I have stayed here twice...am actually writing this from my room right now. It is a beautiful, colonial era hotel. The courtyard is the scenic highlight of the place: giant old trees, a nice pool, bar and restaurant by the pool. I really like the first floor rooms that have French doors opening to the courtyard. And the staff has been wonderful at every turn. Friendly, courteous, helpful at every turn. The cost is lower or the same as other hotels in the area that are lower quality and lack the charm. It has been renovated so you have nice amenities, but the classic feel was carefully maintained. I'm looking forward to coming back here with my wife.

IT HAS BEEN EXTENSIVELY REFURBISHED TO PROVIDE MODERN FACILITIES, YET RETAINS THE UNDERSTATED CHARM AND ELEGANCE OF YESTERYEAR. THE HOTEL IS SITUATED CLOSE TO THE CITY CENTRE AND ONLY 20KM FROM JOMO KENYATTA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. WE WELCOME GUESTS TO EXPERIENCE THE TRADITIONAL WARMTH AND HOSPITALITY FOR WHICH BOTH KENYA AND SOUTHERN SUN ARE RENOWNED. ... more less
