The hotel is located just outside main city center Nairobi in an area called Upperhill. Lots of government departments and embassies are around, the area is very safe (however don´t leave at night). The hotel is owned and operated by a family and is to be considered 4/5 star. The rooms do meet international standard and lots of business travelers share with western tourists. The hotel has a very nice pool area and 4 restaurants from casual to high class. You can get economy, business, first class and suite rooms located in 5 buildings on the compound. We stayed there two nights before flying out of Nairobi. it is ideally located next to the main road to downtown and 30 min from airport. Even without navigation or local help you´ll find your way. the quality of service and food is excellent, you can easily stay there for one of two days without leaving the hotel, relax at the pool and enjoy the quiet and cosy atmosphere. There is no distinction between resident rate and tourist rate (which is to our experience unusual for kenya). Parking is available at no extra cost. When you are looking for an hidden gem within a major city this is the place to go.
