I was very comfortable the hotel is well accessible to the road there is security and their services are very good. It is located near four shopping moles rooms and bathroom are very clean. If you want to access to Nairobi town its just few minutes away, The Nairobi Museum is few minutes drive.

I liked the special... More

The Sankara Nairobi is a well run and comfortable hotel. Front desk welcome is nicely executed and security procedures are in place without being obtrusive, Rooms are a good size, functionally designed and quiet. Only criticism would be that the carpets and upholstery is showing its age with lots of stains. Public spaces in the hotel feature all kinds of... More

Really outstanding food - especially the wonderful variety and originality of the salads; excellent conference room with very responsive service; but I really wish the Sankara would manage the parking fee/voucher process better. When there is a problem - which too often there is - the front desk people lack the authority to resolve it.

Clean rooms, friendly staff and central. Consistent great service on all occasions i have stayed with them. Great for business and near the arcades in case you are travelling with a child. The staff were able to pint out a hospital with personal recommendation.
