I stayed here two nights before and after a hiking and climbing trip to Mt. Kenya. Security appears to be quite thorough here. It is a fairly short walk to ATMs, money exchange and grocery store. Staff are friendly. The upgraded room I had on the first floor past the pool was considerably better than the tower room I had... More

I was sent here on business and had a superior room which was a good size and clean. The staff are helpful and all areas including the pool are clean. A coffee shop and small shop with essentials are useful. The wifi was a little intermittent but available throughout the hotel and is free. Enjoyable stay and will use again... More

Initially I was booked into a standard room, which was rather small and very tired looking. The decor was well outdated, however surprising everything worked. (The AC was not that effecient). On asking for an upgrad, it was provided. The room was a delux room with more leg room and comfortable setting area. Overal again it was an average room... More

The Silver Springs is a very tired hotel, but they are slowly improving it with series of renovations. The rooms at the front of the hotel have had the treatment first and generally well maintained, whereas the rooms in the tower at the back are a little shabby. The food is truly bad, and so should be avoided if possible.

The hotel is centrally located, good service, and good food. I was initially in a standard room, then got upgraded to a suite. Both were ok, nothing great. The suite was larger and had a nicer bathroom, the standard room was rather small. The beds in both rooms were terrible. Overall though, you get what you pay for, and for... More

We spent one night here on our way to Tanzania. We arrived late and left early so I only have a limited opinion. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport which was very convienent. The front desk staff was very courteous and friendly. Our room was very nice and clean. The hotel has a pool and is nicely... More

This property is just so-so. There is nothing really extremely wrong with it but nothing special either. The room was neat and clean, but very small and dated. We ate at the coffee shop for dinner and there was nothing wrong with the food, but not very tasty either. If you can find another hotel that is safe then maybe... More

Location is good but very old hotel and construction. one may find better hotel at this tariff. food is good. Safe place to stay (safety is concern when you travel to kenya). Staff is cooperative, rooms are also very small. Not worth the the cost you pay but i am not sure if other hotels are as safe as this...

Stayed a few days in this hotel, as my planned one-night transfer stay in Nairobi turned into a 5 day malaria stop-over and Silver Springs is very close to the Nairobi Hospital. The atmosphere is typically seventies with an African touch. Friendly and efficient front-office staff, no hassling with luggage and begging for tips. Elevator is solitary, old and slow... More
