I stayed here a week because its near to our office. The hotel is rather basic. I had a room on the ground floor, adjacent to the garden so i had a lot of noise of people enjoying their drinks.
The shower didnt provide me with warm water for 3 days.
Executive Rooms - Self Contained, carpeted rooms with double bed. Im not sure whether the fact it has a carpet is a plus, as it felt it could use some cleaning.
The food is OK
The gym is a joke. There is one machine tat might have been hightec in the 70s but you cant use it anymore. it actually broken. There a a few 5kg weights lying around and a non working tredmill. No use.
i had quite some laundry that i needed quick. the express cleaning service delivered.
overall this is very much a kenian business hotel. dont expect international standards to apply. it located near the city centre and when you travel at night, only 30 minutes from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (Nairobi traffic is terrible!)
