We initially were going to stay at one of the more expensive hotels in Nairobi, but they were sold out ~ 2 weeks prior to our trip.
We contacted The Kings Post. They were very helpful.
We arrived on a Sunday night. They are in a convenient location (Westlands).
Overall, the place was very nice. We had 2 bedrooms. There were no screens on the window or the beds, but we only saw a few mosquitos outside. The rooms were stylish. The TV had cable. The kitchen had a fridge, microwave, stove, utensils ... . There were lockable cabinets in the rooms. The maid was fine. They only provided 2 small bars of soap, but we had packed shampoo ... with the knowledge that this was an apartment.
The next morning, the office was able to configure my laptop to obtain WiFi signal. The internet speed was good and did not cost extra.
The bathrooms were nice, not great by Western standards, but very nice and clean.
The first night picked up food from an Indian restaurant across the street Piliani's, it was ok.
This worked nice for us. It should be noted that we had a friend pick us up at the airport and had our own vehicle. If you were using taxis service, you may want to see if the office would be willing to help arrange pickup and drop off for you.
Our 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom facility cost ~$200 (usd) per night. I think that is a good value for Nairobi.
