I spent a quick overnight here on landing in Nairobi and before I headed out on safari. The benefit to this hotel is its location, quite near the airport international flights land at and also the Wilson airstrip, where most flights out to safari locations depart from.
The hotel is really a business-type hotel. Well appointed, comfortable but pretty non-descript in terms of mood and ambiance. The shower is worth the price of admission, a glorious waterfall showerhead, but the bathroom is not its own room, but rather the shower and toilet are separated from the bedroom by only frosted glass. One might want to think twice about this arrangement if sharing a room with someone you're not terribly intimate with!
The room was good sized and linens and everything clean. The beds are pretty hard though, it wasn't the gentlest night's sleep.
Breakfast was excellent, a nice buffet spread and made to order hot food like eggs, omelet. Coffee hit the spot and service was excellent. I'd stay here again for all the reasons I mention here.
