“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

I spent 2 nights here (A Monday and Tuesday night) and had no issues the entire time. If you talk to the staff they are really great. The staff at the restaurant are wonderful, the front desk staff are willing to help with any problems you may have, and the manager was wonderful. The room was clean and practical for a trip to Nairobi where you really only need a place to leave your stuff and sleep. I was in a double room and it had a desk, cabinet for hanging a jacket or clothes, and a nice bathroom with a large shower. It is only about a 15 - 20 minute walk away from the National Museum of Kenya which is worth checking out if your in the area. The only issues some people may find is that it is near a busy road that has cars and people on it all night long. The noise isn't really bad unless you really need close to absolute silence to fall asleep. Overall, no complaints and wonderful staff.

Just simplest place to stay in Nairobi. Good for budget travelers.
There is free wi-fi (rather slow), restaurant, they can organize taxi to airport for 2000KES (Oct 2013).
Located opposite market where you can buy souvenirs, also close to supermarkets where you can pay credit cards. Rather expensive if I compare to similar standard hostels in Central Europe, however East Africa is rather expensive place for tourists.
I didn't find anything cheaper with minimum facilities around. I'd likely return there if looking for accommodation in Nairobi.

I spent 4 nights there before returning back to Egypt .really like the double room I took with my friend , basic, clean and perfect for its price .
Friendly people ( even when we caused them some troubles due to misbehavior of a drunken friend )
The major advantage is the location, you will be close to everything as its almost at the city center of Nairobi.
Recommended for budget traveler .

I felt as an Irish man very exposed to everything, the location being ok during the day became very dangerous at night. Maybe as a pit stop its ok but apart from that id stay away. In saying this the staff were very friendly and very welcoming. It's just a pity about the location and the slaughter house in front of it and the gospel singing in the building beside it.

hello Traveler
we are sorry for the experience you had while your stay at the Embassy.
Unfortunately there is a mobile church on Fridays 2 buildings away and they congregate on Friday evenings and pray into the night. I can assure you we have forwarded several complaints in regards to the same to the relevant authorities. As for the market it has a distinct attraction and the same has been grieved by locals too.
Hope the above explains our situation.
Our service to our guests is our priority.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night, the staff at the hotel were great and very friendly. There is a well priced cafe inside the hotel, a good wifi connection and they can arrange airport pick ups. The room was nothing special and unfortunately there was alot of street noise which made sleeping slightly difficult, for one night however is was ok.

I have bee using the Embassy Hotel for years now. If you want to be in the center of Nairobi, it's hard to beat the Embassy. Safe. Friendly staff. Within walking distance of Kenyatta Ave. You will have to go out for food but luckily there's a very good restaurant next door, Bridges.
I have found the beds very comfortable here.
Basic but everything you'd need.
They even have wi-fi now.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the upper floors to get away from the street noise .
