I didn't like the rooms, they didn't look clean enough. The red carpet looks like it isn't cleaned out often. The towels are a questionable colour, I expected bleached white. It's ok if all you need is a budget place to crash.

The hotel does not meet the basic standards, with a bathroom drain that did not work, torn bed sheets and dirty furniture. The food is ok, and the waiters service is also good. It seems that it was a place that used to do well in the past but is now rundown.

Unexpectedly very clean. The curry chicken was good. Fried tilapia was not fresh though. Decent bathrooms and a good stop on the way back to nairobi from lake bogoria. The service was fast and appreciated as we were in a rush to get to nairobi.

Our safari company dropped us off at this dump and I am glad it was only 1 night. I suppose it must be a really cheap place. The hotel itself is old and shabby, in a bad area (we were warned not to leave the premises) and has some amazing features worth mentioning: - the receptionist sits behind thick bars...

I stayed here with a mission group. I rated this hotel not based on American standards...after all this is not the EU or US. That being said this hotel was fine. Rooms were clean although I would like to have screens on the windows and most mosquito nets have holes in them. The best thing was the food...all meals were...
