Must say I really enjoyed my stay here, great food, nice cold beer, awesome service and fantastic rooms. Very nice spot for both tourists and business travelers alike due to being between the two airports, on main road and friendly staff. Pity the game in the park didn't tow the line :-)

Pleasant surprise in the city in the sun away from the congested city centre. The employees are polite, helpful and cooperative. The services are slow but can be improved. The bar area over looks Nairobi game park; a great scenery. The rooms are fine for the price one pays. Generally, a good place for travelers or businessmen on transit or... More

The rooms are very thoughtful and bright and for Africa are a very good standard with satellite tv. You are right next to a game reserve so have a good chance of seeing some wildlife from your room. The restaurant is very good and clean and modern. At the bar a glass of wine was only about three pounds which... More

We stayed here in a park facing room (more expensive but beautiful views) after an 8 day camping trip around Kenya; arriving here was like stepping into heaven after 8 days of camping and long journeys it was perfect. Everything from the welcome at the main entrance to the quick and friendly service at reception with fresh fruit juice and... More

The hotel has good looking and design. It is near airport and just across Airtel Parkside Towers. You can order rooms that has beautiful view to Nairobi national park. The room has excellent bed, television, air-conditioner, and bath room. The minus points are bad wi-fi signal and experienced that the hot water from shower suddenly stops when being used. Staffs...

We had some time on our hands before our flight back to the UK and fancied a meal. Our travel company in Kenya suggested the restaurant in this hotel and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and polite (as were most of the people we came into contact with during our holiday). The food was delicious and quite... More

We had some hours to kill while waiting for a flight and were delighted to spend them here....asleep. So, we didn't get to enjoy the dining. Staff was helpful and smiling. Rooms modest in size but nice quality. Baths the same. Worth a stay, wish we had stayed longer.

We stayed here due the close proximity of the hotel to the airport. We were in a club room which was the only room large enough to put an extra bed in. It had a very small balcony overlooking the national park. No animals, only one ostrich which was very far away. The room was of reasonable size. Didn't like... More

We stayed at this hotel prior and after our safari trip. It's a nice, new hotel. Located right next to the park reserve, with great views and occasional animals. It's located near the airport, so no hassles with Nairobi traffic. Kid friendly with a pool. Service did vary some - mostly very good, but some slow meal service. But food... More

Have stayed at this hotel twice, each time the service was exceptional. The restaurant overlooking the park is wonderful. There is no guarantee you will see animals each and every time, but none the less the view is incredible. Hotel is situated in close proximity to the airport- which is a definite plus in Nairobi considering traffic if you are... More
