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.

Months leading up to my adventure I read every blog and Trip Advisor forum post about the places I was going to visit. The information I gained from this allowed me to do things that I had not originally included in my trip. This was especially the case with the plans for my overnight stay in Nairbobi.

... sorted all of this out. We sat there for a very long time waiting for the money situation to be figured out, and we all ended up having to pay the extra cost for the regular fee, since we no longer qualified for the student rate. However, we were promised that we would be refunded this money when we returned to our camp, since the people there were the ones who arranged this. I was highly skeptical, and had only enough money left for ...
... or the hangover the next morning. It was great to watch Elliot fight to get out of his sleeping bag, to freak out at the tights he was wearing (which were our cooks tye dyed tights.) Justise was a hoot crawling around and stopping to nap in all sorts of places. Kendy won a stage! Whoot Whoot! Mike and I helped her as there was a head wind and a cross wind. I was "racing" but Kendy took first as she wanted to at least win one stage. ...
... I think he was a little sad to be without company for the day. I walked over to the reception desk and asked if I could arrange a shuttle to Nairobi for today. The man at the reception let me know that one was already arranged and a car was picking me up at 11am. Good thing I asked. I had no idea. There seems to be a huge lack of communication in Africa. I went back and told Hemad. Then after going upstairs, packing my bag, we just hung out in the restaurant for the next ...
... spent a bit of money for souvenirs. Next was a trip to the elephant orphanage. They had 25 elephants there and some of them were veryyyy feisty today! We got to pet some of them and watch them interact, play, fight, and get a little frisky. It was a sight to be seen! We finished our day of fun at an Ethiopian restaurant. Emily and I were not big fans! The bread is a very weird texture that reminded me of a sponge. It was definitely ...
