Very fun place to stay, with very comfortable apartment and excellent service. The gym is worth the visit for its own sake.

Great place to stay in Nairobi
Great location and nice staff. Loved having coffee shop, restaurant, room service and salon on site. Apartment could use some more amenities - more glasses in the rooms, light bulbs, extra towels/blankets/pillows, more pots and pans, the basics like salt and pepper, etc I will come back though as it was very comfortable for our group.

The Zanzibar charm of this property was really cool. The convenience of having a bar and tavern within the stay was great, and the staff were very nice and helpful. We would certainly recommend this stay in Nairobi!

I enjoy the ambiance and the kitchenette in the room. My one critique would be that the bedding is not premium, as advertised. There is a bit to be desired on the bed aspect of the stay, but I will continue to return because the location is great and the ambiance is unique.

8/10 Very good

A unique architectural hotel, not one of those chain cookie cutters. The ambiance is very relaxing. The room we had was a good sized studio, with a kitchen. I don’t know how often people use the kitchen, but I being a celiac like to have that option. We needed a few things and Preet, who manages the place made sure we received them. Was not too impressed with the coffee shop. The bar is fine but food is so so. This will be my hotel to stay in when I am in Nairobi

The hotel is gorgeous and so are the rooms. Unfortunately the sheets were extremely old and smelled. There was no warm water for showers and the kitchen sink stunk. We had to turn on the stove tops for heat because the room was freezing.
