After reading some less-than-stellar reviews here on Trip Advisor, I was surprised to enter our room and be very pleased with it. Maybe it had been recently renovated, but it was what I would expect from a Hilton. We stayed here 3 nights at the end of a wonderful trip to Kenya. The first night we used Hilton points and the next two we got a very good bed and breakfast weekend rate on the Hilton website, so our stay here was very affordable. We had a king room and it had a couch in a sitting area, so it was very comfortable for watching the royal wedding. I was disappointed that the pub, which had advertised wedding viewing on their large-screen TV, didn't open, for whatever reason. So we brought some lunch in and my husband had a nap while I watched the wedding. ;o) Breakfast was great in the restaurant, though we didn't end up eating at the hotel for any other meals. The staff was very helpful. The pool looked great, but we were too busy sightseeing to make use of it. Right across the street is the Kenyan National Archives and if you enjoy African art, you should visit there. They have a great art collection on view. We felt safe walking around the city -- we did some gift shopping at the City Mall. We walked over to the Thai restaurant at the Sarova Stanley hotel and enjoyed that. I didn't expect to like Nairobi, but I was pleasantly surprised. I would come back to the Hilton again.
