Good hotel in the centre of town. Large clean, comfortable rooms. Wired internet (wireless in the lobby), heated outdoor pool, decent gym and quite good food. One of the best hotels I've visited in Africa. Not a boutique hotel, but not as bland as some of the chains of corporate offerings. Staff were very helpful, as well as very smiley.

I appreciate that all the rooms are suites, but the interior definitely needs a complete overhaul. I don't think the rooms have been refurbished since the 70s. The hotel now seems to cater primarily to mainland Chinese tourists, Staff were very friendly, especially at the restaurant. There is no wireless in the rooms, so Mac users, remember to bring your...

This is a hotel that has seen many years. It feels like a family house. Things have aged... but they still work. The food is nice, the lift is fast and the rooms are all suites.

Stayed here for one night before heading off on safari. Room spacious and clean. Breakfast served early so we could eat before our 6.30 departure. Trip booked through http://www.explorerkenya.com/ who were fab. Word of advice take some small change with you as everyone expects a tip.

A 3.5 rating would be more accurate and in context maybe even a 4, but don't expect a 5 STAR hotel and be disappointed... I found my suite to be a bit dated but clean and well appointed - not luxurious by any means, but also not lacking any amenities. Positives: plenty of space, comfortable bed, clean, all electrical appliances...

Stayed here during a 24-hour stopover in Nairobi and was quite disappointed. The hotel was advertised as a 5 star and my room as a suite but what I found when I opened the door was an old and smelly room. The level of cleanliness and decor are those of a 2 star hotel, but I could give the third...
