Our first night's welcome

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 18, 2006

This was our first welcoming hotel in Nairobi. After a long 26 hour flight via London, we had finally arrived to Kenya.

We were greeted with smiles, the typical welcome cool drink of fruit juices and moist towel and lovingly cared for as we checked into the hotel.
Although everything was still a blurr to us - mainly due to the excitement of actually finally being here, I do remember one thing...

The genuine smile and wonderful way in which the management and reception met us. They seemed genuinely happy to see us arrive.

Unique Quality: The rooms were wonderfully comfortable. Crisp white linen, wonderful soft pillows and firm mattresses.
The bathrooms were our first introduction of what appears to be standard with all the 4 and 5 star hotels in Kenya - a bidet!

After we had checked in, we had been adviced by the consierge to make our way down to the lobby for live music which would be begining in a short while. Deciding we needed to use up our pent up adrenaline, we took him up on it.
WHAT A GREAT TIME!
Imagine our surprise (being Cubans from Miami) when the music began and it consisted of a group of local Nairobi musicians playing and singing old time Cuban classic dance music!
Although sung 'Phoenetacailly", they were in unison, and dead on.
We danced Salsa, Merengue and had a wonderful time.

There are a wide choice of restaurants surrounding the bar area, including a raised casual dining/drinking area where, if you prefer, you can order from the bar and have simple sandwiches, burgers or light meals along with your drink. We opted for the latter.

Finally, breakfast is served in the rear restaurant facing the pool and gardens. HUGE array of African food as well as American and English. Included in the price of your room.

Directions: CITY HALL WAY

Nicer than I am used to!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Well it’s always nicer when someone else is footing the bill for the hotel! That is how I got to stay here. Otherwise, God knows where I’d have stayed. Seeing as how it is an internationally recognized chain of hotels, it has a better reputation than most. For over the past year they have been doing major renovations on the rooms which have transformed the obviously weary rooms into more modern and clean ones. My favorite part of my room – a heated mirror! Don’t you just hate when you take a shower and your mirror is all fogged up?? Of course that isn’t the only good aspect.

Unique Quality: multiple restaurants, casino, bureau de change, meeting rooms, pool, 1 schilling breakfast

good location, services and facilities

This 5 stars hotel is a bit old, and is going through partial renovations, so make sure that if you want to stay in the room during week days / working hours, to have a room located far from the renovations area.
the rest is good, 3 restaurants, busy lobby, night club, Casino, shops, bank etc.
It hosts business people, tourisrs and many Airline crews staying which makes the atmosphere even more mixed and interesting.

Directions: near the city center
