Nice and friendly, really helpfull staff. Nice location with a beautiful garden away from heavy traffic.Good breakfast with pancaces! You need taxi to go to the citycenter, the staff will help you to order, around 500 shilling one way. They will also pick you uo at the airport if you want.

Don't have any big complaints about this place but can't say its great either. The rooms are alright but don't inspire any long stays, you can hear whole conversations from the neighbors. The common area is a bit cold and besides having breakfast there, which was decent, never felt like staying. Seems more like a place for a little business retreat. Positive things are its location which though not in the center is close to a main mall and not too close to a busy street and noise. Has a garden but again lacked something that made you want to hang out there. Would recommend it however for short stay and on lower budget. Staff friendly enough but takes a while to find one.

Room Tip: There are some higher budget rooms but only a few so book early.

Very friendly and helpful staff. En suite room was large and clean. My only complaint was that the garden was disappointing -it lacked character and interest in a country where beautiful flowers grow rapidly.

I had a great stay - lovely friendly staff, some great taxi-drivers! I would recommend that you ask for rooms INSIDE the house - slightly better appointed rooms and fast internet!

Thanks, Hibiscus Guesthouse!

Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the Hibiscus is a wonderful home away from home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The wi-fi works, the shower is hot, and the food is delicious. The staff is helpful and accommodating. I was served Chai when I requested it, and my comfort was given every consideration. I have given the guest house 5 stars, not because it is palatial, but you get more than you pay for. David Njau, the husband of the owner is an excellent resource as well. He has his own tour service and will get you anywhere you want on time for a reasonable amount. That is priceless in Nairobi!

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a TV and private bath so request one if you want it.
