We stayed in this hotel for two nights before commencing an overland tour of Africa. Staff were friendly and welcoming and provided good service. The room was of a good size and it was spotlessly clean. The beds were really comfortable, which was a blessing after our 26-hour trip to get to Nairobi. The bathroom was quite large compared to most hotels, and it was nice to have a windown (a small window strip along the top of the wall which faced out into the corridor - it was high enough that no one could see through it at all!). We were on the first floor overlooking the pool, and a porter happily carried our luggage upstairs for us.
The breakfast was of a good standard, with a good choice of food available. We ate lunch and dinner at the restaurant as well, the service was a little slow but the food was good. We arranged transport out to the giraffe sanctuary and Nairobi National Park with reception, and we had a fantastic driver/guide for the day.
The hotel itself is located quite close to the city centre. To get there, you need to walk down a street which is home to the University and some other hotels - so there are plenty of people around! You do need to cross quite a busy road to get across to the CBD - we asked some locals to guide us across the road (much to their amusement) but they did so happily.
