This is a very luxurious hotel by any standard, top international hotel. It's an airport hotel and the area isn't very nice, but... why leave? The hotel borders to a game park, and the views from the outside (and inside) sitting areas is wonderful. Visit their website to have a look and enjoy some awesome african instrumental music as background... More

I did not actually stay here but we stopped to have breakfast after a long flight and enroute to Samburu, on 7th June this year. The advantage of this hotel is obvious. It is the closest top hotel to the airport which saves you the time it takes to reach some of the hotels in the CBD thanks to Nairobi's... More
