I have stayed in Nairobi several times, but this was my first at the Holiday Inn. I was with a group of eleven on a missions trip - heading over to the western province after a couple days rest in Nairobi. We loved the Holiday Inn! There was no A./C, but we were there in Kenya's winter time, so it was no problem. In summer, it might have been a different story. The breakfast buffet was included, and was fabulous - they had someone cooking omelets and someone else making fresh crepes and pancakes and all kinds of baked goods. We had lots of extra luggage and they happily stored it for us in a secure location until we were ready to head west. The Spur restaurant is very good - everyone's food was excellent. The courtyard area is beautiful - it reminds me a lot of the Norfolk. The only drawback for me was that I had a room by myself, and it was at the very end of a dark corridor outside behind the courtyard. It was a little intimidating to walk back there alone at night, but I never encountered any problems. The porters and front desk people were very helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, if I could get a good deal.
