I love this place. It's a little older and there are always some snafus, but hey, this is Africa. But there's a sort of old world elegance to the place, something that you can feel rather than describe. It's a feeling of comfort and ease that I don't get at other places.
The rooms are huge - even the Studio rooms - so you can stretch out and unwind as you sit looking out over the city. I love the balcony! What a view!
And you are right downtown. Perfect location for whatever business you have in Nairobi.
The furniture could be nicer, but it's sufficient; the bathrooms could be more modern, but they work (mostly); the TV could be bigger and better, but I didn't come to watch TV. All in all, for a hundred bucks, it's not bad. The same price (actually more) at the Hilton puts you in a shoebox. Here you can stretch out like you were back home, and relax.
And isn't that what counts most?
