Clean rooms, friendly staff and central. Consistent great service on all occasions i have stayed with them. Great for business and near the arcades in case you are travelling with a child. The staff were able to pint out a hospital with personal recommendation.

Sankara Another fantastic stay at this wonderful hotel which is located in the heart of Westlands and ideal for business meetings in Nairobi. Firstly, it's important to highlight the fact that security is amazing. Obviously Nairobi has several issues ongoing at present and they embraced this by reassuring visitors that they are scanning everyone and everything that enters the building.... More

I loved the rooms. I had a great view overlooking malls. There was some nice art work too and I like that. Spa was really nice and although I had to book two days prior, I loved it. The buffet was on point and room service was excellent. Location absolutely great..proximity to malls too very nice. Definitely going back!!!
