    Good Value for Money Right In the Middle Of Nairob
    This hotel is good value for money in a good and accessible area of Nairobi. The food could be better - Breakfast is plain and even the ala carte menu wasn't fantastic. The service is just ok but yet again on this stay, their hot water system needs a real overhaul - getting a hot shower is a tall order particularly at 4am.

    Good 6,0
    The property is in a safe neighborhood, nothing around in terms of shops or other attractions. Room size is okay, One thing that I must mention is that the towels are really old and literally falling apart.

    Exceptional 10,0
    Very friendly and helpful staff. Passed on my request to extend my check-out to cleaning crew and 2nd shift staff so that everyone was informed.
