The Sirona is a very friendly place in a nice garden setting, making it a rather unique offering in Nairobi at its price. The public areas - bar, terrace, guest lounge, and restauruant - are nice and cozy in an old-fashioned way. The rooms are characterful but basic and have not seen much maintenance in a while. They have parquett floors, bare white-washed walls, and a wood-clad ceiling, a comfortable bed with mosquito net, desk and wardrobe. There is a TV receiving one program. The bathrooms are old and mine had several broken fixtures, but everything I needed worked. The place is reasonably clean but not to Swiss standards. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located in a gentrifying part of Nairobi and it is safe enough to walk about, yet there is not much to see in the immediate eighbourhood. However, the National Museum is in walking distance as are a number of academic institutions. If the hotel won't get renovated in the near future (and it has real potential), it may get knocked down to be replaced by condos like those on surrounding plots.
Overall, the hotel is nice but guests should know that it is not a luxury place and requires accepting a few compromises. I'd recommend it for a short stay for those who value the garden setting over more modern ammenities.
