The staff here are amazing. You will get the royal/celeb treatment even at the affordable price that it is. You are able to get anything you need anytime (water, food etc), not the same at all places in Africa. There's a really nice pool, restaurant, gym and other facilities with a great view of Nairobi. I was unwell after travelling...

I really enjoyed it. I used to hold my meetings there quite often. It is clean, staff are friendly and the food good. The soup at lunch was great but meat was a bit oversalted. The dessert was great so was the fresh juice.

I really liked the hotel. Rooms are nice. Pool was in a little need of a vacuuming but it was nice. The gym was well equipped and it's in a good location. All the staff (except the checkout man) were great! The problem I had was at checkout. I'm pretty sure when I booked the room that it said breakfast...

Terrible place. Rooms are not mosquito proof. I woke up covered in bites. The air conditioner doesn't actually cool the room, just makes a loud noise. The wardrobe lights stayed on all night, illuminating the room. Book elsewhere!
