Stayed here for 3 nights a couple of weeks ago. I'd say its ok for a stopover from the airport but not much else. I've stayed further down the road at the Ole Sereni a couple of times and that is way better.
However, the rooms are ok, spacious, security is at the front of the hotel checking who goes in and out. They do have a large swimming pool which is handy after those hot dusty days and a gym.The food is average consisting of mainly buffet style in the morning and evening. For a couple of days the fare on offer is ok nothing else whilst the bar is a pretty souless affair.
The rest of the building is rather bizarre with a few shops underneath and an ice rink of all things and another restaurant. I didnt have a meal in that restaurant but did have a Tuskers whilst overlooking the madness of the mombassa road.
So i'd say if you don't want to go down town and the Ole Sereni is booked up or too expesnive, this is decent enough,
