I did not actually stay here but we stopped to have breakfast after a long flight and enroute to Samburu, on 7th June this year. The advantage of this hotel is obvious. It is the closest top hotel to the airport which saves you the time it takes to reach some of the hotels in the CBD thanks to Nairobi's chaotic morning and evening traffic. The breakfast spread was excellent and economical and the hotel did not charge for our guides even though we were casual visitors to the hotel.
The hotel is adjacent to Nairobi National Park, which is home to all the major animals except for elephants, and so the view at the dining area balcony is awesome. We saw a few birds but no animals on this occasion, but nobody minded. This was just the right pit stop for our safari. I strongly recommend this hotel for anybody arriving in Nairobi early morning and leaving straight for a game park. Stop here, have breakfast and then proceed. I have not stayed here yet as we are not contracted with the hotel, but that may change soon.
