The hotel is situated in the middle of CBD of Nairobi. The rooms are clean although the wifi was a bit slow. The bathroom was fine and big enough. We enjoyed our breakfast and we were able to park our hired car in the basement. I was leaving very early in the morning and l realized that l needed some... More

The hotel location is the biggest advantage since this is in City Centre & very close to the Parliament. It takes around 45 mins - 75 mins (depending on traffic) to reach from Airport or Nairobi National Park but is a safer area compared to outskirts. Being a city centre the market closes early in the evening & there are... More

I last rated this hotel in late 2009 and am impressed with how much it has improved. Internet is now free and wireless reliable, depending on room. The rooms have been modernized, with improved bathrooms. There is still no air conditioning, but most rooms have an "air cooler" dehumidifier/fan unit. If you don't have one, they can move one to...

We went there for a night-out (to surrounding entertainment spots then slept in the hotel). There is a casino but we are not good at gambling. The hotel is reasonably priced at $100 per Kenyan couple (incl breakfast). The room felt old with a useless balcony (no nice views) that is enclosed with glass. The diner closes too early so...

The hotel is centrally located and saves you a lot when you are doing business in town as you can walk over to most places. The rooms are spacious but very ordinary and because i came there in September the weather was quite cool (too cold for some) so there's no need for air-conditioning. Nice but small bathrooms but ever... More

we wanted to have a hotel in a relative "safe" part of Nairobi, this is why we have choosen Sentrim 680. it is perfectly in the middle of the financial quartier, which seems quite OK in terms of security in daylight (with lot of guards), but we were warned to go out in dark. Our room was in the 4th,... More

I have been staying in this hotel for the past 4 years and witnessing improved service. I stay on the 10th floor. The housekeeping is very good on this floor. You can reach most of the government offices and private establishments by walk. The restaurant serves good food and reasonably priced. Nice place to stay.

I have been in this hotel on several occasions. The 'deluxe' rooms are cleaner tha the rest. Great location in the city center. Breakfast was great. Take extra care with your belongings; I lost a phone and an electric shaver and I didn't get much help from the staff in charge

Hi, I stayed at the 680 for 6 days I was there on business. Great hotel slap bang in the centre of town. Excellent for the business traveller who needs to be centrally located. Good security but a bit concerned as no control over who is coming in and out. Local hotel with a lot of local people.
