We recently stayed at PP after returning from Amboseli and on route to The Mara. We had a spacious 1 bed apartment and the hotel brought in a double z-bed for the children. The hotel seemed like good value for money at $120/night compared to other hotels in Nairobi. However, this was still expensive for what you got. Cleanliness of the room was poor. The spare blankets were stained and clearly not washed. The pillows were very old and well used, could be folded in 2! There was no hot water for washing or shaving and no sink plugs and the instantaneous electric shower involved turning on two different water taps and an electric switch for the pump. It was no power shower either! It also had exposed electrical wires.
The internet was patchy and there was no A/C. Not a problem for us, but could be in the warmer months.
Breakfast was basic and largely Indian food, looked good but selection poor.
We were not expecting to stay in luxury as this is Africa, but the tents we stayed in in Amboseli were 100% better in terms of cleanliness and comfort in comparison.
We experienced excessive noise and loud music from the adjacent gym. On a positive note, the staff were very friendly and accomodating. Its a good location for the Westgate and Westlands shopping areas and seemed quite safe.
Overall, we were disappointed and booked into a different hotel on our return from The Mara at what turned out to be a cheaper price and much better facilities.
