“If you like your shower cold ...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2010

My friend and I needed a room for a late arrival with an early departure. We didn't want to spend a lot of money and were able to book a room at Glory Royal for a little over $100 on Expedia. So what do you get in Nairobi for about $100? Not much. You get windows without screens and a bathroom where the toilet and the shower share a space. This means that after taking a shower, the toilet needs to be towel dried because it gets cleaned at the same time as you. Hot water didn't work in the shower . Reported it upon checking out and was kindly told that we could have called to have it fixed. Mmm, with an early departure, who had the time? When we checked in, we were told that it might be a little noisy in the morning as there was some work being done on the grounds. We didn't need an alarm clock as we could hear the workmen right outside our windows as they got their early start. As for breakfast, they had prepared omelettes, pre-toasted bread and juice. Nothing special. After having spent a total of about 8 hours at this hotel, I was more than happy to leave. It's just the accommodations that left more to be desired. The staff was friendly and courteous. We also tried to contact the hotel to inquire about a hotel shuttle but since they don't have a website, we tried to send a fax with the fax number provided by Expedia. It didn't work. We booked with a local provider and paid $25 for the service.
