We chose this hotel as it is close to our daughter's apartment in Westlands where she is staying during a semester abroud in Nairobi.She could walk to us and we could get an understanding of her life in Kenya. We stayed two nights before heading off to safari in three game parks, and again upon our return.. It is the newest hotel in Nairobi and it showsThe hotel rooms were smallish, but very comfortable. The bathrooms sparkling with a great soaking tub, and fresh flowers at the sink.The staff was very accomodating with taxis. information, helping our daughter meet us etc. We enjoyed an afternoon in the pool (complete with glass window to the ground 7 stories below) before cathcing our late night flight home. Due to hieghtened security alerts, there were metal detectors and baggage search upon our return. I did not mind that at all. The wine bar and restaurants were wonderful. I would definately recommend The Sakara.

Nairobi is a hell of a place (it used to be nice but now the place is overcrowded, very polluted and traffic-jams come close to those of India). As we have decided to start gently our safari trip in Kenya, we have chosen to spend 2 nights here before heading to Naivasha and Masai Mara. We have not regreted this choice as this hotel has revealed a very good "landing point". The room, food and service were all quite good. The friendly concierge has also helped us to book a taxi for a day drive to see some interesting places in Nairobi (elephant orphanage, giraffe center and a few shops here and there)!
Most definitely a good stay for us!

+ Efficient airport transfer
+ Good security
+ Rooms are modern, clean and well lit.
+ Great location. There is a small mall (Sarit Center if I am not mistaken) located right next door. However, the Westgate Mall is a much better bet. It has a Kazuri Beads Shop and a fairly large, modern cafe which serves decent food. To get to Westgate, the hotel arranged for taxi pick up and drop off. The taxi fare can be charged directly to the room which makes it very convenient and easy. It costs us less than USD5 taxi fare return for a ride that is about 7 mins one way. Down the road is also the nightlife area with some good bars.
+ The Asian restaurant, Muhibbah serves decent South-east Asian cuisines. The roof-top bar is also a good place to have an early evening drink.
+ Angsana Spa standard is comparable to the ones in South-east Asia. The Thai therapists are highly skilled. Highly recommend their massage services.

Located in the bustling Westlands district of Nairobi, the Sankara is close to several malls, restaurants, and local businesses. Given Nairobi's awful, awful traffic, this location is a godsend to travelers unacquainted with the city. The hotel is an oasis of calm with understated, elegant interiors, wonderful restaurants, and comfortable rooms. The Thai restaurant is absolutely fantastic--and the food authentic. You can't beat the rooftop bar/lounge. The staff were extremely accommodating, even with more difficult requests. I was very impressed.

So I was at the beautiful hotel recently and I must say the service is remarkable, especially at their boutique. The ladies are efficient, kind, they work with dilligence and their welcoming smiles will always make one want to visit the boutique. They are not clueless on what they are selling, as in every item has its own story which I found to be very outstanding, that aside, the service is excellent, world-class. One upside though was the constant lack of top up cards. The ladies were kind enough to actually go out of their way n got someone to fetch some from outside. That I would rank as WORLD CLASS service but the management should ensure the boutique is always fully stocked with the basics like airtime n spare the ladies the embarassment.
