Hotel Kipepeo was a fine place to stay in Nairobi. We found the room to be spacious enough and clean. The breakfast (included) in the morning provided sufficient choices and filled us up. A staff person even volunteered to walk us six blocks to catch a bus as we would not have known how to get there ourselves. It was... More

Wow..just, wow. The room was very expensive for the ghetto. Dirty sheets, bug net did not even cover both beds. No hot water in the room. I told the staff there was no hot water and all I got was an apology. I exited my room at 3am and found a staff member right outside my door which made me... More

I spent one night in the Kipepeo hotel thinking that a 3 star hotel could not be so bad but I was wrong. Our toilett was broken, the sheets were not so clean and the breakfast was pretty poor. So you should really only stay there if you look for a very economic option in Nairobi

I stayed 2 times by 1 night in this hotel. Hotel is a average, nothing special. Value for money is very good for Nairobi. Room is small, but clean. Room has all minimum required for short stay. I suppose it won't look nice if you will stay there for long. Hotel doesn't have elevator and our room was on top... More

They claimed to have internet - did not work. They claimed to have large rooms - add half a meter around a bed and you get the size of the room. They claimed in was cosy - the A/C engine for the kitchen that happened to be right behind my window ceased to work for five minutes every half hour.... More

The hotel has two guards at the front door which describes the location this hotel sits in. The hotel has running water, western style toilets and an okay shower. There is one major issue with this hotel. The hotel has a lounge area in the centre of the ground floor with an atrium that goes up to the roof which... More

We stayed in the Kipepeo only one night, arranged by our Safari company, between one week of safari in the north of Kenya and the next week in the south. The place is simple but very decent. It is newly renovated, rooms are clean and have hot water, furniture is modern. For 60 USD a night, it is a rarity... More
