There are some truly lovely hotels in Kenya. The Holiday Inn is not one of them. I chose the hotel because of the location. The nicer hotels, such as The Serena, are in town and so stuck in the traffic nightmare that is downtown Nairobi. The Holiday Inn is between Westlands and Parklands, so it's near many restaurants, bars, etc.
Apart from the location, the hotel was such a disappointment. The rooms are old, there was virtually no water pressure in the showers (I've had better showers in tents in the middle of the bush!), and the noise was ridiculous. The doors slam non-stop (mostly from the cleaning staff), you can hear people through the walls, etc.
Two redeeming qualities: The gym is fantastic, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
Other than those two qualities, this hotel is definitely not worth the ridiculous price.More
