The hotel was quite fine. But the fees were not cleary defined, so I paid so much for the service I had. The rooms were clean,with warm water, but the tv didn't work. From rooms I got a lot of smell from the kitchen. My advise is to book the hotel from tripadvisor or other so that you get a... More

My first review was in October of 2014. Since then I've been back repeatedly and now consider this as a "home" in Nairobi. Many of the staff know me by name. My big pluses are the cleanliness - it's always being cleaned - and the desire of the staff to meet your needs. There are lots of "loveable" quirks. I... More

This property is clinically managed, very homely and the rooms well spaced out. One amazing fact is that the staffs are warmly with a high level on inter personal relationship.. It does not matter how many days or weeks you stayed, you will love to come back again.

The rooms were very nice & clean-great shower etc. I would highly recommend this hotel but maybe request a room at the back or on a higher floor as front facing rooms on the... More

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

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.
