This accommodation was booked for me to stay over night in transit through Nairobi airport. It was selected on the basis of cost and proximity to the airport. Firstly it is not that close to the airport but when the traffic is quiet then the journey time by taxi is around 20 minutes but only if the taxi driver knows exactly where it is. Signposting for the hotel is invisible at night. The airport taxi cost me KSh2600 for the single trip.
The accommodation is basic: a bed, mosquito net, TV (no remote), en suite bathroom (poor shower with cold water, no toilet seat) and no internet. There are no other facilities or room service. My mistake was to open the window for fresh air. Despite the mosquito net I was kept awake by the swarm of mosquitos that inhabited my room. So instead of a restful night I was awake for several hours, arising even earlier than planned to wait in the lobby, escaping the mosquitos, for the taxi pick up at 6.00am.
On the positive side. The room was clean. I felt secure. The hotel receptionist, Ronald was friendly and helpful as best he could be.
