Visited the Sarabi Rooftop Restaurant Bar at the Sankara hotel while visiting a friend on a trip to Kenya. The lady who served us by the name Ivy Kipsang had exceptional service and was very efficient in all her tasks. Kudos Ivy! Keep up!

We came for a drink. On 7th floor and we got an amazing service from. A lady called Cynthia. Her smile is make it all. She was kind and when a bit late on one of the drinks she apologize. Wish all the staff in Nairobi will be like that's. She deserve the best. We will. Come again

Great location, great service especially at the breakfast restaurant. Staff are generally very nice. Management was very helpful to extend Platinum elite benefits to my family. Very cool! Lounge is good. The highlight was sushi on one of the days ! Drinks options are good variety. The only thing to improve is housekeeping who could not get me a toiletry I liked and wanted to buy. After 5 calls, they were still confused !!
