I know when you reach the hotel you would be like wow nice etc...live there for 15 days like me and you would know the inside out.
I am writing this review while inside the hotel right now, trust me you are not alone in this room..cockroaches are there with you.. not one not two but so many that you will never feel alone..lol
Well I guess and from what I have heard this is probably the cleaner ones in the price tag. No AC so summers can be difficult.
Though some claim it to be 10 mins from the town but I have walked almost daily it will take you atleast 20 mins to reach CBD. If you have a good appetite then please do not rely on the hotel restaurant as I am sure they will succeed to disappoint you.If they don't have customers then they tend to treat the ones they do have, with negligence..if you order a food there and you like it, so you come back the other day and you order it again, to your surprise the quantity will go down to half..lol..and the dish which was prepared on a pan yesterday would be served by heating it in the Ovan and uncooked. This was the weirdest thing that happened.
So please don't think that you will be able to find good food here so do make sure you get something packed from CBD. Food is way over priced as compared to the quality and quantity you may get for a similar meal in CBD
Breakfast OMG...let me give you the list which is what they have everyday..no change at all and food is cold.
1.Fruit salad and cereals with hot and cold milk options
3.Mashed potato (nothing you have ever tasted in your life, they have no taste actually)
4.Pancakes (the thinnest you can imagine)
5.Scrambled Eggs (I didn't even recognize it till I read the name plate)
7.Bread butter, jam
8.Fruits (some of them would really smell like when a fruit goes bad)
11.2 more things that looked bad so I never read the names)
There are almost no street lights between the hotel and the CBD crossing, so be careful if you planning to walk..carry a torch if you can.
Currency exchange in the hotel is like a loot..for 1 USD they will you 75 Kenya shiilings!!
If you go to Central Market in CBD you can get it for 86 and airport it is 83 as per 07-05-2014.
All the best have fun and you may enjoy swimming, tennis, bar etc here in the hotel no gym though :(
