Staff, views, and room all fantastic! The restaurant has a great selection with an international buffet during breakfast and lunch. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Rooms are large and clean with great view.

The location of this hotel is perfect to avoid the traffic of Nairobi.
The hotel is close to the airport, which makes easy access, and an ideal location
Staff were very accommodating to our needs (3 year old daughter) with an excellent choice of restaurants and bars overlooking Nairobi National Park.
The rooms were clean and spacious with all the expected facilities of a new hotel.
Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Nairobi.

stayed here a couple of times during our trip as it is handy for the airport. first night we were on floor 3 deluxe room overlooking the park. Very comfortable but really not worth the extra money because 2nd time we were in a standard room on 4th floor with city view. this room had a small balcony (i think all 4th floor rooms do) and a much more interesting view. the room had slightly fewer ameneties like only a shower not a bath and it seemed a little "tired" compared to the deluxe room but was still comfortable.
food was delicious and the restaurant and bar area very comfortable with a lovely outside area. Staff were extremely friendly and couteous. would stay here again

Nice family hotel away from the trafiic. just right behind our room was the nairobi national park which was great to keep the kids busy. we could watch ostrich,antelopes,zebras from our room .In the evenings there was live music and a band singing.
Breakfast spread was good.
make sure you ask for park facing room and not the road facing...
