Beautiful suites in in upmarket Karen
I had a one night stay here to relax after a busy trip around Kenya. The grand main building houses the restaurant, bar and terrace, with the spa and pool out th back. I was greeted and taken to my room by a butler, who showed me round. My suite was huge, with a four poster bed and effective mosquito net. The bathroom was giant, with a toilet, shower, two sinks, free standing bath and dressing room. I also had a balcony that overlooked the beautifully landscaped garden. I had fresh fruit and flowers in my room as well as tea, coffee, kettle and mini bar. Breakfast had a large buffet, with interesting options such as Bircher muesli and watermelon juice, as well as the standard cereals, pastries and English breakfast. Dinner also had an extensive menu, with daily specials and a good wine list. I requested a late check out and they could only accommodate a one hour extension on my room. I stayed by the pool until my late night flight and showered using the spa showers.

Beautiful hotel!
Excellent hotel in a beautiful setting! Service is impeccable and the staff is extremely friendly. The restaurant is very nice, but I wish it served African dishes as well. I will definitely come back the next time I am in Nairobi!

Thank You Hemingways for a Wonderful time!!!
Everyone working at a hotel is important, but concierges are the hearts and souls of the hotel and surrounding area, and even the country they represent. Our stay at Hemingways Nairobi was perfect because George and Kennedy (the dynamic duo) aarranged our trips with perfect drivers and guides. We made requests with rather complicated itineraries (visiting Denys Finch Hatton's grave, finding an esoteric stained glass window shop, arranging train tickets). Each request was handled with attention to details that we hadn't considered and the most efficient use of our limited time. They said not to worry and that they would do their best, and they did. Thanks to them we had a wonderful trip and were able to sleep at night. I am an old person traveling with my daughter, my husband had to stay behind and work. We have always used and appreciate the services of a concierge but this time we had the very best service ever and they made my entire family over the moon with happiness!!!

Very Nice Stay
Overall, I had an excellent stay at the Hemingways Nairobi. The property is gorgeous and spotlessly clean. The rooms are very luxurious, comfortable and well-decorated. I ordered breakfast in my room, which the staff forgot, but it was promptly sent once I called the operator. I would recommend staying here while in Nairobi.
