Stayed at the Heron twice on a recent trip to Kenya/Tanzania, before and after an Intrepid trip. It is good value for Nairobi - very secure, great desk staff, a very good restaurant with attentive waiters and a very relaxing ambience.
The rooms, particularly those upstairs in the main building, are well apppointed with free wi-fi. Desk staff are very helpful in arranging transport and recommending places to visit.
Importantly it is one hundred metres down the street from the hotel used by Intrepid to start and end trips. If you can, stay here rather than the other place. You won't regret it!
