“Overpriced bunker”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

While it is still benefiting from the fact that it is brand new, it looks and feels like an impersonal bunker. The staff is not always proficient in English (it took me 3 phone calls and 20mn to order room service), although very nice. Expensive compared to other alternatives nearby.
Good internet connection.
Food entirely chinese....no selection besides chinese food. Quality varies greatly from dish to dish.
Most importantly, the management is not accommodating, even to repeat customers.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

East land is a few miles from the Central Business District in Nairobi. I was there for some nights with my girlfriend and it was indeed romantic with the spa, saunas and the serenity of the environment. Though the restaurant houses some rich Chinese cuisine, it can be a perfect destination for any one whatsoever. The staff was okay because there are kenyans and chinese ones and the kenyan ones were okay as far as English as a language was concerned. The killer thing with the hotel is that apart from the Luxurious feel of it, the prices are fair enough, i mean not expensive. I might consider visiting again with my lovely girlfriend.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the east have a beautiful feel as the sun rises in the morning.

Eastland is a hotel still under construction. The two top floors are still being finalised, so there was a bit of construction voice while we were there in the daytime. Everything in the hotel from matchboxes to soap dispensers has been imported from China, so everything is labelled in Chinese as well as English. The restaurant boasts an impressive selection of Chinese cuisine as is customary with most Chinese restaurants. Staff is a mix of Kenyans and Chinese management. Unfortunately, the Chinese staff has a bit of a problem with English. Rooms are ok albeit rather scruffy looking already considering it is yet an unfinished hotel. Breakfast is below average. Price was ok, however, so might give this hotel another chance.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing away form the courtyard. There are a couple of VIP karaoke rooms in the restaur...
