Hemingways Nairobi is one the city’s slickest hotels where polished marble bathrooms are standard and the butler service discreetly notes your preferred drinks. Built on large grounds overlooking the Ngong Hills in the upscale neighbourhood of Karen, it offers a great stopover on a Kenya safari. Key attractions like the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe Centre are nearby.
Rooms are spacious and well appointed with modern amenities such as televisions, air conditioning and Wi-Fi. Two restaurants serve delicious menus conjured up from excellent local produce while the cellar not only proffers good wines but a cosy place to have supper. The swimming pool, spa and gym await in the morning to undo the indulgence of the night before!
