Our travel agent with African Springs Safaris had highly recommended the Emakoko Hotel to us, and she was not wrong! We spent two wonderful nights in one of the top floor rooms (well worth the hundred plus steps for the view!!) This is a small boutique hotel that offers outstanding food and service with a personal touch. It was the perfect ending to our two-week stay in Kenya. The rooms are all lovely, with large, comfortable beds and huge bathrooms. The staff was perfect from greeters, to chefs, to our driver Sylvester. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We loved eating our meals on the open-air terrace, and dining by candlelight. (Did i mention the food? Outstanding!!) It is hard to believe you are just 45 minutes from the airport, when you are on the edge of Nairobi National Park in all its beauty. The owners of Emakoko are a lovely young couple who live on the property and mix comfortably with all of the guests. I can't say enough about this beautiful property and the area around it - do yourself a favor and book at the Emakoko!!
