The staff made our stay. Every single person who works at Hibiscus is kind, friendly and extremely thoughtful. They went above-and-beyond on several occasions -- from helping find drivers for last-minute full-day excursions, to helping my sister and brother-in-law plan a four-day side trip.

The garden is lovely -- a great place to sit outside and read for a bit.

The rooms are average. They don't inspire long stays, but Nairobi doesn't really do that either :)

The neighborhood has a few nice things nearby -- a sushi restaurant (surprisingly great!) and an Ethiopian restaurant a few blocks away. Avoid the restaurant across the street. It's gross.

For the price, this was an incredible value. Big bonus for the great staff. We'd absolutely stay there again simply for their kindness.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main house seem to be a bit larger than the satellite rooms.

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!
