I found the location of this hotel really convenient for the airport and with business meetings in the area. Traffic is an issue and you are only 30 minutes from the airport (that 4kms Nairobi time) and about an hour (6 kms rush hour time ) from the city center.
The rooms are really just average and while the lack for nothing they are really aimed at the business visitor. Bar fridge, coffee maker and bottled water supplied.
The beds are REALLY hard and could be considered uncomfortable .There is nothing to do in the area and you are not able to go for a walk or capture some local flavor.
The on-site restaurant is a tad expensive but once again it is well presented and convenient. A Spur steakhouse is also on site for a lesser price less fancy meal or just a drink.
Pool area is small but great and there is a basic gym onsite.
I will probably stay here again on my next trips
