We stayed at this hotel the night before our flight home as it's not too far from the airport and central to Nairobi. As a family, we really enjoyed our stay. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The outdoor pool was a big hit with the kids. We had 2 connecting rooms as a family of 5 and both rooms...

The hotel is conveniently located close to the airport and the main industrial areas of Nairobi, so it's perfect if you're in town for business as I was last time I visited the town. Rooms are big, well furnished, while bathroom is also well equipped. Swimming pool area is too small and breakfast is average and could be improved.

Great hospitality, clean and nice rooms, very good food as well. The staff was 24/7 prompt for any inquiry. We had to leave early for a Safari, and they arranged an early breakfast for us. The concierge helped us in booking the trips and showed he really cared about our interests. We'll be back.

A day suite before our departure from Nairobi, not too far from the airport. I love that the proceeds go to the Red Cross Kenya. If you have a meeting in Nairobi, it's hard to think of a better place to meet than in the presidential suite. Large spaces, jacuzzi bath for 2, sauna, lounge area, meeting/dining area, bedroom and...

Serene fatastic hotel. Good for meetings, and strategic planning or get-away from the busy Nairobi central city. Clean room, with adequate in room work space. Freindly staffs, multiple meeting rooms for group work and of course above average resturant.

Whether on holiday or business trip this is a very posh hotel to stay while in Nairobi. It's only 30 minutes drive to the airport and very close to the City Centre.
