We spent one night here, the hotel was neat and clean, the room was good and everything worked, staff were friendly. The Saab Royale is close to Wilson Airport which was convenient for our early morning flight, overall a good stay and I would use this hotel again.

The place is really good in terms of amenities, it is in a serene environment and a good place for a getaway. It is about 15km from the main road, the road is a little bit rough. The staff are friendly. My only issue is their food, we ordered only from their a la carte menu only for us to receive incomplete orders because they do not have some items but they still charged us full price. In addition to that, the food is not all that, they need to work on their food.

Price is good, breakfast included. Room is very clean and comfortable. A bit hot but they will give you a fan if needed. Not too far from either airport really. We had a twin room. Staff was excellent.

After a long flight the Saab Royale Hotel was a welcome start to our trip. The receptionist was very friendly and eager to please and Said, the doorman, made time to take us to an ATM. The room we had was spacious clean and well presented. The restaurant had a large choice of meals and as a vegetarian I had no problem. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, I just wish I could remember all of their names. We stayed here twice once at the beginning and again at the end of our time in Kenya. Would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity.

We appreciated the very friendly & helpful staff, who made us feel extra welcome when we arrived. They also helped to provide a mobile fan to combat the hotel's greatest weak point: no air conditioning. This omission is the only thing preventing me giving it five stars. Location is quite convenient if you are travelling regionally but not ideal if you intend to do a lot in Nairobi CBD since traffic into the heart of town and to the northern attractions can be brutal.

Luxury?? hotel where there is no hot water in the shower. The only solution is: what usually happens. Quite discontented and more attending to its price. The only good thing it's near to the airport, but... We didn't like anything

Comfortable hotel close to the airport, good location for short stay in case of late arrival and early departure. Also food is acceptable. Very comfortable the beds. Cannot comment all the services because of the short stay.

This is one of the best keep secrets in Nairobi for the price. Excellent and polite staff, clean rooms and common areas, nice restaurant with good pricing and good food. The lift was not working at check-in, but staff assisted with bags being taken up to the 3rd floor. I would definitely stay again.
