My stay at the Sankara Nairobi was excellent. The accommodatand, the staff/service was quite nice, beyond expectations and an oasis even among many European and US hotels where I have stayed. Our stay at the property was a respit from our business activities throughout Nairobi. Thank you for the genuinely pleasurable experience.

2/10 Poor

My second time .. This hotel needs a lot of improvement from service to the property Hostile feeling when staff make you feel unwelcome.. chef/waiters don’t know their own menu 🙇‍♀️ I stayed in Marriot hotel and this has no Marriot standards neither 3/4/5 star standards It’s in great location in Westland though Solomon is always best host (he’s gem ) The rest need work and upgrade
