This was a wonderful hotel! Admittedly I was only there 3 1/2 hours, just to freshen up between flights coming into Nairobi and then back to the airport for a flight to Kilgari.

The hotel is near the airport and the rooms are clean... but they never turned up for airport pick-up, breakfast was terrible (but it was available at 5am!) and the price does not justify the service.
