“Great value for 1 week stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

I had been living in Nairobi for 3 months and wanted to lives in the central business district for my last week.

This hotel was great. First off you can't best the price. Rooms were clean, water was hot, staff was friendly, location was perfect!

It is definitely not a five star hotel but I feel you get more than you are paying for.

Stayed August 2014, traveled on business

We came from a top rated property a long way from town.....it cost a fortune in taxis to get anywhere and for a private room with its own bathroom was twice the cost of what we are paying at the Embassy. Its a fantastic budget hotel for travellers who want to be right in the City. Lots of great (and cheap!) eating options close. Very quick to work out how the local matatu (minivan taxis) run, from where etc.....everyone on these have been great - no negative comments at all quite the opposite - we have felt very welcome by everyone here in Nairobi - hotel, people on the streets, in the restaurants and minivans/buses etc. We are from New Zealand so always asking for directions etc and everyone has been amazing and so helpful! We love Kenya and we love the Embassy. Stayed 2 nights before going on a budget safari (a definite must do by EVERYONE to the Masai Mara!!!) they looked after our bags while we were away, all very safe and cant rate highly enough. Since back we have stayed 5 nights - tv, own bathroom with lots of hot water, great bed, clean sheets/towels...a bit noisy but what do you expect in the middle in town!! Would definitely recommend to everyone and stay here again! THANK YOU EMBASSY....

Room Tip: The front rooms or back rooms are probably both a bit 'city' noisy....2nd, 3rd and 4th floor...

Stayed there for a couple of days some weeks ago. The hotel is cheap, centrally located with quite big rooms. However, it did not look like it had been cleaned thoroughly for quite some time, especially the hallway.
You should not try and get some advice from the staff since they are obviously biased and not telling you the cheapest or best choices (In my experience). They did not tell us the basic rules, for example on when to check out, and you are not going to see them hanging up anywhere around. And if you decide to use their safety box, do a list of what you put INTO the safe, and what you take OUT. Lets just say I wouldn't use their safe again.

Just unbelievably comfortable for the price. And as I expected from the 25 dayer on this page, the staff are all really lovely and everything just feels comfortable and nice. Nothing is ever a problem (bicycle, receipts, odd requests), hot water and internet work perfectly for me (three days so far on 3rd floor), I've stayed Thursday to Saturday and no noise at all any time of day (contrary to other reports here), small single is big enough even shared with bicycle, with lots of practical features (desk, drying rails, cupboards, shelves, bedside lamp, net, etc), although peeked at their deluxe and they look really gorgeous. Hot shower is powerful on 3rd floor and divine. Supermarkets, restaurants, bars, etc all a minute away. Been out all hours alone and never had any trouble. And whenever you arrive at the hotel you are greeted with wide genuine cheery smiles. And one of the cheapest places in Nairobi. I'm on expenses so could go upmarket but personally prefer this kind of place to a sterile international.

This is a good budget option in a convenient and (relatively) quiet part of Nairobi. The rooms are basic but spacious, clean, and self-contained with hot water (though our shower head didn't work). The hotel doesn't allow alcohol but has a restaurant with good and inexpensive local food. For the price it's a good option for travelers in Nairobi for a short visit or in transit.

The room was clean and quite big. Hotel is perfect if you need a place to sleep and leave you luggage. It's located in the city center so you can find shops, reastaurants, ATM not far from the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Embassy is a realy good choice.

I spent 3 night in hotel embassy and it was really good..the room was clean and the bed was comfortable..the bathroom was a little bit old but it work..the staff was helpful and nice
it is just in front of city markets and near restaurants and supermarkets.
I recommend it to a budget travelers who need a place for sleep and showers

Room Tip: try to get a room in higher floors and away from the stairs.
