We stayed at 680 on New Years Eve for 1 night, on route to Malindi. Left room with luggage opened on the bed and went across the street for a New Year drink. The only time we left our luggage un=attended was here in our room. Management would not help us in anyway. Also 680 over-charged us, last year was... More

This hotel was absolutely awful! The room was basic and the beds had tatty, grubby blankets over them that looked like they could do with a good wash. The hotel staff (with the exception of one porter) were unpleasant and unhelpful. The lady who served us in the restaurant could not explain the food on the menu - despite there... More

This hotel was utter misery. It was filthy and obscenely smelly - some combination of rotting, stale smoke, and unidentifiable "bad". I put my hand on the underside of the front ledge of the desk drawer and it came away sticky as if covered in honey... but it wasn't honey. The service was terrible, we found it nearly impossible to... More

During our extended stay with over 100 other party members I stayed in a variety of rooms. The refurbished rooms on the 5th and 6th floor were a considerable improvement on the other floors, but be very careful when booking to ask for a room on the "quiet" side of the hotel. The all night music from Tuskys across the... More

I travelled to Nairobi for a vacation with my wife, and we stayed in 680. It is situated in the middle of the City, near to everything. I mean shops, restaurants, tour operator etc. For the cost 80-100 USD, i should say it was a great experience. There is good security. Every floor has a security. People are friendly, and... More

Very basic rooms that are kind of down market. Very secure hotel with a watchman on every floor. Our room had a double bed, a small TV, and some hotel furniture from the 1970s. The bathroom has a shower just barely large enough to turn around in. The most basic room at a mid-range price. I cannot really recommend this... More

The rooms are very dingy and ill-equipped. We did not have a table fan in our room, and got it after repeatedly prodding the staff. The surroundings are unsafe, and frequented by drunk men and prosts soliciting. The hotel itself has an open noisy casino and so for all these reasons it's definitely not a family place. We had been... More
