This was my third visit to Nairobi and I thought of trying out the Gigiri Homestead which is on the UN's approved list of local guesthouses.I was not disappointed.The ease of communication when booking and the friendly welcome was reassuring after a long journey from New York.The room was clean and comfortably furnished with good wifi connection.Any requests were dealt with promptly, and I mean promptly ie. immediately and not several minutes as with many posh hotels which have to go through several links in the chain.I reported a problem with the water pressure in the shower and within literally 30 seconds they were on the phone to the plumber.Problem solved.
All the staff without exception were courteous and helpful, always ready to help and with a smile.I will have no hesitation in recommending the homestead for it's service and proximity to the main UN compound.
