Sentrim 680 Nairobi - The security in this hotel is excellent, although somewhat unnerving as there are guards on each floor. We liked the feeling this provided especially downtown Nairobi which, we are told, can be dangerous. We were disappointed in the lack of air-conditioning but we had hot water throughout the day and a private safe in our room.... More

A good hotel in a very good location. Very safe with lots of security. Medium price range. Rooms basic but very clean and recently renovated. A good relaxing bar within the hotel

At least 30 mins for check-in. Rooms are very basic - no aircon, beds very basic. No hot water in the mornings. Free loud music the whole night from a bar/pub nearby. Good luck!

Though very central the 680 is very noisy from the inside with phones ringing at all hours and from the outside thanks to clubs. The staff are very variable and some will openly beg money from you. Bar is full of working girls who can be quite pushy.

Stayed in the 680 for 4 nights while on business in Nairobi. The room was comfortable and had no security problems. Appreciated the guard on every floor. The reception staff could cheer up a bit. The hotel advertised as having smoking rooms - but this is not the case. I had booked a smoking room, but on arrival was told... More

This hotel is extremely basic, the staff were rather unhelpful and we felt unsafe. There was a tented restaurant across the road that played loud music until 3am on a Tuesday night, people opened and slammed doors continuously and the guards on our floor talked loudly and laughed all night which meant we only got 3 hours sleep. Luckily our... More

My second review of the hotel: There are some obvious improvements; renovated bathrooms, new flat screen TVs, new modern fans in rooms, etc. Their breakfast is the same as always, but decent with plenty to choose from. -Staff generally very helpful; request a room on the quiet side of hotel during checkin and they will gladly oblige. -Location is perfect;...
