We recently stayed at the Hibiscus prior to a safari in Kenya. We arrived late at night from the airport with transport provided by the Guest House at a reasonable price. Despite the late hour we were greeted by a smiling, cheerful and welcome gent named James. Our bags were placed in our room while we registered. Our room was immaculate with clean sheets, firm bed, and ensuite bath for $55 per night. We awoke to an included hearty breakfast of cereal, toast, eggs, sausage, tea and fresh mango juice. While the eggs were cooked to death, the spicy sauce brought them back to life. The guest house is a quiet oasis that is not the most convenient location but the hotel will arrange a taxi but depending on your negotiating skills you can find a taxi in the street much cheaper. The only down side was a group of noisy young kids coming in late that made me somewhat ashamed of my American compatriots.
We had booked the room for three nights but due to a flight cancellation missed our first night. Despite this we were not charged for three nights; only the two we actually stayed. I did email them to inform them we would be a day late but they were most gracious.
They seem to be religious based but aside from a bible scripture on our door there were no other trappings of religion.
At this price point I don't believe you could do any better in Nairobi.
