We stayed here for 2 weeks. We had 2 laptops and an iPad stolen from our locked room in the 30 minutes we took to have breakfast.
The restaurant never had half the meals on the menu, they would lie to us and tell us that they defiantly had the item today, then take 15 minutes to come back and tell us they did not. We were the only ones in the restaurant.
The showers are terrible and rarely hot, and there is big enough pressure to flush the toilets properly, so you are regularly having to use the plunger! There are also a lot of Mosquitos, and you find yourself captive in your mosquito net at night! There are about 4 channels, football and !3 other local ones and all this for an inflated price!!!
The area feels really sketchy, it is dirty on the Street and there are a lot of loud meatbars.
This is the only place I have been in the world where you don't want to carry your valuables on the street, and can't trust the hotel, not in the safe and sure as hell not the rooms. Where does that leave you!!
We have moved hotels, wiped the slate clean and are going to give Nairobi another go.
