We chose to lounge at this hotel due to its proximity to the airport. We arrived in Nairobi during rush hour mid-week and didn't think it made sense to travel into the city. For lounging in a hotel bar, this venue is not bad. However, business travellers or people with long layovers with desires to access the online world, this is not the ideal option. As non staying hotel guests, the rate of internet is $8 USD per hour. While that rate is extremely high compared to your $17 a day rate in North America the service to obtain internet from the hotel is abysmal! First you'll get crapped on by the lady managing the internet service b/c you're not a staying guest at the hotel and then she'll make you run around to get service. I would highly recommend you purchase data service from your own country before attempting to pay for their service.
