Staff are nice but manager wasn't around very often and... More

The rooms are not fancy but clean and comfortable. Location is very quiet and the garden is beautiful. Also, Ndemi Place had the best coffee of all places we tried during our two week vacation in Kenya and Tanzania.

Ndemi place is perfect when you're seeking to escape the busy streets of Nairobi with delicious authentic food, excellent service, and clean large rooms with both wifi and hot water. I would rather return to this lovely place than staying at a hotel!

We needed a place to spend the night before our transfer to Amboseli and Ndemi Place was recommended to us by our TO. Lovely little place, not too far from NBO and set in pretty gardens. We thought the price was a little high for what it was, but the service was great and the room was clean.

Very friendly and willing staff. Nice colonial-era house and garden. Great location...but expensive for quality: Positives: staff; location; garden; service; great wifi coverage Negatives: dated and basic; noisy staff waking guests; price; dim rooms If they could updated the decor, bedding,lighting etc. would be great. Very good people.
