This is my usual hotel in Nairobi as it is perfectly located for me. So while its not fantastic, its very consistent; check in and out is pretty efficient, food is good, staff super friendly and as long as you get one of the renovated rooms - the rooms are great.
The setting is really nice, park like gardens although it can be a complex to navigate your way around, but security is always on hand to guide you. Breakfast by the poolside is really nice and there's a really nice bar lounge for a nice spot to wind down at the end of the day.
Wi-Fi is less than ideal.
