Hemingways Nairobi is an elegant boutique hotel situated in Nairobi's peaceful Karen residential area, with magnificent views of the nearby Ngong Hills and the property's 8 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens. The property is just 30 km from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and 15 km from Wilson Airport.
The location of Hemingways Nairobi is perfect to explore the Nairobi National Park, which is home to large herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe, rhino, cheetah, and a large number of lions - all living wild within 20 minutes of the busy city. The Elephant Orphanage is very close, where visitors have the unique opportunity to experience the feeding of baby orphaned elephants and rhinos up close, and so is the Giraffe Centre, again where visitors can photograph and feed the giraffe. Or take a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum, Karen Blixen's former home, and relive your memories of both the book and the film 'Out of Africa'.
The relaxed Hemingways Nairobi Brasserie is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Private dining can also be arranged for guests if required. Afternoon tea can also be enjoyed on the terrace. The Hemingways Bar is a contemporary venue with the ambience and comfort of a private club.
The Hemingway Spa offes a range of facial and body treatments. There is also a heated swimming pool and gym which is open 7 days a week.

Each bedroom is approximately 80 square metres and has a private balcony overlooking the iconic silhouette of the Ngong Hills. The décor feature muted colours and textured fabric while subtle touches of brass, mahogany and leather add to the colonial grandeur of the beautifully finished rooms. Some of the rooms interconnect, making this ideal for families.
The guest attention is personal and sincere, offering a seamless service from the moment you arrive to when you depart. Your dedicated butler will be available all the time, offering a personalised, bespoke service with the traditional values of discretion and convenience.
