I stayed at the hilton for a total of 3 nights .First time in a standart room ,second time i got un upgrade to an executive room which was much better.
I have to say that the hotel is quite old and outdated ,in need of refurbishment.
The room the bed,the bath tiles is from the 70`. The staff was great ,very well trained and behaved.The hotel is heavily guarded ,metal detectors,barriers lots of security guards etc. I ate at the traveller restaurant one night,the food was very good and delicious.
The taxi transfer from the airport for me was 20 USD,which is quite alot i think .When i went to take my suitcase,which did not arrive with me but on the following day i bargained 25 USD from the hotel to the airport and back. So if you are good you could get a better price. The area around the hotel is quite good during the day i found it quite interesting,you have the shops and offices on one side and the real stuff on the other where you could experience africa in a more authentic way. we went to the Carnivore restaurant on the last day which is quite a good place ,although i was expecting even more exotic meats.
So in general the hotel is good but i would not give it 5 stars.It is a very good option for a first time visitor to nairobi though ,since it is very safe and well guarded.
And yes i will stay there again next time i go to nairobi.
