Had a very short two day stay here but it was certainly the best of the five or so trips I've had to Nairobi. Very friendly and attentive staff, good food and atmosphere. From the gentlemen who summon the lift for you to Pius the friendly driver who shuttles you to and from the airport. I would stay there again....

A little tired in some places and the rooms could use a nip and tuck, but the property and the service is reliable and not lacking in quality. The security is excellent and the staff is friendly and helpful. There are a couple of restaurants on the property and the various buffets offer multiple options intended to cater to the...

I had Sunday lunch buffet at your terrace restaurant with 2 friends today, Sunday April 23rd 2017. The food was fine and the company was great but the service could have been better. We're human and sometimes things don't go as planned but it's a problem when a supervisor defends poor service by saying that "it happens everywhere during shift...

We travelled to Nairobi last March for a week. We spent 4 days in Nairobi and 4 days in Masai Mara. We wanted a comfortable hotel in the city as we knew we would have enough advantures during the Safari.

I like the location, the breakfast menu was very good and the gift shop has good items. I recommend room with a city view for people watching. Front desk clerk need to be more friendlier. Plenty of seats in the lobby, excellent when waiting for transfer and tours.

First thing we noticed is the tight security arrangements being in Nairobi! Rooms are excellent. We had a city view with birds on trees. Excellent food and service from various restaurants - Bhandini Indian, Pool (Intercontinental) restaurant, etc. We did not use other facilities like the swimming pool since we were staying there as part of package tour to Masai...
