We stayed for two nights to explore Nairobi town. Earlier we spent 7 nights in Safari Park Hotel for conference, and had enough and moved to this hotel.
It is conveniently located, near the city centre, on an apparently safe street to walk during the day time. We saw two other hotels on the same street and found some good restaurants within walking distance. Especially an Eritrean restaurant 'Red Sea' on Lenana rd is recommended -- 15 min. walk, reasonable and we could watch football.
The hotel is rather like a long-stay apartment, and looked old, certainly better to renovate.
The room and the service are very basic, but we thought it was good value considering the location and safety. The water pressure of shower was quite low but it was still possible to clean ourselves with hot water. There was no safe in the room but we could leave valuables at the reception, and we did not have any problem. Breakfast was simple but pleasant -- a chef was readily available to cook our egg. The swimming pool looked well maintained and crowded with families probably because it was on weekend. The guests seemed to be a good mixture of people of different ages, purposes and nationalities, which we liked.
