I was one of the first guests at Dreamplace as it had just opened. They were still working out some things, so it was impressive that my stay was so pleasant. The location was great, as it is walking distance to ICRAF and the UN. Also, just a couple of blocks from the Village Market shopping center. The Internet connection was excellent. Breakfast was included, and it came with lots of options such as eggs, different kinds of breads, fruits and juice. It was nice to meet at breakfast some of the other guests staying there, mostly people working in international development. They have cable TV with nice new flat screens, and some international channels such as BBC, CNN and others. The best thing about Dreamplace was the great service and attention from Joan, the managing associate. She was very helpful in orienting me to the area and helping with little things like getting the right taxi, changing money etc. I recommend Dreamplace to others and will certainly plan to stay there again the next time I am in Nairobi.
