    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.

    The property is well guarded and they do keep the gardens in good shape. BUT, 1. Two of us were food poisoned from the location. They do not rotate foods on the displays consistently. I was watching the food displays daily and they never changed or appeared to be not properly refrigerated for hours. This personally made me sick for 3 days bedridden, the other person for 2 days. We did report it to management and to the Hotels credit some of the displays were removed and replaced with fresh food after several exchanges with the management. I suspected the bacon as the culprit in our case but would recommend eating the fruit which can be inspected for freshness or mold. 2. No elevators, we were on the third floor, though the room was stated to be 107. This is an older building from the '30s though well kept. Prepare for a 3-floor hike upstairs. 3. If ordering any transit options pay the front desk as they are supposed to set the prices. We were quoted 20 dollars for a ride at the front desk that ballooned into 100 dollars from the driver. A tour went from 100 dollars to 150.00. Always prepay and get a receipt to avoid this. This scam seems to be perpetuated by upper management there. Be on guard for this. 4. Bring your bathrobe and sandals as they are not provided by the hotel.

    This was my first time in Kenya. Because of the security at this hotel I felt very safe. The breakfast was excellent. They offered a breakfast that had plenty of variety.
