The hotel was a model of good old-fashioned courtesy and service. It was a delightful place to stay with a wonderful atmosphere and lovely food. A really refreshing stay. We were particularly pleased with the warmth of welcome and the service in the poolside restaurant

This hotel is truly a remarkable find in Nairobi. If we ever have the opportunity to travel... More

We spent one night there upon arrival in Nairobi. Nice clean room with comfortable bed. Restaurant has wonderful breakfast selection and is situated in a lovely courtyard with pool and treed grounds. The staff is very welcoming and helpful, would definitely return if opportunity presents itself.

We had two great days at the hotel. The employees were absolutely amazing - helpful and welcoming. The surroundings of the hotel were beautiful and enjoyable. The food was of high quality and the room was cleaned properly every day. We can really recommend this hotel.

Having experiences stays in hotels throughout the world, I would rank this as among the best. It punches well above its weight. The staff are well trained and seem to derive job satisfaction. Congratulations to all the staff.

From their website Southern Sun doesn’t look like an anonymous corporate hotel. Although the hotel caters for business travellers and accommodates big meetings and conferences, it doesn't have the synthetic, impersonal feel of many corporate hotels.
