Went with a group for a safari so didnt choose this hotel myself. It was clean and comfortable, breakfast was not bad. It is in a leafy suburb of the city. Ok for a group trip.

Spent one night here while en-route to South Sudan, the hotel is located in a quiet part of Nairobi just by the Police Headquarters, staff are friendly and the rooms are a decent size with internet and Satellite TV. Bathrooms are nice with a powerful shower. I think it represents good value for money and I wish I had the chance to test the swimming pool as it looked decent.

This is a very good property in Nairobi, and a great value for price. The rooms are cute, and well priced. There is a decent swimming pool, and a good lunch place. In addition, the bar is quite good. There are several business travelers here. It is well located near the Pan Afric, and safe, because across from the police.

I stayed here for 7 nights, and was given a room on the east wing. This proved to be a quiet area, colleagues closer to the elevator were a bit disturbed by this (late night arrivals). Good beds, spotless rooms, large bathroom and decent internet made for a pleasant stay. Attentive staff, friendly and safe atmosphere was also appreciated. Breakfast was a treat, and dinners were good. Also tried the bistro one evening, which was also very good. I wouldn't know all that much about prices, but found the gift shop reasonable. Quiet area, too. A nice walk to downtown, but remember a hat and sun screen...

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator.

After almost 24 hours traveling and landing in Nairobi, being picked up from the airport and driven straight to the Heron was a treat. Charming interiors, warm and friendly staff and very clean and comfortable rooms.

Guests were a mix of business people and tourists. The restaurant was busy during breakfast and pretty quiet by lunch time. There was also a café with a big, shiny espresso machine (too bad we didn't get a chance to give it a try).

Located in a quiet, tree-lined street, the hotel is about a 20-minute walk to downtown Nairobi.

Room Tip: We were happy with the higher floor, corner room we got overlooking the front entrance of the hotel.
