I've just returned after spending a week (7-14th September 2012) in Nairobi visiting my daughter. Nairobi can be a little overwhelming but I was immediately put at ease when I arrived and new immediately that this was an island of peace and quiet. The Sun Room was well appointed and everything worked as it should, from free wi-fi to hot showers. Calystus, the manager, couldn't have been more helpful it what is, in reality, a converted private residence now housing only guests. Free tea and coffee on tap meant that I could wander into the kitchen 24 hours and help myself. During my stay there were several other guests, also 'long' stayers, and we got to know each other and were able to offer informal advice, share stories and generally chat. I came and went at odd hours and a small bell to alert the ground-staff would have been helful but this wasn't a big deal in the scheme of things. Definitely gets my vote and I will be staying there on my next trip out. When you stay, take an early evening tea/beer/wine and watch the monkeys in the trees - superb!
