I stayed here for one night in August and found it to be incredibly good value.
Staff at the reception desk were very efficient - check in took about 90 seconds. I was offered (without asking) the code for wireless internet and it was the best internet connection I've had in Africa - I even managed to make a skype video call on it! Breakfast was basic but nice and the food at the restaraunt next door in the Fairview where I had dinner was excellent.
I used the small gym during my stay. It only has three machines - one treadmill, one stepper machine and one exercise bike - but it's a useful facility and the machines seem to be brand new.
The only negative remark is that the rooms do lack a bit of character. However, as this is not a "destination hotel", I don't think this is really a requirement. The hotel is a base for a person visiting Nairobi and the rooms are immaculately clean and very comfortable and the shower (in my room at least) was an excellent one. I will be in Nairobi again at the beginning of September - I booked my room in the Country Lodge at checkout!
