We stayed for 5 weeks at Nellie's when we were in Nairobi writing our master thesis. It was great!
Nellie is a very social and outgoing hostess. She gave us lots of advice about Nairobi and how to get around. The rooms are very nice and clean and allows for privacy.
We highly recommend Nellie regardless of whether you're staying for a short or long time.
Next time we're going to Nairobi there is only one place to stay!
Thank you Nellie and hope to see you soon again!

Nellie was an absolute delight during our stay in her home! I traveled to Nairobi with my mother, and she made us feel like we were part of her family. Her home was immaculately kept. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. A housekeeper comes to the house several times during the week. For a small cost, the housekeeper even washes and irons clothes.
Nellie went over and beyond to make sure we had a fantastic time in Nairobi. She offered recommendations for our itinerary and we used a reliable taxi driver for our week-long visit. She also cooked a delicious Kenyan meal for us for a very reasonable cost.
We have a new family member! I'll always stay with her while in Nairobi.
Nellie was a very good host! Our stay, even thug short (two nights), was pleasant and confortable. Her place si cozy and clean. She is very helpful with tips and things to do. She also help us finding a great taxi company to move us around Nairobi and pick us up from the airport. If by any chance Nellie hires the same company, try to ask for Oliver as your driver, He is awesome as well. Nairobi is a really big city and with chaotic traffic; it is not easy to move around, we strongly suggest you find someone to move you around. Nellie's place has a great, safe and peaceful location; but we decided to use the recommended cab company instead of walking around and finding matatus.
Тихий район Найроби, до центральной части города можно дойти пешком. Хозяйка очень доброжелательная и отзывчивая женщина, помогала нам во всем, от встречи в аэропорту, до заказа столика в ресторане. Рекомендую.
Nellie is a great host, she will help you with a lot of tips and tricks during your stay in Nairobi. The house is great, very clean, you feel immediatly at home. The neigbourhood is very safe compared with other parts of the city. You will not be disappointed ,Good value for money. And she loves to share all the stories of her kids and grandchildren! You feel her warm heart. She helped with any transfer to the airport, Nairobi park, city....
