I didn't like the rooms, they didn't look clean enough. The red carpet looks like it isn't cleaned out often. The towels are a questionable colour, I expected bleached white. It's ok if all you need is a budget place to crash.

The hotel does not meet the basic standards, with a bathroom drain that did not work, torn bed sheets and dirty furniture. The food is ok, and the waiters service is also good. It seems that it was a place that used to do well in the past but is now rundown.

Unexpectedly very clean. The curry chicken was good. Fried tilapia was not fresh though. Decent bathrooms and a good stop on the way back to nairobi from lake bogoria. The service was fast and appreciated as we were in a rush to get to nairobi.

Our safari company dropped us off at this dump and I am glad it was only 1 night. I suppose it must be a really cheap place. The hotel itself is old and shabby, in a bad area (we were warned not to leave the premises) and has some amazing features worth mentioning: - the receptionist sits behind thick bars... More

It was the worst hotel I have ever seen/been. Rooms quality, dining room cleanliness (floor was covered with yesterdays food), possibility to sleep (mosquitoes, no mosquitoe' net, screaming neighbours)... We only stayed there one night and waited the opportunity to leave quickly in the morning, In the morning we left, we almoust step on vomit on the floor...

I stayed here with a mission group. I rated this hotel not based on American standards...after all this is not the EU or US. That being said this hotel was fine. Rooms were clean although I would like to have screens on the windows and most mosquito nets have holes in them. The best thing was the food...all meals were... More
