The food and service are well above average. While NYC prices, or more, the wine list is well above other spots at a similar price point. Gym is also very nice.

Also internet access was very good & free (which it should be in all hotels, but often isn't). It was... More

However, this hotel (based on the standards that I have seen and experienced in Kenya) deserves a 4 1/2. The following is a brief summary of the quality of this hotel. Safety: This is on... More
