Phyllis and the team at Hibiscus Guesthouse have done an incredible job to create an affordable, comfortable and friendly place to stay while in Nairobi. The next time I'm back in Nairobi I'll be going straight back to Hibiscus.
My experience in order of importance (for me):
People: the staff are awesome. Always smiling and happy to help you in any way possible. I moved in to a friend's place after staying here but often popped in to say hi when in the area. Chef Joseph even gave up his time to teach me how to make ugali and beef stew.
Location: perfectly situated near fun bars, good restaurants and handy malls. The guest house is set off the road and behind gates with a security guard there 24/7. It's also very close to many of the technology hubs (iHub, 88mph etc.), walking distance to Impala Sports club (outdoor pool) and just a couple of minutes from where you can take a bus into town.
Food: awesome breakfast spreads with eggs, omelets etc. cooked to order. I never sampled other meals but there are always amazing smells wafting from the kitchen.
Accommodation: the rooms are all clean and tidy. You're not getting 5* luxury but that's not the point of Hibiscus. My double room was big with a huge ensuite bathroom and a large safe (big enough for a laptop) There's a communal sitting area and free WiFi with a good connection throughout. There's also a super chilled garden and outdoor sitting area.
