If you are spending some time in Nairobi and want to spend some time visiting the sites in Karen then Hemmingways is a great option. Karen itself is lovely and away from the rush and traffic of downtown Natriobi. This can be a boon but if you need to be in the centre then travel can be an issue.
It is a new hotel with nice grounds and really nice rooms - the best Ive seen in Nairobi and in most other parts of the world. Each room is large and well appointed with a balcony overlooking the manicured lawns.
The bathroom was large and well arranged and the general standard of housekeeping and luxury could not be faulted.
Food was good also and the breakfast had good choice and was well presnted.
