Listing Reviews Reviews of Margpher Guest House - Home away from home

Best accomodations for a very low price!
  Jen -- Jan 19, 2011 12:57 pm
I loved the friendliness and hospitality of the owners. I was impressed by how clean the rooms were. Margaret cooked us a traditional Swahili meal and it was wonderful. Breakfast was great too! I'd recommend Margpher Guest House to anyone on a budget who wants to stay in a peaceful, quiet, and safe neighborhood. ... more

Wonderful experience
  Mar 06, 2010 
We stayed at Margpher Guest as we were attending a wedding in Karen Blixen on 03/6. Being new to Nairobi, Magpher Guest Hse arranged for our oick up from the airport to the Guest House. Upon arrival at the guest house, we were greeted with fresh beverages. The guest house was very clean, and everyone made my husband and I feel very welcome. It was truely home away from home. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Nairobi ... more

Testimonials

My husband and I stayed at Margpher Guest House before we connected our flight to go on Safari to Maasai Mara. The staff at Margpher House were great. The place was very clean and the food was really good. It was definetely worth it.
Peter and Adriene Berg

I stayed at Margpher House as an exchange student from the US. My stay was actually 6 months. It felt like a home away from home. Everyone was really nice and put so much effort into ensuring my stay was comfortable. They have a really good chef who prepared delicious meals. I was sad to leave Nairobi, especially the new friends I had made at Margpher Guest House. After graduation I plan to visit again and bring my friends.
Lorraine - USA

I just want to say "Thank you" so much to the staff at Margpher Guest House. I arrived in Nairobi on April 3rd from the UK. I was very exhausted after an 8 hour flight, but Margpher House arranged for my pickup from the airport and welcomed me very warmly. Thank you so much for the hospitality you showed me when I was there.
