“Unimpressive, not very clean, no water in shower but good breakfast”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

We were charged $80 for the room and breakfast and this felt overpriced for what it was. The room was grubby (more than others in Nairobi in the same price range) and there was only a trickle of water coming out of the bathroom tap, and no water at all for the shower. Although I am sure that the bedding had been changed it looked as though it hadnt!
In our experience there were better hotels in Nairobi for a slightly lower price. However, on the plus side the breakfast was good.
