth than reality. We were coming and going at all times of the day and night and had NO problems at all. The... More

If one has style, one simply has to love the Kipepeo hotel-restaurant. True, it has its flaws (loud noise neighborhood), but compared with the other sticky places of its price, this one offers you the best you can get over there (for that price). Wonderful rooms. Superb television quality. Nice temperatured waters in the showers. Good food. A jazz band... More

A hotel down town, very noisy with traffic and all kind of manner that will make sure you have a terrible night sleep. During the day the place is busiest in Nairobi and security is very questionable. We were terrified and we had to check out and seek for another hotel. One good thing is there rates.

I went to Nairobi on a business trip on June 2015. Location wise the hotel is good but for long stay it is not advisable. The restaurant is not clean, the room is clean but never get the room at the mezanine because of the disturbance at the bar. Boring experience.

I stayed in this hotel for 7 days While attending a business workshop at K.I.C.C. Rooms are clean, staff are friendly, delicious food,good security and the price is ok. I liked the location of the hotel since it is only 5 min walk from K.I.C.C. Generally i can say the hotel good.

We stayed here for only a night and would never stay again. We check-in our room and found the bathroom light was not working. I called the reception to repair it for 3 times but no one showed up despite the lady on the other end promising someone would come. At times no one picked the phone and I had... More

Good security and very nice staff at the lobby, in the restaurant and around the hotel. I slept in two different rooms. Breakfast was ok for a daystart. In general rooms were ok, with tv... More
