  • A nice souvenir shop, excellent value hotel and its worth the price. Warm and friendly staff, beds extremely comfortable. In addition, the bar is quite good.

    The city is notorious for its overpriced dumps, Nairobi traffic can be very bad and also, the reconstruction causes the sauna to be unavailable.
