I like to be reasonable when reviewing anything but on this occasion I feel compelled to be forthright. I stayed here on a business trip back in July and cannot understand why it has so many good reviews. In a nutshell, for the price this hotel is a disgrace, trading on the Hilton name at prices that are simply extraordinary for what you get (for all the wrong reasons). The rooms are small, dank, dark and with decor from the 1980s (if not earlier).
I wouldn't mind so much if it cost £30/night (which is what you'd pay Travelodge) but $200 USD? Seriously, the condition of the rooms is no better than Travelodge. How Hilton can do this is beyond me. I think a lot of people probably stay here because they're on the Hilton rewards program but given the condition of the place I really wouldn't bother. Hilton really need to refurbish this Hotel or drop the prices, anything else is naked opportunism (lack of decent competition) and makes me want to avoid Hiltons from now on.
I would have given in 1 star were it not for the very polite, attendant staff and decent restaurant (which is expensive by the way).
Stay at the Nairobi Sankara which my colleagues tell me an amazing place and has rightly won awards.
