The Hotel's central location makes it convenient to access from all around the City. I stayed there for two nights on the weekend but didn't use the bar or restaurant. The room I stayed was on the first floor and it was clean, safe and very comfortable. The staff were also welcoming.

Having paid $55 to stay here on a Monday night, we expected a simple yet comfortable hotel room. We had an early flight so we were disappointed to see that our window overlooked a large 'atrium' running through the centre of the building and carrying the noise all the way to our room. Brown water in the shower and taps... More

The room hade no Aircondition or warmwater. But if you ask the staff you could get a fan. There is no mosquito nets unless you ask for it, and believe me, you WILL need it. The food was soso, but the liqour was cheap.

The hotel was quite fine. But the fees were not cleary defined, so I paid so much for the service I had. The rooms were clean,with warm water, but the tv didn't work. From rooms I got a lot of smell from the kitchen. My advise is to book the hotel from tripadvisor or other so that you get a... More

My first review was in October of 2014. Since then I've been back repeatedly and now consider this as a "home" in Nairobi. Many of the staff know me by name. My big pluses are the cleanliness - it's always being cleaned - and the desire of the staff to meet your needs. There are lots of "loveable" quirks. I... More

This property is clinically managed, very homely and the rooms well spaced out. One amazing fact is that the staffs are warmly with a high level on inter personal relationship.. It does not matter how many days or weeks you stayed, you will love to come back again.

This place is a hidden gem! To clear something up ..River Road where Kipepeo is located has a reputation for being one of Nairobi ' s ' mean street's'. Our experience was that this was more urban myth than reality. We were coming and going at all times of the day and night and had NO problems at all. The... More
