Not too far from airport, on the highway, really expensive considering the quality. The room had pretty dreadful views. The bathroom was not very clean. The bed was big and comfortable. People at reception were not very attentive or friendly. In general we felt the place lack charm.

Old property, wear and tear visible, even some worn out table edges scratched me while trying to reach for a power socket which again is not found at convenient spots! In terms of location, this was closer to my place of work, though far from city centre.

Had an overnight stay at this hotel; what a pleasant place it turned out to be; thank you for the hospitality. The shuttle was on time; the rooms were exquisite , enjoyed every minute of it. Just the price of the goodies in the room were too exorbitant; Ksh700 for a packet of potato crisps is just too much!!

This property is dated, and is located some distance from the city centre. It would only be recommended as a transit hotel as it is not far from Nairobi airport. The main drawcard of this property is it overlooks a National Park.

Tiralb reviewed this hotel quite accurately. I am surprised at some of the other reports that rate this hotel highly. it is the kind of place you stay when you are stuck in Nairobi for a night and want to avoid the traffic travelling into better hotels in the city.
