Stayed for one night: after an evening arrival needed a place to spend the night before the safari. The hotel is located somewhere in the center, but in a small, narrow street. Did not have the desire to walk, so the dinner went to Carnivore. The room is small, do not turn around a couple times. Tiny bathroom, no towels.... More

This has to be one of the worst hotels I've stayed in, fortunately it was only one night, a stopover on the way to the Masi Mara. Recommended by the taxi driver as central and value for money, which it was, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. The area is ghetto like and noisy throught... More
