We stayed in a double ensuite room for a couple of nights upon arrival in Nairobi. We thought that USD$50 was too much for the room and that the location was not great for us, hence we did not stay longer as originally planned.
The room we had was not spacious but adequate. It was quite rundown for the price range but the room was reasonably clean. There were no cupboards or a safe in which we could lock our valuables. The wifi worked fairly well in the bar area and there was nice outdoor seating.
Although it is located in a nice neighbourhood, we felt quite isolated out there. This is the main reason we didn't stay for longer. We didn't have our own vehicle and were told by staff that it wasn't a good idea to walk around. However it's location was rubbish for picking up taxis or public transport on the fly. Hence we were initially reliant on taxis that were called by the camp to go anywhere. Interestingly enough, the taxis we caught back were often cheaper than the ones the camp had called for us.
