We were staying for one night at this hotel on our way back to Kuwait after excellent Masai Mara experience. To get to the hotel from domestic Airport and back to International Airport is real hell. Traffic in Nairobi really puts you off. Hopefully in next 2-3 yrs things should change as lot of Chinese constructions going on along the roadside. More then the receptionist you will find bell boys very helpful. Hotel has two pools, climate is cool so room didn't have any A/C. Hotel is well maintained and clean.
We had been for buffet breakfast nice big choice, but found that milk was curdled, probably some orange juice drops must have dropped before serving. Saloon is way costly a rip off just 10 mins from hotel is Westgate shopping mall buy what ever stuff you want from there. Try out the restaurant which serves grilled stuff..nice stuff...feasted on Ribs and steaks. You will enjoy.
