Stayed at this hotel for one week in late September with my Son and 9 yr old Grandson Charlie and had a really good time. This is a very nice hotel with lovely friendly staff. We had a triple room with a great walk in shower. Enjoyed a good breakfast each morning with a choice of specially prepared egg dishes with fruit, cereal and pastries.
Had dinner at the hotel on several occasions and thought it good food and very good value with no added charges like the more expensive hotels. Drank Tusker lager at about £1.60 for a large bottle in the outside bar with large televisions showing a South African sports channel. My Son said this was his favourite bar in the world.
The Boulevard was in the city centre next to the Norfolk Hotel and Nairobi University. We always felt felt very safe when walking around and when the locals saw Charlie with his Manchester United shirts on they all gave him the thumbs up.
There were three internet stations in the hotel charging about £1.50 for half an hour. Charlie’s treat each night was to have his time on them. The girls in charge took a like to him and he always seemed to get more time.
The swimming pool was large and very clean if not a little cold but lots of people used it.
Visited Nairobi National Park, The National Museum and Snake Park, Lake Naivasha and the Great Rift Valley and 14 Falls where a lot of movies are made including Tarzan films. We all enjoyed our holiday very much thanks mainly to having a lovely hotel to return to each day.
This is an honest evaluation and we did not find it tired or run down but a great place to stay for a city visit.
Special mention for Jackson, who was the lobby attendant and dealt with the suitcases. Charlie built up a special friendly relationship with him.
