“Good for stop over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

Stayed here before catching flight back to UK. A good hotel - clean and good sized rooms. Great showers!! Felt safe as there was security to get into the complex. A few little shops/stands were at the entrance to the complex - ideal for getting last minute souvenirs.
Had a very nice evening meal here and prices very fair. Good atmosphere and ideal base to get to the airport the next day. Good hotel!!

Room Tip: overlook the garden where possible - a lot quieter

Stayed here 2 nights before and after safari. It was one of three choices offered by our safari company. Small, garden like atmosphere. Clean, comfy, staff very helpful. Currently doing some upgrades and renovations. No air conditioning, but didn't need it (September). Close to downtown, but security was plentiful-felt totally safe. We enjoyed it!

Room Tip: We were on 3rd floor and no elevators. Staff were very eager to carry our luggage. Not sure if there...

We got a good price deal on the hotel from a website, the published rates are v.high and can get much better hotels at that price. The rooms were neat and clean. Stayed there twice, both times the rooms were clean and staff was v. polite and nice. No TV remote and No AC. Got really hot on 1 night, had only table fan in the room. Fridge was noisy so switched it off. Secure parking and good area. Building looks old but rooms have been renovated and balconies included in the room area to increase room space. No Lift. Can get on to highway A104 (if i remember name correctly) easily to go to airport or towards other cities of Kenya. GPS will show "Boulevard Hotel" only, not Sentrim, even there board doesn't have Sentrim on it.Breakfast was excellent. When we requested fro early breakfast they arranged for that too. Would recommend this over Sentrim 680 which was our biggest confusion due to location.

My tour operator booked me into this hotel for the night before I flew to Amboseli. The hotel room was small but clean. I had no problems with hot water early in the morning. The staff were very helpful when i wanted to check out some local food and I enjoyed my dinner. The next day I had an early flight and was there 5 minutes after the breakfast buffet time. Everything was in place so I managed to have breakfast and leave in 15 minutes.

Nothing negative about this hotel; good service, great location, nice rooms.....though the building seems a bit old, but i guess thats the old city charm of it.

Room Tip: Book online!

Typical location pre- or after-tour. Not a fancy hotel, a bit old, but clean and with a good shower. Located in the University area and close to the city center, it is good for a walk. It seems a safe place. Restaurant and breakfast does not worth it. A bit overpriced.

Having read the previous reviews, thought this place was awful....surprised and pleased they were wrong. Ok it had a few issues, but as a 1-night pre GAP Tour it was spot on. We didn't arrive until after midnight so it was literally a bed and shower the next morning. Breakfast wasn't anything special, but did what it said on the tin!! It was a bit dated, but for Nairobi it was not bad.
