“A very good place to stay on Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

In a city that is known to be dangerous and unsafe, Nairobi ( or "Nairobbery" as some people refer to it), it is nice to have a safe and quiet hotel to stay in.We landed in Nairobi airport and was pleased that we were able to get someone to pick us up from the Hotel Troy. While it is not the cheapest place to stay ( and most nice hotels in Nairobi are not cheap), it was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was reasonably good and the staff was friendly. It is close to the Nairobi National Park which is convenient if you want to visit the park. Don't be taken aback by the dirt road en route to the hotel. The numerous gates are all part of the security. I loved the sound of the birds in the morning.

This fairly new property offers comfortable, well appointed rooms and good food. The location is excellent, being near a number of attractions and shopping, yet off the main road, quiet and secure. I was able to arrange transportation to Nairobi National Park and the elephant orphanage through the hotel, as well as an airport drop off. The staff were pleasant and helpful. A couple of minor quibbles - no cable TV in rooms, and the wifi was not very reliable.

Have visited hotel Troy a number of times so close it is to major attractions the mamba village, KWS animal orphanage, the bomas, galleria shopping mall, it is located away from noise, very clean and homely.

This property offered comfortable beds, good breakfast, privacy and quiet. It was a bit hard to find but was in a good location not far from the Galleria Shopping Centre and Nairobi Wildlife Park. The dinner in their dining room was delicious, and the staff were friendly and most helpful. For those coffee lovers, the Galleria has a great coffee shop where you can get not only good coffee, but delicious mango milkshakes!

As you would have noticed, accommodation in Nairobi is expensive. We were just looking for a good clean and reasonably priced hotel en route to Lamu. We found this in the Troy, $150 for 2 adults and 2 children in one room. The rooms are basic but clean and for a place just to put your head down, very good value. Also conveniently situated, in a very quiet neighbourhood, 20 mins from Wilson and 20 mins from Talisman restaurant. Also, used Aircab at very reasonable hourly rates and great service, there number is +254 728 888 320 or mail dispatch@aircab.co.ke
