Given the close proximity to the Central business district of Nairobi yet a safe enough distance from the noisy city, this is a perfect choice for holding conferences and workshops. My experience has been that most foreigners find it quite easy to access from town and the fact that they can walk to the BCD to shop around and enjoy... More

Awesome service, everybody is very kind and willing to help. The restaurant prepares exquisite dishes although it's pretty expensive. Rooms are comfortable. Walking distance to museums and city center make it a good place to stay.

What captures my attention in this hotel is traveler-friendly accommodation rates and friendly staff. Just a distance away from but good for city views and shopping. It is strategically located for peaceful but urban stay.
