I'm not usually so enthusiastic about a hotel but this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at! The rooms are decorated in a modern African style and the architecture of the building is unique to say the least. It is connected to a western-style shopping mall (The Village Market) and is located within the diplomatic/consular district. There was ample security and excellent service (if not a little slow at times in the restaurant). My co-worker did get a room on the bottom level which was a little close to the elevator and kitchen (noisy) but this was remedied immediately upon asking. My room, on the other hand, was perfectly quiet.
The bed was comfy, staff were very friendly, food was good, there were several lounges/bars, they do currency exchange on site, and the pool was beautiful.
One con - it seemed impossible to get a la carte menu options in the restaurant - we had to eat buffet the whole time we were there - they did say they were switching to a la carte the next day - I don't know if this is a permanent change or if they just do buffet on certain days (?)
I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveler staying in Nairobi.
