This hotel is an old, colonial-style hotel. The rooms are OK, bathrooms are large. Breakfast is very good and extensive. The lush gardens of the hotel make this a nice retreat from the frantic city. The room doors could be better isolated against noise, however.

Enjoy the natural and super clean environment in Kenya. I never used the AC since there was natural and best air in my room due to its position, I'm sure this experience I have will remain in my thoughts always until I'm back in Nairobi
