Wow. Was I blown away after entering the hotel. There is still some construction work going on outside but the inside is fantastic. Spent a few nights and enjoyed the experience. Great service, lovely food, very clean and comfortable rooms. Wifi available and ash to log in. Great staff, always willing to help. The breakfast selection was very nice and... More

This hotel pays attention to detail; free wifi in the rooms, classy interior design, great service, great restaurants, good location, and a nice rooftop bar/lounge/pool area. Weekend rates are excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again.

Rooms are so beautiful and comfortable, and staff very friendly..my only suggestion would be to have some children channels on tv....you had to buy movies because they have nothing for my kids to watch... Love it! (Also so close to shopping malls in... More

After a long drive from the airport in chaotic traffic, and having got into the lobby having gone through airport style security it was relaxing to be in a safe and comfortable hotel. Check in was efficient and it was a few minutes before I was in my room. The bed was large and inviting. The bathroom layout was unusual... More

What really sold me on the place was the little soapstone animals in lieu of chocolates with the turndown service. Too cute! Good little gym; quiet air conditioning fully guest-controlled (just as well, since it's often not really necessary in Nairobi); fast service when my room safe needed its battery replaced; an easy walk to local malls; attentive concierge and...

We stayed at this hotel twice over the last 2 weeks. Once when we arrived in Nairobi for the start of our honeymoon and then again before we left Kenya on the flight to Zurich. On our first stay we booked the honeymoon special and had an absolutely marvelous suite with a gigantic bathroom. We loved the free standing tub!... More

The reception is very nice and efficient, my room was spacious with nice touches to make the stay more pleasant (like instead of the usual gummi bears on the pillow you find a different stone carved animal (rhinos, zebras, ...).
