This hotel was booked by our tour company and we were very happy with their selection. The room was fairly small but suitable for a single night and the beds, although sagging a little, afforded a very good nights sleep. The room was airconditioned and with a cool setting the thick doona was perfect. The shower was a bit of... More

The hotel is conveniently located close to everything you need. Yaya centre is a 5 minutes drive and down-town Nairobi is also 5 to 20 minutes depending on traffic.

Initially, my company booked me in the Silver Springs Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya, where I supposed to stay from 8-30 August 2014, but I checked out after seven days when a Shift Manager, obviously supported by his Operations Manager, started a fishy games inventing additional charges - with obvious intention to "get something" under the table.

This is a simple, no frills hotel that was suitable for my single overnight stay in Nairobi. It has good security and I felt safe. Rooms were small and simple and included an AC unit which was useful. The bed was comfortable. The hotel was quiet.

The best thing about this hotel is its location, directly opposite the excellent Nairobi Hospital and Doctor's plaza. In fact this is really the only real positive about the place. The hotel itself is bordered by the main road and a boundary wall with no grounds or gardens to speak of. Taking a walk means negotiating the human traffic outside... More
