We hesitate a lot before booking at this hotel. We're very familiar with the Fairmont hotels and there is one in Nairobi. But a last minute special deal convince us to try it.
Well we were not disappointed, in fact we would go back there our next time. The hotel feel like a museum on the first couple floors. With all the pictures and rich wood decorations, we had the impression our journey had already started. The main asset of this hotel is undeniably the staff. Not just friendly, charming! Lots of free services, wi-fi and mostly the free storage. Our East Africa journey was divided on several portions and Nairobi was our hub. What a luxury to be able to leave some souvenirs and extra clothing behind for a few days. The whole process is secured and easy... it made our trip so much enjoyable.
In total, we were there three times and our rooms were immaculates. Flat tv, comfortable bed and stylish furniture. Personally I think the rooms could use a little refresh (wall, carpet, style) but my wife found it charming... so it's a personal view.
We were on our honeymoon... an example the staff goes over their head to please you... they left us a little surprise three times!
Thumbs up to the staff, the Torn Tree Café and the restaurant... the checking out process is a little too complicated and long... to improve in the future.
