This is a nice comfortable colonial hotel downtown in Nairobi. We had two nights here before and after a tour. It is a long way in from the airport. The food in the Lounge Bar was good, the rooms were quiet and double glazed and the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Breakfast was what you would expect from this chain.
I suppose the guards and security are inevitable, but it did not detract from the visit to a great extent.
If I were to return to Nairobi, I would stay again.
