Very clean rooms. Give u extra time to sleep if u come in late. The reception should be stocked with small necessities like tooth brush and tooth paste for people who might have forgotten to come with theirs. Mornings can be a bit noisy as its next to a busy bus stop. The bar is well stocked and breakfast is...

I stayed here for two nights. My room, 107, was rather quiet, had a spacious bed and was clean all over. The hotel is okay for just sleeping. The breakfast is very simple, nothing to complain about. The only problem to me was the distance to the city centre. Avoid taxi drivers in front of the hotel, they ask KES...

Stayed for one night in transit.The hotel is located in a busy, crowded, run down area with dingy buildings. The area seems never to sleep at all, it is noisy throughout the night. Reception was "cool" to put it mildly. Had an ok dinner. Mosquitoes made sleep impossible. Hotel offered mosquito net but couldn't use it because of the dust....

Stayed here 2 nights in transit - chose it because it was relatively cheap and not far from airport (about 1/2 hour).

Hotel looks recently built...

This hotel is simply terrible. No lift (was on the 4th floor), no power socket in the room, no WiFi - although they advertise there is - but the WiFi when we visited was an old fashioned modem to be shared between the guests. Obviously, that does not work very well without a power socket. Rooms are scruffy, bathrooms even...
