Staff very attuned to customer needs, and very helpful. Business Center staff went out of the way to call an airline when online check-in was not functioning properly. Relaxing bars and very good breakfast spread. Prompt airport pick-up and drop-off, at a decent price. When I had to travel to Burundi and Tanzania for a couple of days, hotel cheerfully... More

Sankara is very luxurious! The amenities and services make you feel welcome and fully accomodated. Location was perfect. Close to my office, right next to the Sarit center and within walking distance to Westgate shopping center. The food at the main restaurant was well prepared and very delicious. The morning buffet was a great idea, but i would have liked... More

Stayed on a business trip as close to my office. Very modern hotel with great bars and restaurants (very small though, so book tables in advance). Pool on the seventh floor. Rooms very nice with Internet and international TV. Great bathrooms. For rooms think about an upscale Marriott Recommended

My husband and I stayed at the beautiful Sankara in December before and after our safari. It was a wonderful start and finish to our journey. The rooms are spacious, comfy beds and massive washrooms (with great bath products which are handy to take along on safari). The service was fantastic we had a small issue with our wake up... More

After 2 weeks camping in Kenya & Uganda, we decided on a night of luxury at Sankara and what a good move! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly; the decor is great, especially the amazing paintings all over the place; the room was huge and equipped with everything you can think of + more you probably wouldnt (eg. velvet...

I loved this hotel. I was only there overnight but i was treated like a queen and the room i booked came with a complimentary breakfast which was really good. The room was more that spacious and very clean. In fact everything looked new (probably because the hotel opened in the last 28mnths). I was very impressed with the rooftop... More

We stayed at Sankara three times in December, between trips to the East Coast and Maasai Mara. Although it was on the opposite side of the city center from the airport traffic was not an issue because our flights were either on Sunday or very early in the morning. When we first arrived late, hungry, and tired the staff at... More

The hotel staff was very helpful and courteous. Food was good but at times we had to wait for our waffles/eggs at breakfast. We had a trouble with our hotel rates and the staff at front desk was most patient to understand our problem and help us sort it out. Taxis near the hotel can charge you excess (but thats... More

We visited the roof top bar in the evening for drinks and shisha, the view is amazing and i love the glass bridge! Great place to go with a group of friends and the crowd was 25+. I heard the spa is amazing and will book there next time.

I travel extensively for work and pleasure and I enjoy the creature comforts, for me excellent food can overcome almost any other shortcoming a hotel might have. If your tummy is full and happy, the noisy neighbor is less of a problem. Sankara is excellent in all respects, the food is amazing, decor and service excellent, and the gym has... More
