I stayed at Sentrim 680 hotel in September 2011 for five days. Having heard about the noisy restaurant close to the hotel, I was careful enough to request beforehand (by email) that I wanted a 'quiet' room. The room I got was on the far side of the noisy place, and I could still hear the music until late night on most nights...but it wasn't too bad.
The hotel itself was kind of minimalist but clean. There is a security guard on every floor--this seems to be the Kenyan standard for all hotels. The beds were made for the first two nights, but not thereafter. The bathroom was clean and functional.
Please do not change currency at the hotel--their offer was KES 80 to the USD, whereas I finally managed to get KES 99 to the US (at UN Offices at Nairobi). The internet is also somewhat expensive at about KES 900 per 24-hour interval, but it worked fine.
Overall, the 680 was reasonable value for money at about USD 80 per night. The location is right off the downtown arterial road, and is therefore excellent.
