3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

This hotel was listed on Booking .com at a favouable rate for Nairobi stating it was only 15 mins from the centre. It may be in a helicopter but on Nairobi's roads??
The hotel room itself was actually not bad as we had booked a Deluxe room. It was spacious and airy, however cleanliness wasn;t first rate. Debris behind the floor to ceiling curtains and the bed headboard. The worst aspect of this hotel is it's location. It is on a very busy road in a distinctly dodgy area. It doe's have a secure compound around it with at least three guards at each of the 2 gates. It seems to cater mainly for a Somali clientel and the immediate area is very largely one of displaced persons. If you do stay here you will need to go everywhere by pre-arranged taxi.
Not really one to recommend for tourist .

Room Tip: DON'T take a room at the front, you won't get much sleep!!
