“Great place to start and finish a safari in Kenya!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I and my wife stayed at Karen Embers guesthouse in Karen, Nairobi for three nights - prior, in-between and after safaris. Our initial booking was for Bush House & Camp, but they turned us away upon arrival despite of our reservation and send us to Karen Embers.

This place is a great choice for moderately priced accommodation in Nairobi - a beautiful colonial house with well kept garden. Fabulous staff and atmosphere, great breakfast and dinner. Fast wi-fi Internet connection directly from the room. The location is in the upscale suburb of Karen, away from hustle and bustle of downtown Nairobi, not that far from Wilson airport (the local fights to the game reserves). We personally could not thing of a better place to stay in Nairobi and would recommend this B&B to anyone who does not need to be in downtown Nairobi.

We stumbled upon this place while looking for honeymoon destination. We visited the place before hand and we were pleasantly surprised by how quiet and beautiful the place is.

We chose a deluxe room but management upgraded us to super deluxe at no extra cost. The staff are very friendly and will cater to your every need. The gardens are beautiful and the food was excellent. The rooms were very spacious and clean. It looks exactly like the photos on the website.

We would definitely recommend this for anyone who's looking for a honeymoon spot or just a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.They have conference facilities as well.
