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.
I stayed with Nellie during a week-long work trip to Nairobi. I was busy most of the time, but Nellie was a friendly host, offering good advice on restaurants and attractions at a moment's notice.
Nellie's home is perfectly situated in Nairobi. It is spotlessly clean very comfortable and very secure. But the star of the show is Nellie, who really goes out of her way to make you feel at home. She is the perfect ambassador for world renown Kenyan hospitality. And if you get the chance to sample her cooking - especially of traditional Kenyan dishes - just say, YES PLEASE!
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....
Nellie has a nice and spacious apartment. Its clean and comfortable and its good for a long stay and for a short stay as well.

The stay with Nellie was pleasant, she is a good hostess!
Thank you, Nellie!
GENERAL. Nellie is a very good host and made to feel at home. I could go to sleep and wake up and make my breakfast anytime. She also helped by putting her computer desk in my room so I could work, etc. The place is clean and tidy. She is a good cook but if you plan to eat dinner, let her know the night before and discuss your likes/dislikes. She arranged taxis through a company she found reliable and I confirm the rates were competitive. SOURCE OF LOCAL KNOWLEDGE. Nellie having lived in Nairobi provided a lot of information. During my stay, matau (local transportation) operators went on strike. This increased use of taxis and personal vehicles and hence traffic jams. Rumor had it purse snatching and the like had gone up as many decided to walk. Since Nellie is at home when in town, she was able to plug into her network to find out the situation in different parts of the city. During this, one day when I could not get taxis and decided to walk to an appointment, Nellie arranged for one of the male cleaners from the building complex to accompany me, which was very thoughtful. SAFETY OF BELONGINGS. Other reviewers talked about leaving money and valuables and nothing was lost. I had the same experience. RECOMMENDATION. Highly recommended.
Nellie was a great host. Place is clean/ safe and she knows a good taxi company that can take you around. She also knows much about her country and can teach you many things! had a great time staying with her.
I would highly recommend staying with Nellie! She's a warm, wonderful hostess, and has a wealth of knowledge to share about Nairobi and the surrounding areas - what to do, where to go, etc. Nellie's home is in a lovely area, and is within walking distance to the central business district and close to other key areas in Nairobi.
Nellie is also a fantastic cook, and it's definitely worth arranging with her to cook delicious East African cuisine. (She'll even teach you how to make certain dishes if you ask!)
Nellie was a wonderful host. She organized out airport pick up and all travel within Nairobi. She lives in a wonderful gated community in a safe and charming home. Nellie has two guest rooms that she rents. Both share a common bathroom in the hallway. Nellie ensured that we safely traveled within the city. Ingredients for a breakfast were provided to us but not the cooked breakfast itself. Nellie gave us access to the fridge and kitchen, pots and pans, we made our own breakfast and cleaned up as well. We had a good stay in Nairobi.
Nellie will look after you! She has the most beautiful house walking distance from he city center in a very safe neighbourhood. A short walk or public transport will get you to the key metropolitan areas. But above everything - Nellie's hospitality and genuine love for people of different nationalities will stand out to you! If you ask nicely, she might let you sample her legendary african home cooking delights!!!
