Yes the rooms are a little tired but nevertheless we had a good nights sleep. We just wanted a night in Nairobi prior to going on safari and this hotel ticked all the boxes. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. The bar staff equally so, the restaurant staff too and the food was really good, what it said on the tin bar food. One real niggle is there were people just sitting out at the tables on the patio which was set up for diners clearly using it for smoking, we moved tables to avoid one very annoying woman virtually chain smoking who didn't appear to consume anything.
Breakfast served by the pool was a great start to the day and our Kenyan adventures and they literally had too much food to mention, great service too.
Overall I would be more than happy to visit this hotel again, it was great value for money and a great stop off point.
