A good hotel in a very good location. Very safe with lots of security. Medium price range. Rooms basic but very clean and recently renovated. A good relaxing bar within the hotel

Room Tip: You must ask for a room at the back of the hotel, away from the main street and the nighclub directl...

At least 30 mins for check-in. Rooms are very basic - no aircon, beds very basic. No hot water in the mornings. Free loud music the whole night from a bar/pub nearby. Good luck!

Though very central the 680 is very noisy from the inside with phones ringing at all hours and from the outside thanks to clubs. The staff are very variable and some will openly beg money from you. Bar is full of working girls who can be quite pushy.

I'm suprise to see so many bad reviews for this hotel. We stayed there few days in August 2011 and we realy like this place. Rooms are not to big but clean and cosy, there is nice restaurant, wireless inrernet access.And the hotel staff were very nice and helpful for us. We kept all our valuable items in room safe box and we felt secure. The security staff , which is on each floor always smile to us and when he saw us he push the lift buttom for us. I agree, there is a litte noise at night, because Sentrim 680 is located in centrum of Nairobi, surranded by many restaurants and shopping center. But the price is realy good, you cann't find anything better in Nairobi for this price.
It was realy good choice for us.

Stayed in the 680 for 4 nights while on business in Nairobi. The room was comfortable and had no security problems. Appreciated the guard on every floor. The reception staff could cheer up a bit. The hotel advertised as having smoking rooms - but this is not the case. I had booked a smoking room, but on arrival was told that there was no smoking facility. However, the Duty Manager dealt with this amicably and I was impressed by his efforts. Breakfast and dinner in the restuarant was fantastic. Will definately stay here again

This hotel is extremely basic, the staff were rather unhelpful and we felt unsafe.
There was a tented restaurant across the road that played loud music until 3am on a Tuesday night, people opened and slammed doors continuously and the guards on our floor talked loudly and laughed all night which meant we only got 3 hours sleep.
Luckily our tv did work but there were only 3 channels, the fridge did not work however and the breakfast although plentiful made me sick.
We stayed for a month in Africa and this was easily the worst place we stayed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel
