8/10 Very good

Nice hotel
Nice hotel and centrally located. Staff very helpful. I had a room facing the street and as the windows are not very insulated, it was a bit noisy at times. The hot water in the shower was not always available, but OK in the morning. Will stay there again

Nice hotel in Nakuru but select the right room!
The only hiccup during my stay was related to Merica has two classes of rooms- modern ones like the pictures, and older standard rooms that need some TLC. If you are looking for the former, make sure to book the higher class of room. If you don’t mind the latter, they are clean and large.
