On my past visits to Nairobi my colleagues insisted on staying in one of the 'Big Name' hotels which I found to be soul-less with good service but not exactly what you might call homely.... And then I found the Wildebeest Camp. I could gush on all day about the wonderful tents; the fantastic people I've met there and had really invigorating conversations with; the wonderfully helpful and discreet staff; the beauty of the place; the proximity to the city centre; the overall relaxed atmosphere and of course barney - the dog who looks like Scooby Doo. It was like home away from home. NO! Scratch that, my home is not even close to how cool the Wildebeest camp is. Don't miss it. Really! Brendan (Ireland)

A small and simple B&B with very friendly staff. The location is save during daylight, I would not recommend to go there in the dark, but with Taxi this not a real problem.

It is a bit out of town, but great for the price. The owner is very friendly, and the house is very nice. It is secure and hospitable, but just not easy to get to Nairobi. Otherwise it is a great place.

Oledeani crescent house no .33 off matumbato roadVery good 78%
We really liked milimani backpackers. It felt like a really safe little haven in nairobi. Staff were so so helpful and friendly, we were very well looked after. It did seem quite expensive compared to other places we stayed in kenya, however for nairobi it was still cheap. Only hot shower we had for 5 weeks!
Tubman Road, Opposite City Market P.O Box 47247Very good 76%
P O Box 10265Good 74%
Nice comfortably house with quiet relax garden and environment. All staffs are really friendly and helpful. Clean room but still have mosquitoes. It's far from city center and seems like no taxi driver know this place. Difficult to getting around, only by 15 min walk on the dusty road to catch matatu on Langata road. The taxi service is very expensive, start from 1000 ksh in any distance and any leg (though we just get around Karen museum area)e.g. to Carnivore 1000 Ksh, to Giraffe center 1500 ksh oneway(we catch local taxi for just 400 ksh on the return). Recommended for rest after the safari but be careful of the taxi price which is the only way to get out after dark!

Situated north-east of Nairobi city centre, Mooreland hotel is located on top of a local bar. This bar can be noisy late at night/early in the morning. We had a room with two large single beds, one bed was comfortable while the other was rock hard! For the cost though, it is expected. Friendly staff.
Soitololo Road off Forest Road p.o. box 17278Good 70%
The apartment was nice, but we were disappointed with it. There weren't toilet seats on two of the toilets, and the one that had a toilet seat, was broken. There were no shower curtains on the showers, making the floor slippery. We didn't know from the site information that it was on the 5th floor, and we had an 81 year old lady in our group. I would stay again, if these things were addressed ( and if I didn't have an 81 year old with us)
