My wife and I just returned from a several night stay before and after our safari. We booked our Nairobi hotel carefully after looking at tripadvisor and decided to stay here and it was nice. The hotel is about a 3.5 to 4 star by u.s. standards and a nice hotel for the area. The place feels very safe and we had no issues with any crime during our stay. Nairobi is not very safe to walk around for americans, but we walked a few blocks feeling safe. The hotel rooms are nice, nothing fancy, bit safe, quiet and comfortable to recover from jetlag and rest up for safari. There is a restaurant that serves good, basic food and a nice bar inside and a good outsde pool area with a bar. The gym is nice and there is no cost to use it, which was nice. Our beds in our room before the safafi were rock hard and very bad, but postsafari our room had much better beds and were fine. The room service food was rather good as well. Overall, it was a nice place to stay a few nights for feeling safe a quiet room with some road noise and a decent pool where you can eat a decent meal and their nice breakfast buffet is included. I recommend staying here a short time to rest up bdfore and after safari but thats it, not much to di in Nairobi, would stay again.
