        • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
        • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

        Location is good if you want top stay in City Center, Rooms are OK and Staff is nice and polite Restaurant food is not good and during Lunch it was the worst Chicken Biryani I had in my life and during Dinner I tried Chicken Curry and it was same too ;-( I preferred to eat out for next few days of stay Breakfast was well below normal BW Standards The room service charges for beer were exaggerated far above mentioned in menu, and many other charges are levied for guests etc, Seems they have a oversmart accounts head, Will not stay there again

        • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

        I stayed one night and I booked for three nights due to the staff being discourteous to my visitors. They felt they could speak to them in any manner. I had meetings scheduled with the International police association but due to lack of privacy to discuss sensitive matters I requested that I requested that the guest be allowed to come to my room which was refused the desk people were rude to my guest. I requested that the manager and he was as rude as the desk staff were. I then advised the manager that I will be checking out of the hotel immediately. Which I proceeded to the room and packed everything and booked another hotel. I enquired about the additional two days I paid for and was advised I would not get a refund that I would lose the money accoording to expedia policy. This hotel used to be called the Meridian and I stayed there once also and had a terrbile stay but thinking it is now under new mamangemnet and being in close proximatey to variousd government offices I selected this hotel but again was greatly disappointed. They act like one is there as a thief. During my rush to leave the hotel I forgot some personal items and returned the next day and was advised i did not leave anything behind. Even though under Kenya law they have to retain items for 30 days in lost and found.
