I wrote to the hotel in advance to get a cab to pick us up from the airport after our over seas flights from the US. The Hilton rep was there waiting for us after customers and arranged a cab for us at a very reasonable price. The hotel is in a great location in central Nairobi. As part of staying on the executive floors, the business center and honors lounge are included. That means free internet, breakfast and happy hour. The rooms are old but very adequate. We were greeted with some crackers and a fruit basket. We stayed there at the beginning and end of our trip. The staff is excellent, very accomodating and customer service orientated. As our flight left at 11pm they extended our checkout time many hours which was very convenient. It is safe to walk around their during the day but need to take cabs at night. The hotel recommended two excellent restaurants and made reservations for us: Trattoria- owned and operated by an Italian and TAMARIND, a superb seafood place. (Trattoria doesn't take credit cards.) We didn't eat at the hotel but used the health club facilities. The workout room could use more fans/circulation but otherwise was fine. Check with the bell captain as to cab charges in advance. The bellmen knew more than the front desk people in terms of cost of cabs and location of places. It's a good idea if you are coming to the hotel from someplace else to ask the hotel the cost of the cab ride as you may need to negotiate.
