The hotel and staff were excellent. Security was excellent. However, the surrounding neighborhood was not very nice.

8/10 Very good

The hotel is basic but it is clean, it has satellite tv, free in room WiFi. It is close enough to Nairobi city centre. It is a good hotel for the money.

2/10 Poor

Disappointing hotel overnight transit
No free wifi as advertised & shuttle ride round trip should have been $25US - there was no such thing I paid to & from $50US. I paid $73.00 & it was only 55000 Tz shillings - so will not recommend to anyone - it was also around an hour from airport. Unsatisfied customer.

4/10 Fair

Probably more of a 2* hotel
The hotel was rated higher, but I thought it was in the 2-star category. Dirty walls in the lobby and hallways, curtains and towels stained in the rooms etc... and small cockroaches in the rooms. The sheets were clean though, and for that I was appreciative. But the hotel needs to be better managed overall and be prepared for some surprises in terms of quality lapses

6/10 Good

Nairobi accommodation.
A hotel near the airport with some activities near it :- Museum excellent. food market good too. It is in a noisy neighborhood and taxi from and to airport is costly. Good view opportunity but only public transport station and street vendors meet the eye.

Old facility. Hot water didn't work. Power goes out. Dirty towels.
Verified Travelocity guest review

2/10 Poor

Dingy and dirty
I read the reviews for this hotel and thought it sounded like the perfect hotel for just one night. I was wrong. We got there and one person in our group had to change rooms 3 times before they found one with clean sheets. Our room had no pillows nor sheets when we got there, that we had to ask for. Shower was dirty so we didn't feel like showering in the morning, plus the night before I had the conditioner stolen from my room whilst we were having dinner. There is a tv but no remote and only one channel was working. Hotel is dirty and not modern at all.
