Spent a night there but regretted the rooms are so small and was given a room with a broken cistern and could not be able to flush the toilet. Though the staff are friendly and there food also was not bad. Should at least repair the broken items in the rooms.

Big room, nice breakfast buffet, good wifi at 4000 kshs, perfect location if you need to travel by bus. Bit noisy, so ask for a room in the back. Doubting whether I'll give it 3 or 4 stars. 3.5 seems most appropriate. Tripadvisor insists on me writing 200 characters ... If yur really on a tight budget, try Niam hotel... More

Rooms were good with tv, warm water, quiet and wifi only available at 1st floor and its not fast. Staff were friendly and breakfast was ordinary. Location not very secure for walking at night snd its got very high human traffic during the day. Bus companies are just in the vicinity for travel to Kampala, Dar es Salam, Kigali,etc.

haven't tried the accommodation, but saw the place. It looks like a good choice if you wanna stay in the center of Nairobi. What will bring me back to Kipepeo is definitely their chicken curry ;) Management is really customer driven and very friendly.

The hotel is located in the middle of the city, no lot of space outside, but generally ok. The hotel standard is fair for the value of money.. i was right outside the hotel where there is a bus terminal, arrived from Tanzania, did not know anywhere in Nairobi and was a bit late, so, i just thought let me...

For a budget trip, Kipepeo is fine with very friendly front desk..nice room service..laundry. It is located right in the City Centre (excellent) but it could get very noisy outside yet fun for those who enjoy the night life.The room I stayed in was very small and it had mosquitoes but they had mosquito nets and would disinfect on request....

I splashed out on Kipepeo at the end of my last trip to Nairobi, where I usually stay at a budget place closeby. Kipepeo is solidly in the 3 star bracket with clean and nicely decorated rooms. Rooms and bathrooms are a bit on the small side but in line with room sizes elsewhere in downtown. Staff were helpful and... More
