This place is pretty basic but comfortable and very good value. If you're arriving in Nairobi from Arusha on the Riverside shuttle the location is unbeatable, being just across the road from where the bus stops. Rooms are available on a B&B or bed-only basis. We were departing at 4am so didn't get to try breakfast but if it is... More

The hotel was clean and next to the shuttle station to Arusha. People there were very nice. Considering that it is a low budget, no frills it was ok

Key points for me: - Each time we stayed we opted for a Superior Room. They seemed a bit bigger, and had a bigger bed - Rooms were always spotlessly clean - We did not... More

I intermittently stayed here for a week, in January. I was very pleased to find such a reasonably priced hotel in such a central location with good security. I stayed in a basic twin, which was clean enough, with hot showers and comfy beds. The reception staff were reasonably friendly, but I also chatted to the chamber maids who were... More

This place is very convenient if your just passing through Nairobi. Its right next to the bus station and in a good walking location of Nairobi. The staff was so nice and friendly (as all of Kenya is). Expect what you pay for, very basic rooms.

The rooms are not bad and there's almost no noise front or back of the building. Terrible pillows though...hard seat cushions actually...they were supposedly talking about replacing them with real pillows soon but check to confirm. Kind of cheap of them to only offer hot water between 6:00-8:00 AM and 6:00-9:00 PM. And here's the thing...the hot water boiler was... More
