I was accommodated at Kije Place together with my colleagues for a week during our Hands-on NMR Training at the University of Nairobi and I must say we had a great experience.

The hotel has a welcoming staff who make the place so hospitable right from the security, the receptionist, the chefs and those doing the cleaning. The hotel is quiet; contrary to the hustle and bustle of the city and at some point, I often forgot that I was in the heart of Nairobi City.

The restaurant at the rooftop offers a panoramic view of the city and we enjoyed the night view of Nairobi City during our supper. We were attended to by Levi, Joan and Lilian and the trio have amazing personalities. They are friendly and one naturally loves them.

Given the cleanliness of the rooms and the freshness of the place, I will recommend Kije Place for anybody looking forward to enjoying their stay in the city. I will love to visit the hotel again.

Thank you

The Hotel is very cool, located at the centre of Nairobi CBD, it is easily accessible and makes you stay in Nairobi very convenient whenever you wish to explore the city. The restaurant offers a blend of African and Western cuisines prepared to delight your taste buds.

The Hotel rooms are well up to a modern standard, although some rooms can be small, relatively they retain their standard and offer great value for money. Be willing to take the top tier rooms for a great experience.

This is an excellent hotel suitable for your various needs.

I stayed at Kije place for 3 weeks in June 2023 and had a great experience. It was clean, safe, and affordable, in the heart of Nairobi CBD. Staff were excellent and really helped to make me feel at home. The lounge and restaurant were both excellent as well. I'll be back next time I'm in Nairobi.

I walked up to the receptionist at around 1am. I had no booking. I asked for a room. The receptionist hesitated for a second and said there was a room available. She excused herself and came back after 15 minutes. She then led me to a small room that smelled like a brothel. Extremely strong feminine perfume. The room was devoid of basic items like toilet tissue and fresh towels. There were strands of human hair between the sheets. It looked and smelled like the room had been used for some quickie. I never got a receipt for my stay. Needless to say I did not sleep on the bed and I left at the crack of dawn.

I hope now they have a generator for power back up

Rooms are very small and simple they are not exactly the same as shown on the pictures
No toiletries in the rooms except for paper. Mine didn't even have a toilet brush

I didn't know about this place, I was looking for an affordable, but clean place to stay for some days as I ran my errands in the City.

Someone in a nearby hotel recommended this place based on my need.

When you enter Kije place, the ambiance of the reception tells it all. The security team is very welcoming, and the Staff is very polite, cooperative, patient, and friendly.

The rooms are perfectly clean, a place in the heart of the city but surprisingly very quiet.
You get to enjoy the surrounding amenities as it is next to Cjs, G&R Hotel, Naivas Hazina Trade Center etc.

The place was beyond my expectation.

I will definitely visit this place again nd again.

THis is my Nest in Nairobi.

Than kyou
