  • 2.0.Poor

    Orchid has room to improve!

    Hosts phone etiquette quite unreceptive...felt like it was an interruption...! I stayed at a another location opposite the sites location address...not what i had seen on the site. At check out, she insisted i had not made a payment. She was clueless, and after a hectic 20 min or so...she confirmed the payment had hit her account. WIFI unavailable, TV buffered all the while, couldn't work. Water heater is disfunctional...a very unpleasant experience.

    The place was clean but not very private. The receptionist on site kept knocking at the door and intruding. Otherwise, it's a cute little place.

    This property feels like home, not like a hotel. The rooms are very clean, and the staff extremely friendly - in addition to being wonderful cooks!. The property is very well located in Gigiri - walking distance to UN and shops. This is my second stay. I come regularly to Nairobi and have tried many hotels/B&B/homes around Gigiri. This is my best find and I will stick to it in the future. There is nothing that I disliked about the property.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Due to flight delays I was only able to stay one night instead of the two nights I originally booked. I called the hotel and told them this as soon as I was aware I couldn’t get there for my original check in date. I was told “no problem we will cancel your first night”. They have charged me for two nights even though I was only there one.

    Orchid Homes was like a home away from home. It was quiet, peaceful, clean, relaxing, and homey. The staff were great and accommodating for breakfast hours, kitchen use, printing, and just overall friendly. We stayed a week after adopting our son from Burundi and it gave us a secluded calm safe place to spend the week while we had medical and visa appointments! Walking distance from the IOM clinic, Village Market Mall, and US embassy. Pool and yard were great for relaxing and playtime! If you don't want the hustle and bustle and cost of a big fancy hotel, this is your place! Amazing!
