In my previous ( first) review on kingdom Garden Hotel in Nairobi, I was incorrectly asserted that there was a problem in newly installed hot water shower system in this hotel we stayed. The fact is that after my review published on December 13, 2012, my fellow tourist in the same travel group corrected me that they too initially had the same issue like I had. However, they went to the front desk. With the help of the staff, they found that the water system actually was working fine after they were shown how to turn on the knob. I was probably too tired to go to front desk. I therefore stand to correct it and offer my apology to the management of Kingdom Garden Hotel for the 'only' negative comment. Even though they had gracefully accepted my review and sought for improvements, it still says a lot about their dedication and caring of their customers.
Also there is some added convenience to stay in this lovely hotel which I failed to mention: cross the street, you will find a new, modern mini super market styled grocery which provided everything tourists need, from over counter medications, packaged convenient food, cleaning agent, to fresh fruits. All are available with reasonable prices. Kenya is noted for their delicious mangos and bananas, thus we were able to load us with packages of fresh, fully ripe mangos from this grocery into the vehicle and enjoyed them along the trip. When you are in Kenya, never miss the chance to enjoy their mangos. Of course, we were pleasantly surprised that every hotel or lodge we stay, we were always first greeted by smiling staff with a glass of freshly squeezed mango juice upon our arrival. It's refreshing, not just the juice itself, but the homely services in particular. And, kingdom Garden is certainly one of them!
