I used this hotel as the base for a 3 days conference held just up the road at the Convention Center. The rooms were somewhat dated but fully functioning. The views across the street were forgettable. The stand out were the highly proficient and friendly staff from the security at the front gate to the those cleaning the room. The... More

Arrived prior to the start of the safari, and was pleasantly surprised by the central location, security, hotel staff service and comfortable rooms. I wouldn't call it luxurious but boy it was a welcome relief after a long flight. The beds were comfortable and the staff were more than helpful. The breakfast was also great! Much better than 5 star... More

The Terrace restaurant has somewhat acceptable quality buffet. But don't go there for la carte order. I waited 40 min for a single burger during lunch time, and when it was served, the meat was completely over-cooked, super dry and tasteless. I couldn't return it back because I wouldn't wait for another 40min for that. Even the KFC at the... More

I stayed there flying in and out out of Kenya. Nice staff, not rooms. Relatively quite, considering Nairobi is not the quietest city in Africa. Very helpful staff that assisted me in exchanging money, finding restaurants, and providing transportation. Has room service, which is nice after a couple of weeks on Safari. LOL

We stayed here on our last night , before returning home after our safari. The hotel has a very high security level which unnerved me slightly. The staff were very nice and the bed very comfortable and breakfast was good

I liked the view and the service. There was a restaurant by the pool and it's very cozy and nice to have dinner at. I enjoyed my staying there. Also the stuff were so nice and helpful, the smile never leaved their faces. The hotel is located in downtown, so you're nearby everything; markets, shops and the exhibition center.
