Nice hotel
This is a nice hotel with very spacious rooms. Conveniently located for the business district and large mall and restaurants. Most of the staff are excellent, especially Naomi and Grace on reception and the the lovely Faustina who looks after the cafe next to reception, However the staff on the 2nd floor at the bar and restaurant really need guidance and training. i had several issues during my stay.

10/10 Exceptional

Top notch hotel in Nairobi
Loved everything about this hotel. We went to dinner at the View (360 rotating restaurant on the 24th floor). Breakfast on the 2nd floor was phenomenal and they had gluten free and dairy free options everywhere. We used the car service provided by the hotel for in city excursion as well as the airport transfer. It felt like a black car service (Mercedes car with tinted windows). The driver was very respectful. We spent our last day at the spa, which was phenomenal. We did the signature treatment (sugar scrub, use of steam room and sauna, then ended with a massage. I feel so refreshed and from the steam room it opened my sinuses and relieved congestion! The entire staff at the hotel are a delight to be around and will definitely stay again when in Nairobi.

Excellent stay
From start to finish it was an excellent stay. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Deborah on reception. Nothing was too much trouble and always had a lovely smile on her face. The room was very big and comfortable and excellent facilities. Walkable to the local business district and large mall. I'll be back. Only slight gripe is that the chef needs to learn how to cook eggs. The scrambled eggs were under cooked and very watery and the sunny side up eggs were cooked too fast so the bottom was burnt and the top barely cooked.

2/10 Poor

Terrible hotel
Just horrible experience. The hot tub was broken and it leaked. This made the floor all wet and soaked but they checked once and confirmed it was broken then did nothing for it. They promised to figure out quart to do and call me back but they never did. No hospitality. No sincerity. I had to spend a night with soaking wet bathroom. I actually cleaned it by myself feeling bad about leaving it wet. Just terrible service. No compensation either. I just had to accept all of their fault and malfunction.
