For the love of this place I am back here again. Wi-fi working well. When I got here yesterday 06/04/2014 I reported about a leak in the bathroom which was wetting the floor. That leak has been sorted and I am sure I will enjoy the remaining 6 days here. The food is nice.

It's a very nice place.. Enjoyed their food and their hospitality.. Tho wi-fi signal is weak for rooms on the top floors. If I am in Nairobi again... I will look no further for accommodation as it is relatively close to JKIA as well as Nakumati Mega for shopping!!!

The rooms are small but other facilities are very good. The quality of staff is very high. The chefs were creative in preparing vegetarian food once the tips were given. The location is excellent. Facility for a safe morning walk due to the proximity to Nyayo Stadium.
