Sankara Nairobi, Nairobi
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.

rip you off if you want to print.
nice hotel in great location. However they charge $.60 a page to print and didnt tell me only after i printed 50 pages for something i needed. This rate is outrageous espically in a country where for the amount they charge you can get a meal. I have traveled to over 160 countries never had i been charged for printing in a hotel and this hotel charges $300 a night and they have the nerve to charge so much for printing.

Our stay in Sankara
Sankara have very friendly staff from security infront and back, to house keepng. I congradulate the mgmt for all staff attitude to make us comfortable in every way. Great food and quality deco thru out building. The only thing that could have changed was the placement of batroom by the bed, should have been by the door. It' s a true 5 star hotel.
