The people at Hibiscus really make this a place worth staying at. This was my first time traveling to Nairobi and Africa in general and I came in with some of the usual concerns. They turned out to be unjustified as Hibiscus really became a second home. I had breakfast and dinner everyday and the meals were filling and varied... More

My husband and I stayed there with the rest of our family in January 2014. It was a nice little oasis in the middle of a not-so-nice city. While the rooms weren't the most amazing thing, the people working there made the trip awesome. They went above and beyond multiple times to help my family and I out. They made... More

The staff made our stay. Every single person who works at Hibiscus is kind, friendly and extremely thoughtful. They went above-and-beyond on several occasions -- from helping find drivers for last-minute full-day excursions, to helping my sister and brother-in-law plan a four-day side trip. The garden is lovely -- a great place to sit outside and read for a bit.... More

Nice and friendly, really helpfull staff. Nice location with a beautiful garden away from heavy traffic.Good breakfast with pancaces! You need taxi to go to the citycenter, the staff will help you to order, around 500 shilling one way. They will also pick you uo at the airport if you want.

Don't have any big complaints about this place but can't say its great either. The rooms are alright but don't inspire any long stays, you can hear whole conversations from the neighbors. The common area is a bit cold and besides having breakfast there, which was decent, never felt like staying. Seems more like a place for a little business... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. En suite room was large and clean. My only complaint was that the garden was disappointing -it lacked character and interest in a country where beautiful flowers grow rapidly.

I had a great stay - lovely friendly staff, some great taxi-drivers! I would recommend that you ask for rooms INSIDE the house - slightly better appointed rooms and fast internet! Thanks, Hibiscus Guesthouse!

Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the Hibiscus is a wonderful home away from home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The wi-fi works, the shower is hot, and the food is delicious. The staff is helpful and accommodating. I was served Chai when I requested it, and my comfort was given every consideration. I have given the guest house 5... More

This is a small guest house in a converted bungalow with 7 or 8 rooms, most of them en-suite. It's just off the Ngong Road and well located for the Kilimani/Hurlingham area, with loads of places to eat in the immediate area - cafes and sushi within 3 mins walk at the Greenhouse mall and the adjacent Adams arcade, the...

Hotel accommodation can be expensive in Nairobi, but Hibiscus Guest House offers a clean, comfortable, less expensive alternative with a wonderful, friendly staff and free WiFi throughout the premises (both in the common spaces and in the bedrooms). The guesthouse is located in Kilimani, which is a little ways from the Central Business District, but it is easy to get... More
