    Superb 9,0 From 74 reviews

    Exceptional 10,0
    Wonderful staff!
    The staff were wonderful. Extremely professional and going above and beyond, using their initiative to make my stay as stress free as possible. As much as all of the staff were extremely professional and worth their weight in gold, I must single out Jane, my driver from and back to the airport. I have rarely encountered someone who uses their own initiative to resolve problems, for example when I was stuck in a really long visa queue on arrival, she thought about checking if my number was on WhatsApp, and seeing i was online, sent me a message to tell me where she was etc. I was worried being in such a long queue that the driver might leave, thinking they had missed me, but because Jane used her initiative, we could communicate and manage each other’s expectation, removing all the stress, and on top of that she was warm, friendly and helpful (like the other staff) - thank you Jane!

    Great service and breakfast!
    Service was excellent. Warm towel and juice at check in sets the tone for the fantastic service throughout our one night stay prior to our Masai Mara Safari. Breakfast buffet had so many options and was delicious! Convenient to both airports.

    Very good 8,0
    Relatively good location for access to the main airport (JKIA), but also close to the Wilson Airport and the Southern Bypass (for fast trips to Karen or Langata). Good value at this price point in Nairobi – large rooms and excellent gym facilities in particular.

    Comfortable and Friendly
    It is close to the airport, clean, comfortable and friendly. The service is very good and they were very helpful when my ride didn’t show up as planned. I couldn’t ask for anything more for my first night in Kenya.

    Exceptional 10,0
    Nice clean hotel in Nairobi with helpful staff. Rooms were large with good decor. Note: mosquitoes can be a problem even in good hotels in Nairobi so always ask for the extra can of mosquito spray for the room, or the cleaners will spray for you. Menu in restaurants limited if you are staying for several nights, but food well prepared and tasty and staff helpful with allergies. Nairobi can be chequered as far as feeling safe, we found this hotel to be very safe with good security. We would stay there again.
