“Terrific place - warm welcome, spotless, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2011

It was a real delight to stay at Elia Bed and Beakfast, made especially good by the friendly and brilliantly effective host, Annabel, who makes sure her guests have everything they need. The location on Kilimani Road is about perfect for anyone keen to keep out of central Nairobi, but aside from rush hour it is easily accessible by car/cab from town, and there are several good restaurants nearby. With Annabel's help I got to all my meetings on time in different parts of town. The rooms are really comfortable, and the shared business centre/study a real bonus, especially as Internet dongles are provided, and really work well. It's not a big expensive hotel, and that's why I liked it so much. A perfect place to stay in Nairobi, and great value for money.

Elia's Bed and Breakfast was a delightful find. It is bright, cheerful, immaculate, and comfortable. The breakfast was complete with eggs/omelets made to order. Although it was not a problem for us, the B&B was on the third (4th?) floor with no elevator; the staff, however, were right there to carry luggage upstairs. Bedroom was spacious and comfortable; fresh, cold juice and water was provided on our arrival. There is a large, pleasant room where one can exercise, listen to music, or do business tasks. It is beautifully and colorfully decorated, extremely clean, and within walking distance to a shopping center. Annabel, the manager (owner?) is personable, friendly, and helpful! Our cab driver had a bit of difficulty finding the place at night, so make sure you have specific directions. Great place to stay!

I travel to Nairobi frequently for work and always have had a hard time finding good accommodation for a reasonable price. On my last trip I happened to stay here and now I know I won't ever have to hunt around again! This is by far the best B&B experience I've had in Kenya - comfortable, clean, good location, and a great home-like atmosphere. Annabel will take great care of you - everything from breakfast to laundry to help arranging a weekend safari. Highly recommended!

What a fabulous place! Our group of ten people from Puerto Rico has found this apartment feel like home. Thanks to Brenda for all the good breakfast, great company and clean rooms. Thanks to Annabel for her kindness and for her efforts to bring jobs to single mothers in Nairobi. The apartment in Ngong View is fantastic!
The transportation arrangements offered are a great value and worth every penny. Annabel is a savvy business person and a great human being. Forget booking an expensive hotel in Nairobi! This place has everything you need. Either cook for yourself or get an in house cook. The Ngong View apartment is within walking distance to at least 2 good supermarkets, a food court and ATMs.

During my stay I initially checked in at a hotel, but it was crazy expensive (which Nairobi is, but I think it's ridiculous). I contacted Annabel and she instantly let me know that a room was available and I could have it at app. 50 USD per night. I therefore went from a 250 USD room to a 50 USD room per night and the best thing is that I got the exact same value and for my taste even better. ELIS B&B offers spacious clean room, private bathroom, workspace, free internet and breakfast. Apart from the basic services, staying at ELIA B&B offers something, which no hotels can offer. The homely atmosphere and the opportunity to speak to Annabel who's very knowledgeable on how to get around in Nairobi and Brenda, the house maid, which will make sure that your room is tidied and your shirts are ironed.

I stayed at ELIA Homes and Apartments for 12 days during my latest business travels to Nairobi. It is a wonderful guesthouse with a good atmosphere and an inspiring host, Annabel, who knows everything about SMEs in Kenya. Annabel is also a very good cook and helpful in arranging weekend trips –we went on a free animal count in Nairobi park. Rooms are large, clean, and quite and the location is safe and an central.
