a great location with huge, beautiful gardens... the staff was pleasant, and the rooms in which we stayed during the first half of our stay were beautiful. But avoid at all cost the rooms ( 9-10-11) that are not next to the tennis court : they are dark, a bit shabby, and most of all there is a very noisy water pump situated somewhere above the ceiling, which caused us a couple of sleepless nights. Breakfast and food in general were good but a bit bland sometimes, which I guess makes sense in a place designed for work, study, and worship...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amani Gardens Inn, formerly the Mennonite Guest House has a 50-year reputation of warm hospitality and quiet gardens. Located in Westlands, our guest house is situated conveniently close to major shopping malls, banking centers, and restaurants, yet the place still retains the feel of a retreat in the countryside with our old English-style buildings and ancient trees. You can spend the morning quietly reading under a 100-year old jacaranda tree, or hop in a taxi and be exploring down town a few minutes later. Amani means peace in Swahili which is a distinctive of the Mennonites. We hope you will find our gardens a peaceful oasis in the middle of a bustling city. Amani means peace in Kiswahili. Spacious gardens, friendly staff, and traditional American food bring our guests back again and again. Amani Gardens is under the Mennonite Board of East Africa. ... more less
