Speke is very well located. However the traffic around that area can be a nightmare at times. Two shopping malls are nearby - the Oasis mall and Garden city mall. There are also various other hotels and hang out places along the same street near speke.
The restaurants on the ground floor, specially the Indian resto, serve really great food although it's on the high side. However, a branch did fell of the huge tree into the open seating area while I was there. Fortunately no one got injured!
Lots of storks can be seen on the trees opposite the hotels.
Overall - great hotel, great location and great food!
