BEWARE
This hotel is not at all the way it appears. The photo posted is NOT the room received. The room was extremely outdated and dirty. It can use a fresh coat of paint and new bedding, PLEASE. The bathroom was dirty and could use an old fashion on your knees scrubbing, and to add, new fixtures. This hotel is barely deserving of a 1 rating. It is located near no restaurants or shops of any kind. If the wifi worked I was going to go to Hotel.com in search of another hotel. I went down to express my concerns and was immediately ask to wait for management. I told him about the photo online and he immediately cut me off and told me he would upgrade the room at no cost which he did. The upgraded room was larger and was not as dirty. Please take my advise and think twice about this hotel. Being from the U.S. this hotel would be considered a motel and would not hit the rating scale.

I needed a hotel in Nairobi for two nights and one day in transit to our safari at Masai Mara Reserve. We loved the hotel for the ambiance, location and a two thumbs up for the included buffet breakfast which was delicious. The dinner at the hotel restaurant was great. I had a Nile fish which was superb. We also had a late lunch at the outside bar/restaurant and was treated to two for one beers and drinks and great food there as well.

I was only there one night, but it was a wonderful stay. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful, I felt like I was a queen in her palace!
