I stayed here 3 nights in all, before and after a safari. The first set was two nights and there were definite positives and negatives to the property. Always start with the positives...staff were excellent, warm, and friendly - a great introduction to the great Kenyan people. The rooms were comfortable and I slept fine. Nice balconies with nice views of the general area and gardens etc...Outside area is very slick and nice. Great spot to have a few Tuskers and laugh the night away with a few others. Ordered food there one evening and didn't get what I wanted but it was pretty tasty nonetheless so happy days. The lock system isn't that great but I had no worries and there are guards outside the property and safes behind the counter to keep your valuables in. Don't scare yourself, most of the hotels here have a guarded gate before you get in, that can be a good thing. Second stay was the last night after the safari and had a wonderful night. Always various tours in and out so cool people to meet up with at the bar. There is a reason a lot of tour companies use this as a starting point and it is an honestly good spot. You can walk about 5 minutes down Jomo Kenyatta to get into downtown which was pretty cool and vibrant. All in all, I would definitely stay here again if I am in Nairobi again - good value, good hotel.
