Nairobi hotels are quite expensive, and thanks to my daughter's friend advice we chose this one. Very well located, a nice street with lovely trees, moderate traffic considering the chaos that Nairobi traffic is. Good breakfast, with fresh fruit and fresh juices, eggs cooked to your taste and very nice staff. The bedrooms have tea/coffee making facilities, television with foreign channels. We had a small balcony with a very pleasent view and they have a lovely very inviting swimming pool, for the summer months. The drains in the shower cubicle are slow so you have to be careful not to flood the bathroom(it is not a major issue). They have security at the gates 24 hours a day which is very reassuring. All in all a very good hotel for a business trip or a stop over from your safaris. Had a driver pick us up from airport, he is reliable and very nice and drives you around Nairobi. Edward was very helpful and always arrived on time. Please contact me if you need any information regarding him. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, if you want something better at a higher price there are other options.
