I was recommended to stay at this hotel by an American friend who visits Nairobi regularly. The hotel was clean and extremely safe as it is enclosed with a wall and gate. The hotel is far outside of downtown Nairobi.
The food was just ok but wasn't great. The best part of the dining experience were the juices they offered.
The rooms have a window above the door and the lights on in the hallways at night are an annoyance if you need complete darkness to sleep. The hallways also echo so you might hear noise at night but while I was there most guest were aware, considerate and respectful of this.
If you want a lower priced hotel that you will feel completely safe in, this would be a great one to consider.
