This is by far the closest I have stayed to JKIA. The hotel is so close to the airport, I did not have to wake up at insane hours to head to the airport like I have to when I am in West-lands and other parts of Nairobi. The welcome was good, and the staff friendly (too friendly till I forgot my passport at reception).
The location on the other hand is not so conducive for those who love the city as it is far from town. This means it comes with limited shopping and restaurants. I heard there is a shopping mall nearby, but I never got to visit. The restaurant (SPUR) staff were also good and I enjoyed my meal there. As I was spending one night there, I did not have any issues.... and it was a comfortable transit place... I would however have challenges staying there for two or three nights as I would be far away from town.
I love the set up in the rooms, I found it unique especially the toilets and the shower, though the door kept on banging each time I came out, was afraid would break the glass. Good place to stay, highly recommended.
