The Hotel Embassy was a nice hotel in the heart of Nairobi. Nairobi itself is not terribly safe, however we had no issues at all at the hotel, and we stayed there a total of 5 nights. Definitely recommend it to any budget travelers. there is hot water, toilet seats (a luxury it would seem compared to certain other budget hotels in Africa) and the rooms are clean, though a little aged. The staff is friendly and helpful, the restaurant cooks some delicious East Indian-Kenyan dishes, and you are in the heart of downtown so close to all ammenities. No real safety deposit box, which is dissapointing, but you can leave valuables with the manager to pickup at certain times.
