The hotel and staff were excellent. Security was excellent. However, the surrounding neighborhood was not very nice.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

The hotel is basic but it is clean, it has satellite tv, free in room WiFi. It is close enough to Nairobi city centre. It is a good hotel for the money.

Disappointing hotel overnight transit

No free wifi as advertised & shuttle ride round trip should have been $25US - there was no such thing I paid to & from $50US. I paid $73.00 & it was only 55000 Tz shillings - so will not recommend to anyone - it was also around an hour from airport. Unsatisfied customer.

Probably more of a 2* hotel

The hotel was rated higher, but I thought it was in the 2-star category. Dirty walls in the lobby and hallways, curtains and towels stained in the rooms etc... and small cockroaches in the rooms. The sheets were clean though, and for that I was appreciative. But the hotel needs to be better managed overall and be prepared for some surprises in terms of quality lapses

Pros: Affordable price.

Cons: Cleanliness of walls, towels and drapes

Location: It was close to a street side market if that was something you'd like to explore.
