Great business stay hotel with expensive food
The check in process was amazingly slow and took almost 45 mins. The room was great but TV was not working and neither was the kettle so general maintenance of the rooms was questionable. Good insulation so no neighbor noise. Quiet. Good garden via over Jacaranda hotel. Convenient location for business meetings either at hotel which is quite pricy for food and snacks - better cross the road to Sarit centre that has News Cafe, Java, Brood and other small eateries to hold a meeting. Also business services like DHL, copying print center etc. Great centre for quick on-the-run-business. Hotel is pricy for food and tips. Ok for a beer but definitely go out for food.

Excellent in every way.
This is a lovely hotel to stay at in Nairobi. Its staff is excellent and attentive, the rooms are comfortable, well-designed and well-kept. The buffet breakfast is excellent - one of the best I had in Kenya. I would stay here again.

Very good but be aware of a/c problem
Nice, modern, comfortable. Friendly staff. All 4+ quality, except a/c that is not responding to preferred temperature. Either on=> very cold or off=> stuffy and warm. I had the same problem a month earlier in another room so I think its a general issue. Pool is small and very few lounges.
