I had such a comfortable stay, the buffet was good!! All their prices are fare, both for food and drinks at their rooftop bar. The room service is quick and excellent, the rooms are neat and cozy, and always clean. The staff employees are some of the best that I’ve met.

The Emory is a pocket friendly clean hotel, ideally located in a quiet part of Kileleshwa. Rooms are above average and service was excellent. The 7th floor bar offers wonderful views and is an enjoyable place to spend an evening. Would recommend.

I checked in for my R&R, and from the sales staff (Jackie) to the manager, and staff from the restaurant to the lounge, the team is an encapsulation of hospitality at its top. The food is great, fruits fresh for breakfast, and considerably higher standards of cleanliness and covid preparedness. My room was nice and clean on 6th floor, with water, AC, great internet for video calls and comfortable bed. Only con was the TV missing channels so only option was YouTube. I would stay here again and again, checked out their conference facilities and they are amazing! Also IT staff on hand for all connectivity issues. This is an awesome venue for your work and leisure needs. Highly recommend it. Thank you Emory team, and for your pursuit of gender diversity, an extra +.

I take the chance to first congratulate such a boutique hotel on the standards they have set on a holistic level. THIS IS AN EXCELENT AND TOP-NOTCH HOTEL! I want to thank the team in general for the great work and service. I had a birthday surprise planned for hubby and the valentine package and let me just say we were loyalties. Sandra the sales manager, was a gem...I had everything discreetly planned and she never got tired with assisting me plan out and even get some things laid out in the room as directed and it was PERFECTION! I want to thank Grace for also being so caring and always serving us with a warm reception. She was a gem even in the planning of the surprise birthday the dinner table reservation and she got into the nitty gritties too! I also would thank Simon and Anthony at the Mustang Lounge. PS: The rooftop bar is magnificent and the bitings, drinks and service is exceptional.TRY IT! I would also like to thank Vivian at the restaurant, Festus and the breakfast chef Alice who made sure our breakfast was delicious, served hot, and was endless lol. This was definitely worth every penny spent and more. The whole valentine and birthday package for hubby was a marvel and i'll definitely be getting back

After a long flight , being checked in by Lucy was very efficient and relaxing . She's always ready to help and assisted me with alot of requests. The staff here are amazing !!!! Sandra is a star and always willing to go the extra mile to provide the client with best customer experience, she is very genuine and sometimes go out of her way to make sure you have a good time . She assisted me with safari tour, recommended going to carnivore restaurant and more . You can see Grace's smile through her mask and is very positive and makes you feel at home , this hotel has alot of character. Louis is very professional and always attentive to the client and probably should be a comedian too. Restaurant staff Susan and Vivian again always had a smile and ever so friendly. The housekeeping done a great job with cleaning the room and was done at an excellent standard. The hotel itself is great and is comfortable , the mattress is very nice and I had a wonderful time being here. Would defo recommend and would come again .

The Mrs. and I took the opportunity to have a night to ourselves away from the kids. The reception was as we expected... Temperature taken and hands sanitized before we were allowed entry. Due to the low numbers, we had no issue with parking. Hotel was a buzz due to a video shoot that morning. The following morning however was a different story, and showing how hit the hospitality industry is due to COVID-19. The room was okay. Clean and well maintained. I would recommend you have a menu in the room if you have room delivery. The cable wasn't working. Understandbly so due to costs. However, we would have appreciated notice of this. The night's rest was okay. We would have preferred a harder mattress. Not sure if there is a provision for this. Breakfast the following morning was delicious. The Mrs loved the freshly squeezed orange juice. We did enjoy our stay-cation Kudos to the team. We shall return. 🙏

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and enjoyed it. Rooms are clean and if decent size, the staff is very friendly and food is good as well - breakfast, dinner and room service. The only two negative things to point out is that room service takes very long and there are very few hair dryers. You have to ask for them at the reception and they will bring it. But sometimes there are none around so you may have bad luck.

The hotel is absolutely comparable with good European standards. The rooms are modern and clean. The service is already very good at the reception and applies to all other areas as well. The food is good, even if the menu is a little limited for longer stays.
