We stayed here for two nights prior to departing on a safari. Even after reading the great reviews I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel in the middle of Nairobi. The hotel is great, nice and spacious, lovely grounds, free wifi.
The building we stayed in had no lifts and we were on the top floor. Our bags were delivered to the room so this wasn't an issue for us, if you had trouble with stairs it would be difficult.
The hotel has a list of taxi drivers they recommend if you want to go out to attractions. Our taxi driver was great, as we were able to get cash out at the hotel reception we didn't have any on us. He took us to the elephant orphanage, then to a money machine so we could withdraw cash, before taking us to the giraffe centre. Make sure you agree a price before you leave the grounds.
This hotel has great security, our taxi from the airport was checked by armed guards prior to entering the street, then again when we got to the hotel gates. Our bags went through an xray before leaving the car park and we had to go through a metal detector. We felt very safe at this hotel.
I would recommend and would stay here again.
