Travel Blogs from Nairobi
Seit gestern sind wir direkt in Nairobi ... wir hatten uns entschlossen, ein paar Tage vor der Abfahrt nach Mombasa in der Stadt zu verbringen. Auch wenn wir schon öfters hier waren, aber irgendwie hatten wir immer noch nicht so viel von der Stadt gesehen. Und durch eine Verkettung ei***** Zufälle sind wir dann gestern wieder im Hotel Kipepeo …
Although I was only in Nairobi for a day the first thing you realise is how manic the place is. The main road into the city has between three and four lanes of traffic in each direction (depending on how many cars can squeeze in) and during rush hour on a Friday evening they turn the traffic lights off!! Everyone tries to push in front of other …
Our first stay is in Nairobi for a few days.... The mosquito story starts. There are only two in the room and I manage to kill one and don't bother about the other. I am attacked in my face 5 times and look terrible the next morning. That's why I can't sleep for long hours. Besides, it is so hot compared to my home country and I need to remove the …
... thought everyone got their own pizza). We all laughed and had a great time. The pizza cost us $300 and it was money well spent.
After dinner, the kids played with their balloons, took pictures and sat on our laps talking, but the real fun began after dark when Emily brought out her glow sticks, which of course the children had never seen (and the adults). We had enough for everyone to get four each, and when we left, we could see ...
... and they had a small fire going inside so the air was
smoky. I was working hard to be grateful and sit and talk with the man whose
home it was and the chief’s son who invited me in, but I was pretty anxious to
get out. The home has rooms or cubbies where people and animals sleep, about 2
feet tall going deep into the walls of the home. They sleep on a piece of cow

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kipepeo Nairobi
We stayed there the second time, it's ok for a few days, the room are clean, but rather small, the bathroom is ok, but not the way we would like it, at least the shower is hot :) The restaurant is also ok, breakfast .. oh well ... and dinner, typical "african restaurant food", which is good. But neither breakfast nor dinner are included, you pay seperately. Nice flair to the hotel the way it's build. A plus is the location, not to far to the city center, walking distance, but the road infront is rather noisy. Security service in the hotel, gives you a save feeling. The staff is friendly.
All together i recommend the hotel for short stays ... 1 or 2 nights, because there might be cheaper places with the same standard.
