We stayed there at the beginning of our safari and at the end. It was fine for a short stay, nothing spectacular but more than adequate for staying pre and post safari. Given the prices of hotels in NBO, it is a "reasonable" value. Some rooms are bigger than others. There is no air conditioning at the hotel. They offered a fan. It was sort of "chilly" when we were there and didn't need the fan; however, I don't know how happy I would be with no AC if staying there during the hot season).
Service was good.
The food in the restaurant that we ate at ( main floor) was fine.Breakfast was NOT good and had a minimal selection of food choices.
Of note, there was a huge cockroach on the bar ( attached to restaurant) that we found, but, I think that can happen anywhere. Never saw one in the rooms though.
