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.

Does anyone ever strike you in a special way? I am struck by the various talents of Fr Gary Mueller, the head of the Kenyan region of the Vincentians. He has done an extraordinary thing to bring together many members of the Vincentian family for this conference I'm attending on the wise management of assets. He is a bit of a giant in my eyes. But he stands before this group of more than 120 people and humbly introduces himself as "hello, My name is ...
... will meet up with rest of the group later on and have dinner and then hit the hay. Randy has to go back to the airport at 1am to collect our bags. We have to open them to get them released to us. Maybe he'll come back and wake me up because the Safari Bar starts at midnight! Everyone is so gracious, polite, and friendly. This is a wonderful experience and well worth 18 hours on an ...
... the cliff side of the mountains. The roads are single lanes and off course everyone is in a hurry so they all try to overtake the other. It was a little scary at times and I saw it all sitting upfront with the driver. But it was worth it, just to see the Valley from high above. The land is so open and vast, can see for miles on end. Apparently this is the longest Valley in Africa, and of course like the traditions in Africa, there are shops perched on the edge ...
... too. Little Gavin is still under 1,600 and now has a very bad infection on the top of his hand from an IV. Literally half of the top of this little hand is a raw, gaping wound now.
A new baby was also in an incubator that was born yesterday. This baby was the worst one we've seen in our time here in Kenya. It must have weighed a pound or maybe two and I think was missing part of it's arm. It was horrible to see and now a vision I won't soon forget.
