We were waiting for the night bus to Mombassa and had a few hours to kill so came here for some food. There was a good local vibe and the food was very reasonably priced. The waiters were quite formal. We were there in the evening and there seemed to be lots of couples on dates! The bar was busy.

I came here twice for lunch. Once I ordered sirloin steak, it was supposed to come with gravy sauce but it didn't. Then I asked staff about the sauce and he served me something looking like sauce which turned out that it's just soup.. I was very disappointed. Otherwise, staff were friendly and nice to me. Just food is mot... More

This hotel has some history to it, I was told. From the outside it's not very easy to locate the entrance but once you find it, the lobby is quite okay. It was good that they had a currency exchange right there at the reception. There are other hotels in the city center that are not as expensive, so I... More

The hotel is quite old, and is expensive compared to the room and amenities you get. They dont even have a toothpaste or a shampoo ready. But the staff are nice.

Everything about The Ambassadeur Nairobi is creepy, except the entrance. Gives the feeling that there are ghosts haunting through the whole hotel, with televisions without movie channels, telephones that do not work, toilet seats that feels like knives, baths with Jewish fingernails inside and showers that do not work.
