“Economy class hotel in City Center”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

I have been staying in this hotel for the past 4 years and witnessing improved service. I stay on the 10th floor. The housekeeping is very good on this floor. You can reach most of the government offices and private establishments by walk. The restaurant serves good food and reasonably priced. Nice place to stay.

Well the hotel despite the best location in the city is the worst in terms of security despite the two guards at the gate the reception personnel needs more training in customer care for that's the poorest there attitude is horrible the rooms are old bedsheets too old the hotel needs serious repairs but not all is bad restaurant staff are cool food better but the need to do something on the prostitutes who hang around the lift and the gamblers to improve on there staffs attitude

I have been in this hotel on several occasions. The 'deluxe' rooms are cleaner tha the rest. Great location in the city center. Breakfast was great. Take extra care with your belongings; I lost a phone and an electric shaver and I didn't get much help from the staff in charge

Hi, I stayed at the 680 for 6 days I was there on business. Great hotel slap bang in the centre of town. Excellent for the business traveller who needs to be centrally located. Good security but a bit concerned as no control over who is coming in and out. Local hotel with a lot of local people.

The hotel has a great central location. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. There is a safe in the room and hotel security is very good. The hotel is very run down, if only it really did look like the pictures on the website! It is a little over price if I compare to an English travel lodge hotel. Nothing special but does you fine if u want a low budget central located hotel which is VERY safe.

Good hotel, reminded me of a large 1980s style business hotel.
Lots of function rooms with talks, meeting & shows going on, A Miss fabulous beauty competition was on while i was there! There is Security on every floor & I was soon on first name terms with the ever present security guards. Which I found to be easily more helpful than the reception staff.
Room was quite big, clean with a sky rise view of Nairobi. Breakfast very good, lots of good food to choose from. Plus a nice little Coffee shop downstairs too for a Kenyan tea & a quaint bookshop next door.
With a mixed variety of guests it was nice because I met a few fellow Tourists & some friendly Business folks over breakfast.
Its very centrally located & easy to walk within the CBD by day. A Taxis desk is at reception and security will encourage you to only go out at night if you go by Taxi & they know where you are going. Which as I was traveling alone made me fell very safe.
Not sure if I would stay here again as I noticed a few traveller/backpacker type places down the road which may have suited me better...but I wanted somewhere central & reasonably priced and this def is.
Also beware of tourist information touts hanging around in reception shop around first.
