This hotel is about a ten minute walk from the town centre. The rooms are big and the service is very good. The reception is warm and welcoming from the guard to the staff in the kitchen at breakfast. The views are also pretty good depending on which rooms you stay in. There is a pool and spa facilities. The food was great and we had almost all our meals at the hotel. The breskfast is not to be missed. It is reasonably priced. We stayed here on two occassions on our trip in Nairobi in January 2012. They have other hotels in other cities and they are more than happy to book accommodation for you or a safari trip with one of their other hotels around the country. We stayed at the Whitesands hotel in Mombasa which is part of their franchise. Look out for my review on that hotel cos it was FANTASTIC.
When we visited, they were renovating and upgrading some of their rooms but we were not affected in any way. There is security on all levels, if not a bit too much at times.
Otherwise a great place to stay with no worry of spending too much money to get into the city.
