This is would have to be the nicest place I have stayed at during my three visits to Nairobi. The room had a small lounge area and a balcony as well as a large bathroom with a spa bath and a walk-in closet. The space was extremely comfortable considering it was just me.
There was new development of additional residences and suites being built during my stay which was a little loud and started early in the morning. Best to keep your side window curtains closed to prevent any nosey builders enjoying a look in.
The breakfast in the morning was fantastic and nothing beats some freshly cooked eggs and bacon to start your day right. I did dine with only another table being occupied so the service was fantastic and plenty of space to sit. Front office staff were also very helpful, genuine and happy. They did not charge me for the bottle of wine I opened that was very old and undrinkable.
The location of the property like nearly all hotels in Nairobi does require you to use a taxi or hotel car service to get anywhere. This would be my only problem.
Excellent place to stay in Nairobi with all the creature comforts of home plus more.

... were so yuck! There was too much poo to be true! The Hot Springs were about 10 minutes away from the Lake. They were much hotter than we expected and the rocks were so slippery we had to crawl on our knees to get to the other side. Once we had crossed, I heard a few people talking Dutch and Dad went over to them to have a chat. They were filming a documentary on how to make salt for a kids channel in the Netherlands. Not sure what kind of child is going to want ...
Today was pretty much just a travel day. We headed back to Nairobi to drop of the ones finishing the one week part of the tour and picking up some new members. We arrived back at the hotel in the early afternoon. My face had a sore on it that wasn't healing so I decided to try see a doctor. The hotel didn't have an in-house one so I had to head to Nairobi Hospital.
The Intrepid motto is "real life experiences". Well we had had a few of them already ...
... My cell phone wouldn’t go through, some roaming problem. So I walked back up to the 3rd floor and asked Michelle if she would please call Daniel. She did and he said he’d come right away. It took a few minutes for him to arrive but he did, and we started back to the hotel, stopping at a market quickly to buy some water. On the way I noticed again what extraordinary security measures are taken in Nairobi. Most ...
... to having a row to myself and sleeping comfortably on long drives. On top of that, there were several married/pretty much married couples on our truck and some older folk. For the first time in this trip, I found myself pushing back from them, and I'm embarrassed to say that it did take me around 3 days to snap out of this childishness. I realized that many others were getting along just great, yet I wasn't a part of that, and that was on ...
