                    • The public areas were appealing and comfortable, overall the stay was very pleasant. The staff were welcoming and helpful, towels were thick and large, the poolisde restaurant was really great.

                      Fairly good option in Nairobi, furniture in the room is dirty.

                      Mirror in our bathroom was broken 2 days to fix.

                    • Great location, a good hotel and once again the staff were quick and efficient. The room was large enough for 3 people and was very comfortable, the breakfast buffet was very tasty.

                      Internet costs were far too high.

                      The staff are very narrow minded.

                      Very long service, old Old rooms and the toilet flush did not work well and we needed to get a plumber to fix that.

                      The service in the restaurants is slow including the lobby restaurant.

                    • Pro decent central location, typical business hotel and particularly front office staff like Martha. Rooms are just ok and service is good and meals are delicious as well as the elegancy of the restaurants. The outdoor pool is small, don't expect too much.

                      The tv is very old and poor quality and the shower curtain.

                      The first stay was a noisy one and internet was slow. Curtains were also badly stained and filthy, the food was very expensive.

                    • The location was great, the staff during our stay were very friendly and helpful, lobby appearance were impressive. The service was absolutely wonderful, the room was spacious, clean and appeared to be recently remodeled, tried the dinner buffet at night, was a good choice too.

                      Scary hotel and not nice front desk. Cons are expensive wifi.

                    • Central location in Nairobi, anyway the manager would stop the refund and I paid only the difference check out, the hotel is beautiful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The atm in the lobby is very convenient, service is great and in room internet, safe box and ironing board is available. Hosts a number of good bars and also the restaurant dont offer famous Kenian beef and other expected dishes.

                      Old fashioned dining area and bathrooms, don't stay here, 's really not worth. Price is very expensive, not clean and the towels are yellow stained.
