We stayed here for two seperate one night stays, before and between overland trips, so experienced a couple of different rooms. The rooms were both very big, with seperate sleeping and sitting rooms. If they were maintained nicely, it would have the potential to be a nice hotel. However, they're not. The fact that they were dated didn't bother me. However, the bathrooms were particularly old and shabby, and the beds were rock hard - I found it really difficult to sleep. One had a mosquito net, and the other didn't. The one that didn't didn't have a hook for our own one, which was annoying. I can't really comment on what the communal areas of the hotel are like, as there was significant rennovation going on when we were there, to the extent that I have no idea how it used to look or will look when it's finished. I understand this has been going on for a while.
The hotel's central location makes it convenient, but also makes it very noisy - you can hear traffic all through the night, and very loud music at weekends. The sliding doors to the balcony didn't lock, which concerned me in Nairobi, although perhaps I was a bit paranoid.
We ate at the restaurant both evenings and the food was fine (very nice on one occasion). The breakfast was pretty basic, but there was a fair bit of choice. We found the staff to be generally helful - particularly the porters.
Overall, from speaking to others, it seems that there may be better alternatives for a similar price in central Nairobi.
