The Southern Sun hotel is a nice, clean, comfortable, safe place to stay in Nairobi and offers all the luxuries that the normal large chain hotels usually have, swimming pools, a gym, room service and a variation of restaurants. The gardens were very nice & well kept & the free wi fi in the bedrooms was a definite plus.
On the negative side our room was very average, it had no character, was dark and a little run down. We could also hear children screaming from the nearby playground all day and until 8pm which was a little bit of a nightmare as we were trying to sleep.
No iron in the room either.
