The Oakwood Hotel is a moderately priced, small city-centre hotel. The two-storey building is sandwiched between the Nairobi high-rise buildings and looks oddly out of place there. The rooms are very basic, but are very clean. Though one big drawback is that they don't have mosquito nets.
The small balcony next to the bar is a great vantage point to watch the Nairobi street life below, and is looking towards the Stanley Hotel and the Thorn Tree Cafe.
Unique Quality: I thought the hotel had a lot of charm with its wood panelling all along the walls, and the ancient metal lift which still works.
