After a long flight and a bustling drive to the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised at the size of our suite. The once elegant furniture was a bit shabby, but still very nice. Our daughter, who paid for a single supplement, even had a small balcony off her living area. Despite our fatigue, we went out into the city and visited nearby City Market (high-pressure sales, but the only shopping time we had on the tour other than a few gift shop pit stops). We walked around the University of Nairobi, and the ultra-chic Norfolk Hotel. We bought some beers at a nearby market and enjoyed them on the pool deck at sunset. The pool area is gorgeous and a swim felt wonderful after the long journey. We had dinner in the main restaurant. The service was painfully slow, we waited an hour after ordering for our meal to come. However, the Indian-style food was excellent, probably the best food we had on the trip. Others in our group did not experience the slow service. The buffet breakfast in the morning was also quite nice.
Overall the facilities are very nice and comfortable, and I would stay here again.
