Lovely hotel in the centre of Nairobi. It is located on a busy street downtown but the hotel security was excellent and we always felt safe. The rooms were very nice & clean-great shower etc. I would highly recommend this hotel but maybe request a room at the back or on a higher floor as front facing rooms on the...

If one has style, one simply has to love the Kipepeo hotel-restaurant.

Superb television quality. Nice temperatured waters in the showers. Good food. A jazz band...

I went to Nairobi on a business trip on June 2015. Location wise the hotel is good but for long stay it is not advisable. The restaurant is not clean, the room is clean but never get the room at the mezanine because of the disturbance at the bar. Boring experience.

We stayed here for only a night and would never stay again. We check-in our room and found the bathroom light was not working. I called the reception to repair it for 3 times but no one showed up despite the lady on the other end promising someone would come. At times no one picked the phone and I had...
