Hotel Kipepeo
Ranked #110 of 169 Hotels in Nairobi
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I splashed out on Kipepeo at the end of my last trip to Nairobi, where I usually stay at a budget place closeby. Kipepeo is solidly in the 3 star bracket with clean and nicely decorated rooms. Rooms and bathrooms are a bit on the small side but in line with room sizes elsewhere in downtown.

Staff were helpful and their restaurant is reasonably priced with good buffet and juices. Note that this hotel is in DOWNTOWN Nairobi, which some overseas visitors may find hectic. The hotel is ideally placed for transit and arrival/departure by bus. Note that rates can get expensive in high season.

Room Tip: Rooms either face into the atrium or to the main street but windows are reasonably sound proofed so...

Stayed for one night: after an evening arrival needed a place to spend the night before the safari.
The hotel is located somewhere in the center, but in a small, narrow street.
Did not have the desire to walk, so the dinner went to Carnivore.
The room is small, do not turn around a couple times.
Tiny bathroom, no towels.
For cleanliness - all mediocre.
Breakfast is more than modest, but we load up and there were not going :)
In general: very budget option for an overnight stay in Nairobi.

I always have a transit through Nairobi and look out for Hotels where I can sleep sound and catch my morning flight fresh.

This Hotel was good in that sense. Though a little noisy because of the restaurant downstairs but the noise dies down or may be I was too tired to hear it!!. The room was small but I had a very comfortable bed and heated water in the shower which mattered most.
The staffs were extremely friendly and helpful.The breakfast was ready at 5:30 in the morning and the staff insisted me to have it and leave the hotel, which was sweet and quite professional.

I would recommend this place

Very nice staff and a good place to stay! We arrived very early in the morning and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Nice clean rooms and a nice restaurant! We would stay there again! Had the best pina colada ever here.
