We stayed here twice, both times just a an overnight transfer in Nairobi due to flights not connecting. Staff were really friendly, and the food was good, with a nice pool area (for a hotel) to sit around.
The rooms were really clean and it is very obvious the hotel is very new. Still nice and shiny and very modern design.
The only thing that we did not like, was the bathroom. There is actually no separate bathroom, instead it is open air to the rest of the room, with the toilet and shower behind frost glass doors. Whilst aesthetically very nice, it is very impractical, as if you want to get dressed after your shower, either the other person just has to keep their back turned , or you get dressed in the shower, where the floor is wet and slippery from the shower you just had...
Might not be such a problem for a couple, but I was travelling with my mother, so privacy to get changed is kind of important...
Other than that the room was lovely, and overall the hotel was great!
Location was good for us, being only 15mins away from the airport, but if you wanted to be close to the centre of Nairobi, there might be better options out there.
