“"In town but out of town great experience"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Great atmosphere....Exceptional staff and Amazing food!Not your usual city center hotel setup, they really try to make you feel like your away in a beach resort room once you are in the rooms. Definitely going back there, especially loved the 'black and red' themed rooms....:-)

Room Tip: Rooms in the 5th floor are more quiet and private

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Stayed here for a night and it was absolutely fine.

It's pretty basic but dirt cheap and represents good value for money. I asked for a quiet room on the top floors, and it was dated but perfectly adequate.

It was called an 'economy' room, there wasn't much space around the double bed, there was no a/c or mod-cons, but there was a TV, the bed was comfy enough and the bathroom was spotless. And it only cost 4,000 Ksh.

I didn't stay for breakfast but it was included. It all felt very secure and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

It's pretty decently located in the central part of town - and is a two minute walk from the Norfolk if you fancy somewhere relaxing nearby for a coffee.

Functional, cheap and safe.

We felt quite lucky to discover this hotel. I think it's sort of in the outer-center of Nairobi (haven't spent long enough in the city to be sure). From by the office (where the lady was very helpful) an unpromising staircase led up to a surprisingly spacious upper gallery, which was one of the lounging and eating areas, and off this were rooms also surprisingly large; ours had a mesh screen dividing it from what was in effect a large balcony overlooking a street. We came down by devious ways (almost through the kitchen!) to a large restaurant area that rambled through from one street to another. Something suggested that business people say to each other "Let's meet for breakfast somewhere - how about the Delta?"

We'd reserved at a hotel a block away from the Delta. It was Christmas Day, and we couldn't face staying in the grim little room which had to be triple-locked and had surly staff. We were wandering aimlessly when some kind person led us to the Delta. Mary at the front desk was kind and efficient. She gave us the choice of 3 types of rooms. We took the largest, which was quite swish. The cost was $68, only $5 more than the other place. It even had a little dining area and a balcony. Mary also printed out our boarding passes for us. Breakfast was plentiful and you can have it in your room. The hotel is very secure because it's just across from the police station! The Delta is a comfortable, attractive hotel at a budget price. I'm surprised it isn't in any of the guidebooks.
