Despite having booked a stay over 3 months in advance we were forced to pay a "walk-in" rate of $770 USD...far higher than the advertised online book-now-pay-later rate of $525 USD which we were expecting to pay. The manager was useless and I believe we were scammed and either manager or someone else gets the extra $250 we payed. But it was 2am when we arrived from international flight so I payed. TOTAL SCAM.

I absolutely recommend This hotel because, it has continued to hold its high standards every time I visit. Good Job Hemingways. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Perfect Pre-safari Hotel Stay
My husband, two grown sons and I stayed at Hemmingway's for one night before our trip to a safari camp. We arrived after flying overnight from the U.S., and the hotel is the perfect place to unwind after a long flight. The suites are lovely, and the food was outstanding. We ate each meal outside, and the terrace was lit up beautifully at night. We enjoyed spa services and cocktails at the bar. We were assigned a butler, who was on-call for anything we needed (we did ask for extra bottled water and a yoga mat). It really is the perfect place to stay pre or post safari.
August 2021 - two night stay. My partner and I stayed at Hemingways Nairobi for a post safari break before international travel. My partner is a Hyatt Globalist and booked the property using WOH points. Excellent points value at 30,000 points/night. As this is a SLH property we were pleasantly surprised that they honored Globalist status with a room upgrade. free breakfast, and late check out offers. Some Hyatt SLH's don't honor top status as per Hyatt T&C's, so our expectations were minimal and my partner was happy to be recognized for her loyalty status. From entry to the very secure property to our departure we absolutely enjoyed ever aspect of our stay. The staff were friendly, helpful, and professional. The hotel and grounds are immaculate. We only left the property once for a concierge arranged visit to the Karen Blixen Museum as our intent was to chill and enjoy. Very quiet atmosphere when compared to our hectic, noisy hotel location in central Nairobi during our pre-safari visit. Very service oriented property - room butler assigned was efficient and unobtrusive, bar and dining room staff attentive, reception staff handled our on site Covid pre flight tests perfectly. We enjoyed evening drinks in the lounge and dined breakfast and dinner in the Brassiere restaurant. Our butler served coffee and snacks in the afternoon on our balcony. Prices were commensurate with other luxury stays in Kenya and cuisine was great quality. Our room (the Bogart Suite) was very comfortable. Spacious size suite at 800+ sq ft, balcony with a view of the Ngong Hills, spacious bathroom and walkin closet. Room included soft drinks, snacks, and fruit platter. Excellent bedding and pillows on request made for comfortable sleep. Everything was in excellent order and well maintained, and stocked with quality amenities. Our compliments to the Hemingway staff for a very relaxing stay and recognizing my partner as Globalist. I highly recommend this luxury property while visiting the Nairobi suburbs. A bit of a drive to the airport as Nairobi traffic is horrible but minutes from the Blixen and other attractions in Karen.
Amazing stay at this beautiful property
I was in Nairobi for a short business trip with my associate George. The trip had to be extended and we needed a place to stay for a couple of nights, near our place of business as we had already checked out of our hotel. We had driven past this place earlier so decided to see if they would have any rooms. Luckily they had 2 rooms available so we checked in. This is really lovely property in very way. We made the most of our stay by enjoying the bar upstairs and also the restaurant downstairs. They organised a safari to the Nairobi National park which was bonus as it wasn't planned at all. We were lucky enough to see almost all the wild life there. My friend George had his birthday while we stayed there and we managed to have a good celebration as they have a lovely Jazz music lunch on Sundays. Would love to visit again and stay at this
