Awesome Hotel!
Sankara is a luxury oasis in the busy city of Nairobi. The hotel is tranquil with excellent service from the doorman to the roof top pool servers. I highly recommend this hotel.

Sankara Hotel Great Place to Stay in Nairobi Kenya
Hotel was great. Bar and restaurant were great. Had a problem with the tour desk. Booked tour and they did not show up. So I went to a different hotel and booked the same tour, that went as scheduled.
