Stayed here for 1 night. This is not a five star hotel by any means. WiFi did not work in the rooms and after dealing with two (2) IT managers, I was told that it was my device that was the problem. I was offered the business center at no charge; however, the internet speed was slow and the keyboards... More

I got a room that faces Uhuru & Central parks. As the sun set over the park, it was a very relaxing experience. This was a business stay so I was most impressed by the buffet dinner and the service given to us. The rooms are clean, and very comfortable. The breakfast was the usual hotel fare, so not much...

The hotel is conveniently located. Beautiful idea, comfortable inner courtyard, beautiful summit club. However the hotel requires renovation it looks like a wild orchard. Carpets and curtains resemble thin coating of bygone luxury. Renovation has already begun, but at night i was awakened by the pungent smell of paint. The staff is absolutely sluggishness and wear old torn clothes. But... More

Centrally located in the up-market end of town (Nairobi CBD). Multi-layered security evident giving you peace of mind during the entire stay. Food is ok and the deserts are absolutely amazing. The staff at the reception desk was very helpful and professional.

Great stay at clean, central location in town. Food was excellent, I had evening and morning Buffett. Only thing that needs update was tv in room. I had almost forgot about those old type TV sets. Lots of security.

It has excellent services; breakfast was good. I was in this hotel on transit travel. The has beautiful design with varieties of shops and restaurants, a swimming pool at the atrium level, nice view of the city and the park along Uhuru highway. The location is in a calm place.
