Given the location next to the Kenyan Parliament building, one would expect a top-of-the-line hotel. And maybe this is the best Nairobi has to offer. Certainly the lobby lounge was nice, and usually fairly full of well-dressed people. But we found the rooms (we had two different rooms on two different occasions) to be suffering from deferred maintenance--a towel rack in the shower almost pulled out of the wall, shower head that didn't seem to work right. The rooms were fairly clean, though we did find a roach belly-up near the sliding glass door one afternoon. They charge for internet (as most business hotels still do.) Service was friendly, and fairly prompt. Security is very tight--guards with mirrors looking under the buses and cars upon entry, bag check at the front door. This hotel is probably popular with diplomats and representatives of the international funding agencies.
