An award-winning boutique hotel in the quiet suburb of Karen, Hemingways Nairobi Hotel offers attentive personal service and world-class accommodations.
The spacious, airy rooms here are adorned not only with contemporary chic furnishings but soft, natural light from high vaulted ceilings and large windows. These lovely rooms feature beds dressed in Egyptian cotton linens and furniture made of brass, mahogany, and leather which bear reference to the classic elegance of vintage East African safaris, the kind Hemingway took himself. Each room includes a large bathroom lined with hand cut Italian marble, walk-in wardrobe, double vanity, separate toilet, bath, and shower. An attentive butler is on hand to rustle up a treat from the pantry and tend to the artisan bouquets of fresh roses in the room. Other luxury amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, 40” LED television, dual telephone lines, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, personalized bar, in-room safe, bathrobe and slippers, and an overnight kit. The view of the Ngong Hills beyond the balustrade of the private balcony is befitting of Hemingway’s The Green Hills of Africa.
Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, is a modern and multi-ethnic metropolis and home to more than 4 million people. Once a swamp area, the word Nairobi means cool waters in Maasai, it became the capital of the British East Africa Protectorate. Now it’s a cosmopolitan and culturally vibrant city and boasts many theaters, concerts, and fine dining as well as plenty of clubs, casinos, coffee shops and malls to keep the global traveler entertained. Just outside the city is Nairobi National Park home to large herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe, lion, cheetah, hippo, rhino, and over 400 species of bird life. Visitors can go on the Nairobi Safari Walk, an educational center to make people aware of wildlife and habitat conservation.
