The Nairobi Hilton's picture on its website is somewhat creatively photographed, and looks a bit more dated that it appears in the evening light with its city lights and sunset background. The hotel is located downtown (expansive) and in an area that I would not walk after sunset. Views from the hotel are anything but pleasant. Nairobi is not picturesque, so don't expect to see a lovely vista.
That said, upon arrival, I was greeted by a very friendly staff who were proactive to assist me. While checking in I inquired about the purchase of a SIM card and time units, when the receptionist said "we can send someone across the street to get it". The Concierge dispatched a runner and within 20 minutes it was in my hand. Then they assisted me to set up the phone and I was good to go.
The room was on the 14th (Executive Level) and well-appointed with king bed, sofa, cable TV, safe, typical Hilton desk clock/radio that one sees in any Hilton property. The sofa and drapes were showing their age, but appeared to be in good repair and clean. The bathroom was clean and well equipped.
The Travelers Restaurant served an excellent buffet breakfast with a complete assortment of fruit, bread, European breakfast, and American-style as well. Service was quick, extremely friendly, and very attentive.
The health club has 3 treadmills, stationary bikes, some free weights, on-site trainer, exercise room and scheduled classes, mens/women's lockers, showers, and dry and wet saunas.
I did not visit the pool.
