Nice place, honest, professional, and friendly staff. A little expensive for food and drinks but other than that it’s a good quality property.

Sankara Hotel Great Place to Stay in Nairobi Kenya
Hotel was great. Bar and restaurant were great. Had a problem with the tour desk. Booked tour and they did not show up. So I went to a different hotel and booked the same tour, that went as scheduled.

Great Stay in a very good location!
it was a great stay overall. I have enjoyed it and will definitely go back for another stay. Booking an executive room was a plus as it provided a higher level of service and access to the Club Lounge which gave a private setting in calm and cozy environment. The only negative point that I noted, which was later corrected, was the toilet wasn't being cleaned thoroughly - it seemed like it was quickly being cleaned without proper products, which was of a bit of concern for us. We had to point it out to the management which rectified the issue.
