During a business trip to Nairobi I have been in this hotel. I think that the tripadvisor reviews for this hotel are exagerated and are giving a very high evaluation for it considering the cost. 130US$ per night is not worth for what you get!
It could also be that we are in Africa and the prices are different than in Middle East and Asia, but the price per night is still very expensive for a 10m2 room and a very essential bathroom with just one soap and shampoo, it is too much. The furnitures are nice, no air-con, no frigo bar.
The common space is just reduced to the reception area. The corridor to access to the rooms is very narrow. Overall it seems to be a prison.
They only serve breakfast. For dinner you must move to Fairview hotel, 100m under the eyes of the security people, belonging to the same ownership. It could be good for business people leaving at 8.00am and coming back at 10.00pm, just for sleeping. Anyway the concept of minimal and environment friendly in this case it is only an excuse to make very good money!!
