I stayed at the Jacaranda Hotel on a business trip. The most important recommendation of this hotel is its location. It is in the middle of Westlands, off Wayaki Way, right next to the Sarit Centre and within 5 minutes of Westgate. There are ATMs across the way. It also has one or two good restaurants close by. This is useful because the in-house food is extremely over-priced by Nairobi restaurant standards but also given the very average standard of the food served. You won't want to eat in.
I also noted that I was quoted in USD but billed in Kenyan Shillings at a very unfavourable rate. If you are asking for a quotation from this and any other Kenyan hotel, insist on KSH at the start in order to make realistic comparisons. It can mean the difference between USD180 and USD200 per night.
Otherwise, the staff were helpful and the standard of the rooms was good.
