“Perfectly fine budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

This is not the hotel for anyone desiring a luxury stay, but it is perfectly safe, the staff are nice, and the rooms have free wi-fi and a television, and the bedding is satisfactory. It is located on a somewhat ominous-looking street in the business section, so probably not the best choice for first time travelers to Nairobi unless you are a bit adventurous. But if you are not fussy and want a good price (I negotiated a $60 price), and you just want a bed and somewhere safe with wireless, this is a good choice. The restaurant downstairs is surprisingly good (though I was approached by a prostitute in the bar). I feel completely safe here.

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.
