The Sankara hotel is a beautifully new and modern hotel in Nairobi and I would recommend it to anyone who is travelling on business or pleasure. The rooms are lovely, the hotel facilities (gym, restaurant, business centre) are very good and the overall ambiance is lovely. But it is let down by two things: Firstly the food selection is not...

Overall Sankara is a good business hotel. Gym and club are decent, though can get crowded during the week. Leaving a different curio by the bed each night as a small gift to the traveller is a nice touch. Rooms are tastefully decorated. Staff is friendly. The hot water was an issue during the period that I stayed; I felt...

Sankara hotel is Westlands is well located and, though no parc or lush greens, feels very comfortable. Next to Sarit centre (a small mall) and close to well know bars and clubs. Management is excellent and for a premium you can enjoy the facilities of the clubroom. Only two restaurants, a outdoor pool on the rooftop (windy) and excellent gym....

The hotel has very pleasant staff and the facilities are first class. Ideal for business meetings providing you can get people to come to you. However if your business is in the industrial area or out of town leave plenty of time to commute as the traffic is painfully slow.
