“Simple comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2008

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon to a warm welcome from security and front line staff.

Got a good room with a four poster bed, wish I had brought my other half, she would have enjoyed it.

The Hotel is just out of the CBD, a short taxi ride away. Traffic in and around Nairobi can be very difficult to negotiate so I would advise care and planning when making arrangements to visit other parts of the City.

On many occassions a buffet dinner is served which is a good mix of Kenyan and international dishes, A good chance for those of a careful disposition to try local food. On other occassions a fixed menu is available with European, Indian and local Kenyan dishes featured.

The hotel has a short wine list, all drinkable! Local beer should satisfy most palates.

Friendly and welcoming staff. I would stay again.

On a sour note, my computer bag and its contents were carefully and cleverly removed from under my feet at a restaurant elsewhere in Nairobi. I emphasise not at the Silver Springs.

  • Liked — Location, close to business partner
  • Disliked — Poor facilities for storage of clothes, lots of hanging space but no shelves.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2007

This hotel was a peaceful haven away from the apparent chaos of downtown Nairobi. At least 3 security guards at the drive in gate, a doorman and always 3 staff at reception.

The atmosphere was relaxed and despite arriving late from the aiport [11pm] the staff could not do enough to make the booking quick and simple. Just a little bit late to catch dinner but the open bar area beside the pool rustled up some snacks. Managed to get a superior room for 12,000KES thanks to the friendly reception staff. Four poster bed and enough room to dance.

We stayed overnight and one of the local car rental firms picked us up next morning to go to the office and complete paperwork for the 4x4 rental. [Kenya Car Rental - Highly recommended - Mr Esmail Jolly and family]

I was so impressed with the hotel that we booked another overnight stay on return from Nakuru 10 days later. The breakfast was good and the overall impression was clean, businesslike and professional. I totall recommend this hotel to any fellow travellers if you need peace from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
