4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2011

travelled with my fiancee for xmas vacation. The staff were extremely friendly and are always willing to help. You have people like Lilian who are really committed to the job. Everyone was friendly, from the cleaners, security to kitchen staff
. We are definitely coming back again soon.
the only thing is they do not have variety of foods to choose from so i suggest they expand the menu .My lady was complaining about the food but I really did not mind because i can eat just about anything.

The location is also okay because it is in the city centre and the place is safe. The rooms were very clean and impressive. we had free wifi and dstv channels
It was quite an experience and the hotel is amazing.

first of all, we were stupid for booking a hotel with one of the tourist trappers just outside of nairobi airport. as soon as you step foot outside of the airport, you will be bombarded by tourist trappers. if you book with them, be sure that you will be charged at least double what you should pay. my recommendation is to use them for their information, nothing more, and even then, take it with a grain of salt. but DO NOT BOOK WITH THEM, DO NOT GIVE THEM MONEY. they are nothing more than salesmen of the worst kind. "oh yeah, this is a better hotel than the one you found in the guide book which is much more expensive than you think anyway. i'm just looking out for your safety." blah blah blah.

he quoted us $80/night. i admit we were stupid for booking with him, but i didn't realize how badly we were cheated. i knew we were stupid and that we overpaid, but i was determined to find out how badly we got cheated. when we got there, before telling them i was the person that just booked over the phone, i pretended to be a customer just off the street. she quoted me $40/night. and then i told her that we already booked for twice the price. she claimed to have made a mistake, of course. the next day, i walked into the reception office where a man had just booked a room. i heard him say he got it for $18 (we paid $80). i asked the receptionist (the same one who lied to us when we first arrived) if she just booked the man for that cheap. she said yes. mid-sentence, she stopped herself and said, "oh, no, he's just staying for a few hours." what a horrible liar.

first thing we noticed even before walking in was the environment. a VERY busy street. very noisy as well. lots of congested traffic, lots of people, and street drumming. our toilet didn't flush. it was at least clean. i would've stayed there for $20. however, after we left, on our way out of the neighborhood, we heard gunshots and saw people fleeing. our taxi driver said it was the police fighting with the locals. yeah, safe.

the restaurant is small. when you walk in, you pass the kitchen, a tiny little room. they only had 1 bottle of water in the whole restaurant. our chicken was not cooked all the way through, and it took almost an hour and a half.

we were promised internet from our room. it only worked in the restaurant. and it's not exactly free. they give you vouchers that only work for at most 24 hours. she wouldn't give us more than 1, so i played the "we both know you cheated us, so just give it to me" card. that worked.

moral of the story: do not book with the tourist trappers outside the airport. their job is to see how much they can cheat you. and for a hotel of this caliber, it's easy to get 3-4 times as much as it should cost. lesson learned.
