    Best hotel in a long time!

    Amazing service! If you think of something, you have it before you've even spit the words out! The rooms are "safari-themed," the food is delicious, and the staff is so amazing that I can't say enough good things about them. They are friendly, accommodating, and willing to go the extra mile. Also, in a time of security concerns, they made us feel very safe. Highly recommend. Gerald at the concierge desk hooked us up with a driver who became our friend and tour guide. I can't say enough good things.

    A bit disappointed

    The hotel is closer to the business district than many of the tourist attractions. Check in was fine and we received a room upgrade. We stayed one night prior to our safari and two nights at the end. The standard room at the end definitely felt smaller with lesser facilities (an old cathode ray tube TV rather than a flat screen). In general the hotel was fine and the service friendly and helpful, but one poor experience in the outdoor restaurant was disappointing. We ordered ou meeals and then waited a looooong time for them to turn up. When my wife's meal turned up it was stone cold. We complained and they took it away. Meanwhile my meal was served and it too was cold. By this time we were both tired and frustrated and we decided not to bother with the meals. They were in the process of reheating my wife's food but really it wasn't the sort of dish that was going to take well to being reheated. We declined the offer. The management the following day were very and we felt genuinely apologetic. It was just a shame and something of a let down. I have stayed in many Intercontinental Group hotels and never experienced anything like this.

    Excellent hotel for the traveler or business person

    This is a fine brand all over the world, and the hotel in Nairobi doesn't disappoint. We used it for our gathering point at the outset of our safari. They were most accommodating of my request for a private meeting space for our introductions. Minor complaints from my guests about the quality of the buffet, but all things considered it was a great way to begin our tour.

    Dame Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage:As Robert was driving us out to the orphanage, we saw some Colubus monkeys on the side of the road. THEN a baboon crossed the road RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR CAR to join his buddies on the other side! The Elephant Orphanage was really wonderful. They brought out 20 elephants ranging from 5 months to 3 years. They are …

    Maasai Market:

    We began our first day in Nairobi checking in with the concierge desk where Gerald set us up with a driver for the day (Robert). He recommended that Robert escort us to the Maasai Market which is an outdoor venue where members of the Maasai tribe sell their wares. Apparently mercenaries have taken advantage of the set …

    Looooong flight to get here . And our bags didn't make the connection in Istanbul. That connection was supposed to be a 2 hour wait but we went from the arrival gate to the departure gate and boarded. I thought it was a 5 hour flight to Nairobi but it was 6. Plus we we in the seats in front of the exit row so they didn't recline. The positive side …

    disappointed, but we had to move on to the next patient, who turned out to be a
    little complicated. She was 19 years old, 24 weeks into her pregnancy, and had preeclampsia. As she lay on the bed waiting to be checked, I noticed her condition had worsened. She had severe edema in her feet, and her body was completely swollen due to preeclampsia,both her and her baby were at high risks. ...

    I have help!

    Back to work, and it's a call day! I get to the wards and soon Evelyn, the doc in charge of internal medicine, shows up with a pretty blond-haired very Caucasian girl in tow. Another doctor! I get even more excited as I make out the words "Infectious Disease" on her starched white lab coat. I welcome her and some of her first words to me are, “Don’t get too excited, I’m just a fellow.” And ...
