10/10 Exceptional

Excellent place to stay in Nairobi
Everything about this hotel was great - the suites are spacious with two rooms and a kitchen. Every appliance worked well, including the laundry, coffee maker, etc. They provide everything you need. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpfu. Great gym. Amazing location. We were able to walk to restaurants, a coffee place and shopping malls. Very few neighborhoods in Nairobi feel safe and clean enough to walk from place to place, so this is a very big plus!
