Overall an oasis in the edgy city that is Nairobi. The security guard on every floor (not to mention the inspection of our arrival taxi's chassis with a mirror) certainly made us feel safe although somewhat unsettled! The staff were very helpful - arranging, for example, a dinner reservation (inc taxi) at Carnivore and other transport in a safe and efficient manner and at a fair price. The Thorntree cafe and poolside bar's eatery were, for Africa, excellent with a wide choice of food and drink. Rooms are comfy with in-room safe. Its definitely worth shopping around for rates on the internet as a few websites have far cheaper deals than the rack rate. Whilst we were wary of venturing outside in the hours of darkness, we had little hassle wandering around during the day (a trip up to the Kenyatta Conference Centre's roof is recommended).
