I have to travel at times for work and this was my second trip to Kenya. Having stayed in this hotel once before, I knew what to expect. The food is always fantastic, the atmosphere is nice and the staff are amazing here. On this trip, one of the hotel staff was determined to teach me some Swahili - something that I thought was fantastic.
The room that I stayed in wasn't as nice as the first and would suggest that some of the bathrooms could do with refurbishment. That written, my overall experience at this hotel is very, very positive. This place is definitely worth a visit.
