“Ideal hotel for airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

It's a pity we only had 7 hours at this hotel. But a prompt pick-up at the airport after a domestic flight in a very comfortable vehicle too us in no time to a newish hotel where the welcome was five star. The approach is rather bumpy and rough, but this will no doubt improve as the area is developed. The rooms are great, and the porter spotted a fault in our room before we did (there had been a leak from the room above and paint was flaking into the shower, so he fixed us another room promptly. The rooms are spacious and modern with generous mosquito curtains round the bed.

It tends to be a bit noisy because of the central atrium (think prison, but that's where the comparison ends) and strangely there's no lift.

We were asked if we'd like breakfast. At 4.30 a.m? I asked. No problem, they said, and we had a call at 4.30 to tell us it was ready. Afterwards, another efficient transfer to the airport, no charge!

It's excellent value for money!

Damian, we are humbled by your kind words! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be of service to you. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the complimentary airport shuttle service that we offer.

We are working on getting sound absorbers for the courtyard, and I'm sure the next time you come to 67 Airport Hotel, this will have been taken care of. You are right about the area currently undergoing a lot of developments, and soon the road leading to the hotel will be tarmacked.

We look forward to your next visit to 67 Airport Hotel!

If you are looking for a high end quality at reasonable price and more important near Jomo Kenyatta International Airport then this is the place you shouldn't miss. Airport transfer services were timely. The staff at the hotel were eager to serve me as i stepped into the hotel. Nice ambiance with new fittings well polished baths and neat beads. I would recommend to anyone who is conscious about price but still want a high end service.

Anyone who can design and construct a prison and pass it off as a hotel deserves respect. It's inspirational and ensures the Kenya Prison Service will have a ready-made facility when this hotel goes out of business.

Cleverly hidden away in what will become a Nairobi suburb some ten years from now (and a slum in a further decade), the building looks drab and uninviting, but the staff are extremely pleasant and try their best. Restaurant service was good and the food enjoyable.

The prison design - with all the rooms around a central courtyard - ensures that even the smallest sound is magnified throughout the entire property. Very clever.

So why did I check out after only one night of the four which had been prepaid?

Partly the noise but mostly - and yes, I know this is petty - they advertise "Tea and Coffee-making facilities plus in-room safes" but they were non-existent; having to stand on the bed to adjust the mosquito net and then have the entire structure collapse around me; having to put towels under the half-inch gap at the bottom of the Balcony Door to help keep out the mosquitoes who would now find me sleeping wrapped in the recently-collapsed net.

And how difficult is it to check-out earlier than planned and get a refund of the prepaid nights?

Extremely, but to their credit (and my surprise) the hotel did wire-transfer the refund as promised - less the Bank Fees they had incurred when receiving the original payment.

Thank you for taking your time to write this review. We love to get reviews, so that we can see the areas where we are doing well, and also the areas where we need to improve.

We are happy to note that you enjoyed the food and services provided by our staff and sincerely apologize for the discomfort you may have experienced while with us. Please understand that our hotel is brand new, and at the time of your visit, we were hardly opened for a month. We have since done a lot of finishing touches, and we are happy to let you know that all rooms now have coffee making facilities. All rooms were inspected and the mosquito nets reinforced.

Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you suffered, and assure you of a much more comfortable stay next time you stay with us.
