Noisy room close to kitchen
I had a terrible room close to the kitchen - the noises woke me up at 4 am. I was on a late flight and arrived late - I warned them I will arive late. The night manager was not helpful when I asked to be put into a better room - he said it was all that was available but I am not so sure. I am worried that it might be because I booked and got a discount through

Oasis in Nairobi
Excellent value for money with very friendly staff. Beautiful garden and very relaxing next to pool. Although my room did not have airconditioning it was still relative cool. The noise from the street was a bit disturbing (my room was closest to side street)
Willem, za1 night trip
Exceptional 10,0
Everything was great but the Business Centre was a disappointment.Maybe I went at the wrong time, 5p.m but I thought business people work in the evenings. The lap top I was given to use didn't connect to the website I wanted, it just kept saying the time and date is incorrect on this apparatus. Anyway, I was not charged because I didn't get anything done. There was only one lady on duty and she was initially on a long phone call regarding a reservation that needed altering and then she served another couple who came in after me. So I left.

Quiet and lovely retreat in Nairobi
This is not my first time staying here and I was not disappointed. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and the service is impeccable. The multiple dining options are also a benefit. It is an oasis in busy Nairobi.

Great peaceful stay in Nairobi
I was with a group and we all loved the facility. The breakfast buffet is amazing and the people are so friendly! Even the hotel manager would check on us regularly. You cannot hear traffic outside and with all of the garden and outdoors space it is such a peaceful environment.
