I am always surprised how international operators like IHG maintain and manage properties that are tired and dated. The Intercontinental in Nairobi is a case in point and the pictures definitely demonstrate it. I was told that i was upgraded to a superior room at check in - would not like to see what a standard room would look like. The room size is just about ok while the bathroom is so small that you can touch the walls if u spread hour arms. The hotel is past its heyday - restaurants are week and the food and beverage offering in all the restaurants is the same. You visit the bar the all day dining and the pool bar the menu cover is different but food identical - some five star.
The bar is full of prostitutes promoted by the bar staff themselves. My advice stay elsewhere.
