The location is good - being situated in the center of the city like Nairobi. However, that has its own hazards with the traffic snarls around the area.
The property is more than 40 years and surely is very dated in all aspects. The rooms, the restaurants and overall facilities need major overhauling in every respect - features, equipment, service delivery and upkeep.
Staff are friendly - WHEN THEY CHOOSE TO BE; otherwise, one is just a room # in this hotel which always is busy.
The Internet service is very flaky - as experienced in two recent visits and the standard answer is "that an upgrade is underway."
Unless there are reasons otherwise, there are better hotels in the city at a similar price.
