I stayed here at a client's recommendation for several days in August 2013. The hotel grounds are expansive, with an excellent breakfast buffet, swimming pools, lounges, business center, etc. The rooms were acceptable, with comfortable beds and black-out curtains (which were much appreciated considering how I arrived in Nairobi after 1am). Upon my arrival, I received a card inviting me to a cocktail reception put on by the head of guest services. This was a very pleasant experience, and I spent several hours getting to know people from all over the world, many of whom were in Nairobi for vacation while others were there, as I was, for business. Overall a great hotel that I will happily stay at again on my next trip to Kenya.
