Siye's place is better than description, warmer than expected.... a memorable experience! I strongly recommend it!

I stayed with Siye for 8 weeks. The location is good, walking distance to shopping centers Adlife Plaza and Yaya Center and in a nice neighbourhood. The house and room were ok, but I stayed in the last room which had limited access to Wifi. If I wanted a good connection I had to go to the living room. If you are going to stay with Siye you must know that you will be living with her in the house and that she has quite a few rules, and there are many things she wants in a certain way. If you don't follow the rules exactly she will tell you how to do it differently. This can be a bit exhausting if you stay for a long time, but for short stays it shouldn't be a problem. She means well and if you have problems the other way around, she will do her best to help you and fix them.

Siye's place is in a convenient location in Yaya center. I get a room with a large bed and bathroom to myself, and wifi works very well. Her relatives who stay there are friendly and helpful. Siye was very accommodating in helping me check in at 5 am. The only draw back is that there are a lot of mosquitos and I'm not sure why -- I still find them after closing all windows, and they kept me up a few nights. I am particularly attractive to mosquitos, though.

A superb, patient and well informed hostess Siye who is always eager to assist at all times regardless of the the situation or time. A nice, quiet flat with a very accommodative hostess

Siye was very friendly and the apartment was clean and centrally-located. However, due to another guest staying longer than expected, I was put on a mattress in the living room and only notified of this on the day of my arrival. This would have been OK if there had been a mosquito net, but without one, I wasn't able to sleep all night.

Hi. I'm Siye. I come from Ethiopia. I live in (and manage) this cozy 3 bedroom apartment centrally located in Nairobi. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and hosting them. We are behind a major shopping center (Yaya Centre) for convenient grocery shopping and other needs. We are also located near main roads for bus travel. My maid and I make sure to keep the apartment very clean for a pleasant experience. I also cook the meals for my guests. I am skilled in cooking Ethiopian and Italian cuisines, but can adapt to your preferences. I look forward to meeting you uh
