“Such a lovely place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

I stayed 3 weeks in Ndemi Place with my colleagues. With the wonderful garden, the nice and skilled staff, Ndemi is a peaceful haven in the heart of Nairobi. The charm of Kenya gives life to it.

Excellent value for money in comparison with the hostels in Nairobi. Do not hesitate to choose Ndemi, both for tourism and business.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Ndemi Place, or as I call it "Ndemi Palace" for a week + in late February/early March. I was traveling with a film crew and we were producing a documentary film in Kenya. Needless to say our days were long and frenzied. It was a treat to come home to beautiful Chichi and her incredible staff. Chichi knows everything about Nairobi and can point you in the direction of good food or things to do. Every morning we would look forward to Chef Cosmos' breakfast and await the time when we could sink into a delicious candlelight dinner of his making. Thomas would light us a fire and we could relax in peace away from the noisy traffic of Nairobi. The rooms are comfortable and the grounds are beyond peaceful. It is truly an oasis in Nairobi. I will never stay anywhere else in the city.

Thank you Chichi and Ndemi Palace!

Nice and safe place to stay. Nice garden to relax in.
Meals are on request, which are really good! I was sick when I stayed here and the cook wanted me te eat something so he made me a really great soup.
Staff is a bit distant, but friendly.
Rooms are noisy. Breakfast is ok.
Fast & free internet!
