We were accommodated at Eldon Villas for a conference held next door at Piedmont Plaza. I was in B3, a standard 2 bed apartment.
The accommodation is basic and decoration is OK, comments about the showers being in close proximity to the toilet are correct, but there is a shower curtain, and a sill in the shower. I never had the problems people were mentioning if I pulled the shower curtain when showering!
Towels were only changed every 2-3 days, but if I asked our room steward he changed them for me.
The TV is pretty basic, but every apartment has its own WiFi access point - if yours doesn't work try the good old 'switch it off and on again' trick.
The apartments are just a 5 minute walk from Nakumat Junction and I felt pretty safe walking there by myself during the day - a bit dusty but it was fine. The security is good, and the staff were friendly and accommodating.
Unfortunately I got stuck in Nairobi as I was due to fly out when the airport caught fire, and they were kind enough to allow me to extend my stay for three days until I was able to fly home.
There is also a swimming pool which looked very nice, but it was too cold for me to be swimming (in August!) and it was raining quite a bit!
The price was pretty good compared to accommodating two of us in a hotel in central Nairobi, and to be honest we didn't have any complaints about the apartment. The kitchen facilities are basic but serviceable, we got things like loo paper and washing up liquid from Nakumat - if you just need a base in Nairobi which doesn't cost the earth, is safe and has good internet connectivity this will do.
Our room steward was really outstanding, very friendly (as were all the staff) and helpful - lots of local knowledge as well. The hotel has a single taxi but they can call taxis from Nakumat.
