“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Although the La Jardine Hotel is located in downtown Nairobi, it is not in one of the "better" areas. But it should not be discarded for that reason. The hotel is clean, very friendly and helpful staff, a very good breakfast included in the price and WiFi. My room, although spartan, had a very comfortable bed. The bathroom, albeit small, was fully functional; everything worked. And check out the neighbourhood; we did. Lots of fun.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upgrade; you may get it. Also ask for a room that is on the other side of the garage...

Awesome front desk staff (Doreen and Liza or Aliza). Doreen was exceptional. Rooms are clean. Prices are fair. Pretty good facility and environment. Security Guards are alert often times.
Wood stump clock pretty original but needs resetting. Toilets need covers. Unsealed gaps in windows let in some noise.
Thanks Doreen for walking me through the room, ensuring I got soap and sleepers pretty quick after my request. Thanks liza ( not sure that her right name) for walking me through the room on my first day and trying to fix the TV that did not work finally.
I will patronize again. I would recommend to a friend.

Room Tip: Rooms in upper floors, on south side are less noisy. Doreen is pretty good at switching and assignin...

I have had the pleasure of staying in La Jardine Kasuku Rd and La Jardine right in the heart of Nairobis Central Business District. La Jardine Kasuku Rd was quite the experience with its mouth watering array of dishes, excellent service and spectacular simple cool colours themed rooms. I have often gone back for meetings or to just have that home made pot of chai they are so good at or their freshly brewed coffee and farmers choice sausages.
The serene atmospere in the bandas is an experience I would wish on anybody who wants to have that alone moment as they surf through the internet on their laptops as they have wifi services for free.
La jardine Ngara, is very convinient location wise as its not very far from the city centre. Its actually a walking distance. Again, the services are excellent. Very friendly stuff members. One Brenda was very kind and walked me through the entire hotel to just get a feel of their rooms before settling in. I thought that was very thoughtful. Again, the food is a delight and for sports lovers, they have all this big screen TVs strategically placed all over the place.
La Jardine Hotels come highly recommended and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend any of my friends for a long stay or for just that freshly brewed cup of chai or coffee or to just unwind at the well stocked bar after a long day at work.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less a/c unit noise and they give a good view of the city centre.
