I booked this hotel through Expedia for my wife and when she arrived it was deserted, padlocked, empty. A security guard nearby said it had been shut for a couple months. But it's still showing up on the booking sites!! We called Expedia and have to say they did a good job in handling it, upgrading my wife to another hotel. But I still can't understand how they (and other hotel booking sites) didn't realize it had closed.

We booked this Hotel on Expedia and were scheduled to arrive today. After having difficulties finding the place we stood in front of a locked gate, signage removed- NO sign of a hotel anymore. Phone numbers didn't work anymore either. Strange thing- it is still on websites of other booking sites!!

The reviews I read made this place seem nicer than it was. It was no dump, but there were issues nonetheless. I found the staff a little uncaring and they seemed to dislike the fact that we came and went as frequently as we did, and considering the fact that you had to honk for the gate guard to let you into the property as well as the fact that the bedroom doors had to be slammed shut, well I understand why...but the setup made it difficult to be considerate to other guests because these elements were out of our control. It sort of reminded me of my grandmother's house. The bed was old and sagged in the middle so two people struggled to lay comfortably flat, however the mosquito net was good quality and the blankets were enough to keep us warm. For a budget, this place doesn't need to be avoided, however 'luxury' is not a word I would describe this place with and I would advise those with a bit more to spend to keep searching.

I enjoyed my stay along with my Indian colleagues...Very friendly staff. One of my colleagues was vegetarian and the chef was kind enough to tailor make a recipe to suit us. The internet is super fast. It has a home feel and would recommend it for anyone who wants to get away from the noise and clutter of Nairobi. Ideal for families and couples too.

The staff was great -- very friendly and always happy to assist with any requests. Pretty tasty food, excellent service. Wifi in my room didn't work... It was quite hot and no A/C, only a fan that wasn't very strong. When I was there their credit card machine was down and had to use up all my USD cash, which I needed for visa entry fees for my next destination, so that was a bit of a setback. The room was pretty average, nothing spectacular but will definitely do if you need a place to lay your head during transit.

If you are looking for a place to work and need internet connection, this is the place to go to. The staff is friendly, and Anni the manager will make sure you have everything you need. The breakfast is good, so is the food you can buy for dinner and lunch. It is located in a quit safe area, so ice if you want to avoid the loud downtown area. The drive from the airport is about 45 minuts, with moderate traffic.

Ten reasons for choosing the Eden Gardens: 1. Peace of mind - do business not deal with issues 2. Quiet environment - you are in the suburb not downtown 3. Upscale neighborhood - beautiful layout and nice neighbors 4. High security - no security concerns whatsoever 5. Professional staff- cannot improve on Ann, Monique, Grace, Asman, Sheila, or Phoebe 6. Meeting space- indoors or outside, they make your business meetings successful 7. Easy to find: Lavington on the Convent Road, take the right at the ABC store on Waiyaki, and a left on to Kisaberian and straight up and down the hill and you are there-25 minutes to downtown, UN compound, USAID, Limuru road, Gigeri 8. Mosquito nets: never underestimate the power of the mosquito to ruin your life 9. Breakfast, lunch and dinner: there is absolutely no need to go anywhere--nutritious, filling and delicious meals. 10. The Pool: whether it is to cool off or do exercises or enjoy the sight--it is clean, inviting and refreshing 11. Okay I am over ten, but there's more to say 12. Artwork on the walls -- local beautiful colorful 13. Brew your own coffee--I am a real brewed coffee aficionado and every morning I am welcomed to use my coffee press for rich, brewed lattes. Oh my! 14. The food: fresh vegetables, brown rice, fish, salad, meat, you have to experience it to realize just how wonderfully tasty it is 15. Family accommodations: a whole guesthouse for families, interconnecting suites for families. 16. Hostel environment: informal, comfortable, meet your neighbors, make new business and social friends 17. Daily cleanliness: every single day every part of the hotel is cleaned. And if there are spaces you think should be cleaned, just say the word, and it will be done. (I am a clean freak and when I saw uncleaned corners, I raised the concern and it was taken care of immediately). 18. The ownership: Danish owners understand the needs of international business people and the wants of vacationers--everyone is accommodated 19. Ok, I am going to finally say cost: well you cannot beat the price period, must less for what you get. I am paying $40 a night and sharing a bathroom. I was concerned at first but then I understood that i do not have to deal with a bathroom in my room and I felt totally happy. I like having my toiletries and my needs somewhere other than my room. To save $15 a night just to walk five feet to my "own" bathroom is just wonderful. 20. No smoking policy--thank you! 21. Still have not instituted recycling of bottles and cans--please make mention when you visit. 22. Walking: I am a walker and I walk every day down Chalbi Drive for three or more miles back and forth. Everyone is friendly. Now I want to walk to say hi to the people. 23. Car service: excellent cars and drivers, courteous, knowledgeable, good cars, and please negotiate! 24. Access to food, money exchange-- a half mile down the road is a Nakumatt with everything you need--I walk there and walk back. Nice, no problems. 25. Other Residents: when you find people who care about the same things you do, it makes life really pleasant. 26. Presentation: everything is in its right place at the right time, and if it isn't, just say the word 27. Digital platforms: wireless connections 24/7 28. TV: all the channels from all the countries 29. Service: frankly, better than the Hilton or the Laica Regency; why? Because they mean it and you are on the ground floor and can walk around and simply be yourself. 30. Security: I am a businesswoman and I care about my security. Once you are here, everyone in the neighborhood looks out for you. Not just at the hotel but the security guards everywhere. they get to know you. Each person is everyone's responsibility. Find that downtown if you can.

Eden Garden has simple rooms, but it has very friendly staff and is situated in a quiet and safe part of Nairobi. Everything you need is near: restaurant (also in Eden Garden), supermarket, bank... The staff also organized well my airport transfer.

I wouldn’t say that Eden Gardens is for a “luxuru seeker” but it is a place that gave me the sence of “being at home” Smiling and warm people, always found a way to make me feel comfortable and relaxed… Wonderful surroundings and a lovely pool…
