the hotel is 30 minutes from the airport and yes as other have said, this hotel is only good for an over night stay while waiting for your next flight. area surrounding the hotel is not so nice and probably not safe to walk around. taxis are available at the parking lot, you must negotiate with the driver since there is no metered taxis. I only stayed here for several hours before moving to a training camp near the airport. room is sub standard, luckily the hot water runs well in the bathroom. breakfast menu was quite limited, but the taste was actually good. I had a red eye flight from Istanbul so I arrived at the hotel at 3 AM and they charged me for 1.5 day rate which cost me USD 150. With all the facility of a B&B, this is definitely overpriced.
I'd rather stay at one of the hotels at the downtown if I have a next chance to visit Nairobi.
