Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip. The hotel dates back to the 70s I think, but the rooms have recently been renovated. It is part of a hotel chain and has some characteristics of both a hotel chain (functional) and a charming old hotel.
The rooms are new with TV, stand-fan and safe but no air-con. Ours had a view of the amazing gardens and this was a big plus. The gardens and swimming pool are the star attraction of the hotel. There is also a small conference room.
The food in the restaurant, which at some point was a dancing /disco area, is good but quality can vary with the chef I think. Breakfast was buffet and good but did not vary. The hotel has a nice small bar with TVs.
For us the location close to the CBD was the main point as it meant we missed most of Nairobi's traffic. The rates are good value compared to other hotels in the area and this seems to be the attraction for the many over-landers who arrived here during our stay.
