I was looking forward to this stay, but it surpassed even my high expectations. What a view! And the modernity of the place is exceptional. It is a new hotel and it feels like it. Superb upkeep. Attentive staff. I will absolutely be back again if my travels take me to Kenya. Keep up the great work!

My family and I visited Nairobi on a mission trip with Feed The Children on September 11-16th. We had a slight hiccup at check in as the front desk attendant was not very familiar with processing groups. In addition, I advise exchanging money somewhere other than the front desk. Although they have a bank upstairs it was sometimes difficult to... More

Checkin – Was relatively smooth. Painful part was that they insist of making photo copies of the passports of all guests. Seems overkill. Rooms – Well appointed rooms, clean and practical. Very modern and contemporary looking furniture. The bathroom had both a shower and a bathtub. Bit overkill but not complaining. The water in the sink seemed to have great... More
