Beautiful resort. The owner is a very friendly Kenyan lady who was keen to make us feel welcome in Kenya. Newly refurbished. Offers Kenyan breakfast. The resort has a garden and a gate and a 24 hour security guard. In a green and quiet, yet no posh, part of Nairobi. There are two supermarkets within walking distance. The Greenhouse is...

I spent 5 nights at the Ndemi Place, which is well located off Ngong Road with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. It occupies a large leafy compound and is centred on an old colonial bungalow (with various additions and stand-alone structures), as other plots around it get snapped up for high rise development. I was given...

Ndemi place is a quiet, cosy homely inn in Nairobi, which just reminded me of staying at my favorite aunt's place with good quality wifi, and my own room. The beds are cozy, working desks are functional. I liked it because I was working on a high pressure deliverable and needed a place where I could disconnect for a bit,...

I've stayed here a few times and usually enjoy it. However, not all rooms are as good as others. A few are right next to the kitchen and they get no ventilation and the staff wake you up early in the morning. The breakfast is included but it's pretty slow. Staff are nice but manager wasn't around very often and...

The rooms are not fancy but clean and comfortable. Location is very quiet and the garden is beautiful. Also, Ndemi Place had the best coffee of all places we tried during our two week vacation in Kenya and Tanzania.

Ndemi place is perfect when you're seeking to escape the busy streets of Nairobi with delicious authentic food, excellent service, and clean large rooms with both wifi and hot water. I would rather return to this lovely place than staying at a hotel!

We needed a place to spend the night before our transfer to Amboseli and Ndemi Place was recommended to us by our TO. Lovely little place, not too far from NBO and set in pretty gardens. We thought the price was a little high for what it was, but the service was great and the room was clean.

Feels just like home with comfortable rooms and well furnished sitting areas. The staff are friendly and always have a smile on their faces. It's located in a safe, quiet neighbourhood which...
