Although the hotel's website says 5KM from the airport it is closer to 8KM! Anyhow it is on the Mombasa Road which is the main road from the city centre to the airport. This is a new modern hotel with very well furnished and comfortable bedrooms. The welcome was friendly and the staff very helpful.
Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel is a bonus with tea and coffee facilities in the bedrooms. Breakfast was disappointing in both the selection and the quality!
Like most Nairobi hotels it is overpriced and unless quick access to the airport is essential then there is better value closer to the city centre but be prepared for the traffic jams coming from the city centre. The hotel does have an airport shuttle service for which they charge. Since this was my third visit to Nairobi and on the first established a good relationship with Geoffrey a taxi driver that is highly dependable and does not overcharge I used his services again. His number is +254703114172.
The hotel is in a very safe area and protected behind a substantial security wall and I felt safe and relaxed during my stay.
