Communications were excellent - Endre is fast at responding to inquiries. The staff is great and very helpful.
My room (shared bathroom) was small, but fine. It was very quiet and after months of living near Mombasa, it is nice to be able to sleep under the covers (and without a fan).
The bathroom was a bit dated, as another reviewer noted, but functional.
Breakfast was delicious, made-to-order, and much more than I could eat.
The only glitch I had was transport as it is a bit tricky getting around if you don't have a car or can afford taxis (taxis in Nairobi are overpriced). It is a bit of a trek (walk to main road and then 2 matatus) to get to/from town, but once you figure it out, it is fine. I talked to Endre about the directions to the hotel and he is correcting what is on the internet.
All in all, good value and a good place to stay.
