The Sarova Panafric is a bit hit or miss.
The location is great - from a coming from the airport point of view; not really good at all if you need to be in Westlands or Gigiri.
The terrace restaurant is a nice breakfast spot.
The rooms are decent sized, and the bed is comfortable enough.
I stayed two nights on two different occasions. The first occasion the room was thrid floor, and although traffic side, it was relatively quiet, excusing noises from the restaurant staff cleaning up the pool area from an occasion the night before.
The second occasion, the room was second floor and horrendous. The bathroom was only casually clean. The noise AND fumes from the traffic were almost unbearable. The air conditioner didn't work, and mosquitoes were everywhere. There are no nets on the bed and no screen on the patio door, so once you open it, they're in!
The wireless is good; and the service is courteous, if a bit slow during "rush hour".
So... if you get the right room, Sarova Panafric is a good hotel to stay in.
