Memorable weekend
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

If you are looking for a weekend getaway in Nairobi, look no further. The property is located in a serene and picturesque part of Karen. All the rooms face an extensive mature garden. It was so quiet that the only noise we heard was the occasional birdsong or rustling of leaves by the wind. We had a beautiful view of the majestic Ngong hills from our room. Service was impeccable and we were well looked after. The food was some of the best we have had the pleasure to taste. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were wonderful! We also made use of the spa and particularly enjoyed the sauna facilities which we will return to use. We hope to make another visit in the future. The experience was as every bit as good as it looks on their website. Thank you very much to Evelyne the manager and all the staff at Hemingways Nairobi.

Holiday of a lifetime

This was the first and last hotel of my trip to Kenya on a Hemingway’s Collection package.
We were picked up from the airport by Francis who looked after us so well, nothing was too much trouble as he took us to Sheldrick’s Wildlife Trust and the Giraffe Centre, he was so proud of his home country.
The hotel certainly felt like coming home, though the rooms are far more than luxurious than my home!
I felt like a princess, I just knew the next two weeks we were going to spend in Kenya were going to be unforgettable and truly wonderful
They corordinated in finite detail internal flights, drop offs / collections / luggage wonderfully
Thankyou Hemingway’s for making the best memories that I will cherish forevermore

Hemingways is known alot for the beautiful pictures it presents. Very well done foyer, takes your breath everytime you walk in. My first experience of a meal there wasn't anything to write home about, but boy has my most recent visit blown my mind. For the price, I was particularly impressed by the pork with mash and the chicken curry. The desserts were equally brilliant. I must commend the chef for adding reason to those ever beautiful views. Definitely reason for another menu sample! Good job
