“Good!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

Good for business but a bit on the slow service wise. Best place to stay if you'r eona stoopver in Nairoi for a w/e en route elsewhere. Very convenient to the airport. Internet a bit on the slow and service can be a bit hit and miss but overall should you wish to stay in south c and near the airport or on businees or indeed working with the red cross I would recommend.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

Rooms: 60, standard and suites. Standard rooms are en-suite and have an abundance of furniture. The bathrooms are somewhat tired and dated and would benefit from a refurb. However, plenty of toiletries but no shampoo and also have a hairdryer. Towels are very old but clean. The room itself has a TV but feels somewhat crowded due to the large amount of furniture which is probably not needed. Beds quite comfy but check for mosquitoes before sleep – there are no nets included in the bedrooms. There is a safe, free of charge, included in the room and a mini fridge (not stocked).

Restaurant: good usual choice of food. The very good news about this hotel is that the restaurant remains open until midnight – excellent for travellers arriving late into Nairobi. Breakfast was very good – usual cereals and full English etc.

Facilities: Garden Bar. Business Centre (no tower unit PC – you have to take your own laptop), fitness suite and very good conference facilities. The hotel boasts free wifi. However, unless you have a laptop with you, you cannot utilise this facility as they do not have PC’s available for guests to use.

Overall, this is a quite well appointed hotel in a good location from the airport (around a 30 minute drive). However, it is mainly for the business client rather than the holidaying client. The room prices are a little on the expensive side for holiday clientele. Grounds are pleasant and the staff are very knowledgeable of the local area and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

I stayed four nights at this new hotel and was quite happy. The location is very advantageous as it is fairly close to the airport and you can avoid most of the horrible Nairobi traffic here. This hotel has exceptional service and spotless rooms. I think this is the best value so far I have found in Nairobi. Not ultra-luxe but very comfortable (although the beds are a bit stiff). It feels more authentic than the big chains and everyone is very pleasant and welcoming.

Reasonably priced hotel, sometime a little bit noisy, close to the airport
