they have around 10 pool tables, well maintained, and during daytime it is quiet and peacefull there, so check it out, its 70ksh to 100ksh for a game, and its the best in Nairobi, their food variety is not all that good, prices are average for a club, it only attracts me because of the Pool tables :)

Usually I have to stay in traditional Hotels around the world. When I'm in Nairobi I always choose my favourite hotel - K1. Noisy location, clean, nicely located and everything is happening outside your door. Nice, friendly staff. I continue to come back. Best value place if you don't need a quiet place to sleep.

I only got to learn of this hotel late. I have been to the Restaurant a dozen times and I always enjoy the drinks and food there. I also enjoy the screens for watching football. The food I have eaten there has been well cooked, except one day when I believe the chef accidentally spilled chilli on my food. I... More

I've stayed here several times now and can't fault the rooms which are excellent value at around 2,000 shillings a night (under £18 Sterling - I'm English), clean and neat and with ensuite showers & even gel. A bit like a Kenyan version of the UK Travelodge. They are a little worn but adequate for the money with colour TV... More

This is an odd little hotel. It is in Westlands (busy, leafy, mostly Asian, outskirts of Nairobi) and set at the end of a side road . The hotel itself has two main floors. Some of the rooms look like a 1960's movie set with traffic cone orange plastic chairs and formica desks. I have stayed here three times in... More

I recently attended a two week seminar in nairobi and spent my entire stay at this hotel. The rooms were quite affordable, clean and simple. The best part was that it is a few minutes from town and it has very nice bars. the food was also quite good. i definitely recommend this hotel for it's 'all-under-a-roof' services!!

It was resonably priced and the staff were good until i left my possesions for their safe keeping and they switched my dollars with fake ones. Then my nightmare began in nairobi the staff were not friendly anymore and were uncooparative. The kenyan police were nice but am... More
