2/10 Poor

The Red Buffalo house is a rundown bar with filthy rooms that they have taken good photos of to scam people. The grounds of the place look bad and the place feels unsecured with lots of people in the bar area. The bathroom of room was very tiny with a tiny sink that I could not use. To sum it all up, I woke up to a flooded room bse the bathroom roof leaks. There was no staff on site in the morning untill I had to leave to find another place to freshen up

8/10 Very Good

I stayed at Red Buffalo House hotel and it was generally a good experience. The hotel has an excellent location near Wilson Airport. Staff were friendly and bent over backwards to help. The breakfast and dinner was excellent and provided quite amazing value. I will stay here again when in Nairobi as the hotel provides almost unsurpassed value. Thank you Carol and Anne.
