We only spent one night in this hotel--upon arrival to Nairobi after our international flight--staying here as part of a tour. The hotel is outside of town, about half an hour away from the city's center.
The hotel is on a gigantic compound with casinos, restaurants, pools, conference areas and I think also a grounds with animals. As we arrived late, we didn't really get to explore.
We were assigned room 208 with 3 single beds. The ground floor room was spacious but not well lit. In the room are amenities like fridge, coffee/tea maker, a safe, hair dryer and 3 complimentary bottles of 500mL Dasani water. The room also provided some robes and slippers. In the bathroom are the usual soap and shampoo amenities and plenty of counter space. There is also a bidet. Thankfully the bathroom was pretty well-lit. There was some mold on the ceilings.
The fridge drones quite loudly at night.
Breakfast was served in Cafe Kigwa, a building overlooking the pool and it was decent. The annoying thing is asking for coffee/tea and they take forever to get to you and when you want a refill, you need to ask again. Would've been more efficient to leave a small pot on the table. The best part about the breakfast is the (smaller) bottles of Dasani water you can take.
While taking some pictures and video of the lobby shortly after arrival, I was told by a female security that there is no videotaping in the lobby. WTF? Really, in a tourist-frequented lobby? Give me a break. I videotaped to my heart's content the next morning and the male security didn't say anything.
