I stayed for one night and I don't have any bad thing to say about it, the room was comfortable, clean and well decorated, the staff (entrance, cleaning, restaurant, etc) is absolutely amiable. I had lunch and dinner and was very tasty, also the breakfast buffet is very very good. Highly recommended !!!!!

The hotel convinces with very good service, a modern set up and facilities that makes you feel like you are in a spa environment. The roof top bar with a swimming pool is a real plus. You can work out in a small, but well maintained gym. Bars and restaurants are in the neighbourhood.

Sankara is the best place to stay in Nairobi. I've heard it many times until I tried... and this is very true. Accomodation, service, staff, atmosphere are simply outstanding. I spent an intense week in Nairobi and Sankara really helped me to rest after busy working days. Highlights - Roof bar and pool - excellent - Room decoration - Great... More

First if you have never been to NBO before this may not be the place for you, however if you have been here before, are coming for business, or simply prefer modern Wyndham style accommodations then this is a great spot to consider. I say this simply because it is so modern that it does not have some of the... More

I checked in to the hotel after moving out of Serena. I was told a lot of good things about this property, however I was so disappointed by the lack of service standards and clear thinking by the staff and even duty manager. I had checked in the morning and dropped my bags at the check-in desk to be dropped... More
