We only stayed 1 day but the facilities were excellent. Clean and well cared for. The staff was amazing! Super friendly. We loved it! Highly recommended to anyone traveling in Kenya. We came in mid-morning and were served a very tasty breakfast and then rested awhile before drifting off to sleep for a few hours. We had traveled on a...

Had a fantastic experience at Eden Gardens. The staff was kind and attentive, the place is beautiful, the room was comfortable, and the wifi was literally the best of any I'd found in all of Kenya (probably helped that my room was right by the router :)). I was streaming TV shows like whoa, something I had missed being able...

I do not think that my experience could be any further from any of the other reviewers. First, there was a misunderstanding with our reservation, so we showed up only to be told that there was no availability. They recommended another hotel nearby that the front desk person had never stepped foot in, which was also more expensive. When we...

The titles of the other reviews are somewhat surprising and I can't see what we missed. True, the garden is pleasant, although the pool water looked a little too green for my liking and certainly not the same blue as the photograph shows. The bedroom was very tiny, there were no lamp shades on the lights and only 2 of...

I stayed for a week at Eden Gardens in Nairobi together with my wife and it was a very pleasant experience. Eden Gardens is located in the upscale area of Lavington and it is very nice to walk around in the area. It is very green and peaceful here with several nice restaurants around.

Eden Gardens was more than expected. It has an amazing garden that is perfect for functions. The rooms are very nice and cosy, and the staff is very service minded and hard working.

Eden Gardens was a refferal through a common friend of myself and Endre, I was not the least bit dissapointed and could not believe my luck to discover Eden gardens, a beautiful, intimate, exquisite and cosy guest house with lots of greenery, a river flowing through the compound and a swimming pool all in an upmarket and tranquil location.

Eden Gardens is run by an enthusiastic staff who are both easy-going and flexible. This is by far the value add of this homey, informal little place. The accommodation is of a good quality for this price range. It's in a good area and it's centrally located (equidistant to everywhere, but out of the hustle and bustle of the city...

“big beds with too much space”
 of 5 bubbles elinkd, Oct 27, 2014 | Read review
“All the rooms are good. I care mostly about cost so I chose to share a bathroom. I have been here almost a month and I have yet to actually share the bathroom. Where is my neighbor? We must have different schedules. I am extra hard on hotels. If I give a four out of five, it is like a 98%. I am digitally deficient. I cannot figure out how to upload more than 20 photos of the place. Once I figure this out, I will upload. Stay tuned.”
