      Nice respite from the city. We got massages and ate lots of food. We initially tried to book through their website and our booking was lost so would recommend booking through Agoda :)

      Nice but overpriced”
      The hotel is nice but you can get better hotels with breakfast included for a cheaper price. One of the nights there was a loud wedding next door, they told us it would end at 9pm but it went on till 11pm. The room flooded after a shower. The room service took more than an hour to make a sandwich.

      Old charm hotel”
      We arrived early morning with a 24 hour layover which meant we were not staying overnight. The hotel accommodated an early check-in at 6am without charging extra, but the airport transfer cost to the hotel you do have to pay for. Staff are friendly and helpful. It's an old world charm hotel which I found very beautiful. There is an "old" smell in the rooms which could be likened to a damp smell but the rooms are clean,big and really cater to what you need. The water however, did not go beyond lukewarm in the shower. It's an affordable stay but no shops or amenities around the area. Traffic is horrendous so taking a taxi anywhere was a no-go due to time, the hotel is 20mins away from the airport but in peak traffic it takes over 2 hours to get to! However, the hotel is way more affordable than many closer to the airport and suited us for the time we spent there.

      Pleasant stay with easy reach to town”
      Good location, accesible to town by reliable Uber. Security seems to be enforced while entering Hotel by car, common practice in most hotels in town. Relaxing atmosphere at outdoor restaurant. Could do with more selection of vegetarian dishes. Shower door didn’t close flooding whole bathroom. Towels a bit too all. Overall we had very friendly and helpful serviced here for the holidays.

      Old Hotel with Very Bad Food”
      The room, as a whole, was kind of disappointing in that I was expecting something so much better for the money. Everything was just old and not well maintained. There wasn't any charm to the place. Tried both restaurants and received food that was inedible. Pizza over cooked, chicken wings were overcooked and miniscule. Made me think the chicken starved to death. Restaurant service was horrible. Getting a simple glass of wine took 30 minutes. Cup of coffee was the same. No ice was available for any drinks. Shower was old, moldy and horrible. Barely room for 1 person. Room cleaning was unacceptable with trash cans going unemptied, towels disappearing and returning hours later. This is clearly a hotel bent on making as much money as possible without actually doing anything good for the customer. Views at every point seemed industrial. Getting the television to turn on required finding a hidden switch on the wall behind the television. Very disappointed in this hotel room.

      Nothing to add to my title: From the moment I stepped in, it was a great place to stay if you are visiting Nairobi. It’s also close by the city center and you can walk when the weather is good. The staff members are always friendly and helpful. I will return to stay in here when I visit Nairobi again, hope it is sooner than later.

      Wifi was horrible from the room. Otherwise a decent hotel.”
      wifi was non-existent from the room. Opening the door would get you 1 bar out of 4 on connection strength. Had to go down to the lobby just to use the wifi. OF course the manager would reply this review that he's taken into account feedback. I'm sure nothing was done though. Only chose this because it's opposite a work office. Plus side is this hotel is located along a road filled with embassies hence you should feel safe.

      Nice mid-range hotel in convenient location”
      Manager was very chirpy and accommodating, support staff very helpful, and the decorations very classy
      Overall it was pleasant, though our booking through agoda was not recognized by the reception staff to a point that we have to wait to be checked in until we confirmed the booking. Reception lady was a bit rude, asking us if we really booked the right hotel, which was a bit condescending and annoying. However, everything else is up to par, though we could have used some good views. The nice atmosphere and welcoming staff and a good breakfast spread made up for what it lacks.
