We stumbled onto Dreamplace after escaping a nearby guesthouse (which was undergoing noisy construction), and were gratified for having done so. It is a beautiful building with spacious rooms. new fixtures, and lots of natural light. The bedroom was very comfortable and, critically, the internet was lightning fast. There are also sunny balconies and quiet sitting rooms, and the staff is friendly and accommodating.
Dreamplace is a five-minute walk from the upscale Village Markets shopping mall and a fifteen-minute walk from the UN complex, the US embassy, and the various other embassies in Gigiri. Security is ample throughout the neighborhood.
The manager was extraordinarily helpful. We were moving to Nairobi, and she was generous with both advice and assistance, even making multiple inquiries on our behalf. She was also able to accommodate the many times we chose to extend our stay (twice we decided that we felt safer and more comfortable in Dreamplace than in the service apartments we'd been looking into).
Having stayed in another Gigiri guesthouse, and having visited a several others, we felt that Dreamplace was the best option in the neighborhood--the newest, quietest, most comfortable and least expensive. We would definitely stay again.
