This is my third long term trip to Nairobi and fourth hotel. This is an African style hotel, but with extra amenities. I stayed at the nearby European style luxury hotel for far too long before I found Comfort Gardens. Some of the issues mentioned by other reviewers (hot water occasionally missing, confusion over the bill) are also endemic to most other Nairobi hotels including the luxury hotel. In addition, Comfort Gardens had far superior wifi, MUCH nicer towels, and plenty of storage space. If you want good television and overpriced, expensively decorated rooms, go to the luxury hotel. If you want a superior garden to lounge, swim, or have a simple meal in, go to Comfort Gardens. Most importantly, the staff was outstanding -- hospitable, attentive, and very professional. Thank you especially David, Tabitha, the Chef, and Rose. I recommend the intermediate sized rooms with small kitchens for comfort and value; if you cannot make stairs you should ask for a room on the ground floor as there is no elevator. If you are working/visiting the UN/Embassy area, they now have a free shuttle, which is most convenient in rainy season although it is otherwise an easy walk. I agree that you should avoid the drivers to/from the airport. and just take a JimCab taxi.
