The room didn't have lighting and did not have water. Why host a guest when you know you don't have lights or water??? The towel provided was severely torn. The staff were friendly. Aside from the staff, the hotel did not meet general standards.

Nice place. Poor location”

Nice staffs

The room itself is basic but clean and safe. staffs are helpful. The only thing about this hotel is its location. It is in the middle of nowhere!!! The nearest shopping area is 15-20 mins drive at the mercy of the traffic! From the hotel to where I work, ie. the UNEP, it takes 35-45 mins by car provided the traffic is normal, and I need to spend 40 USD on the road everyday, which is not cheap and really time consuming. So if you are travelling for work at the UN area, this is not the most optimal place to stay. Breakfast is very basic, there are no other places to eat nearby at night, so the buffet at the hotel is the only choice. 17 USD/per person. The food is ok but not good value for money. If you don't care about location, then it's ok to stay here, otherwise, don't.

The staff, comfy bed, near(ish) to the airport

I had a really comfortable stay, and found the staff delightful. My 20-minute drive to the airport made it a convenient location for an end-of-trip stay, though I understand that it's more likely to be like this at the weekend and that it can take three times longer during the rush hour.

Superb value for money, great staff, nice rooms”

Free wifi, helpful staff, big rooms

While the location is very out of the way of the action, our stay at Upperhill was fabulous. We experienced excellent service from the start, with the check in process very quick. After spending 7 weeks in Africa experiencing dodgy internet, we were relived to find the wifi free and fast. Beers in the bar were cheap, and we got some free crisps with the beer. We had just stayed at the Hilton the previous night for twice the price, and the Upperhill was far superior in its service, value for money and quality of the room, which was modern. We had a very early flight to catch in the morning, and the staff had organised a cab, and came up to knock on the door as a wake up call, without being asked. All in all, highly recommend if you're after somewhere that's inexpensive and a little quieter than central Nairobi.

設備が新しい、空港まで近い、スタッフの対応

ホテル内にレストランがフランス料理店しかなく、近所にもレストランらしきものは見当たらなかった。ただ、今回の出張では平日ということもあり滞在客が少なかったため、レストランでいろんな特別メニューを注文できた。ただ料金は近隣と比較すると少々高めである。施設は新しく、清潔感があった。仕事などで宿泊するには適していると思う。
