I liked all the services, room cleaning, hall ways very clean kitchen service brought the food late without complaining it's late and receptionist service were awesome asking whether we need help. As all Radisson Blu is now my place to stay each time I will visit Kenya and recommending it to all the people I know who will visit Kenya. Nothing to complain about Radisson Blu during my stay. It was more than home and thanks to all I interacted with. My God Bless you all and hopefully this corona virus goes in order visitors to come back.
