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.

We had no contact with Penda or Aziza either. Hopefully tomorrow.
To finish off the day Hannah and ...

... Today was beautifully breezy and was fabulous for walking to and from. We had a little chance to sit outside too and that was amazing. We spent a little time in the Daughters chapel and appreciated that time very much. Fr. Tom Essellmen took us on a tour of the Vincentians DePaul Centre compound and I was particularly struck by a discussion we had in the Novitiate library. The picture here is a small section of the library which has been stocked ...
... am eventually back, but this time when I sit there I will realize I've outgrown him. I told him I will send a message if that ever happens. I think everyone wants to know the outcome of the likely/unlikely meeting if it ever did happen. The internet was patchy and we had a blackout for about 30 minutes as we sat there. I received so many notes of love, encouragement and support throughout my trip, and for some reason yesterday I received more than usual. I am so lucky to have ...
... valley, and guests could actually shoot game from the terrace. The marsh is now the location of the University of Nairobi, and is in the center of the city, so no more shooting, but the history is fun and the food good, much less expensive than in the haute cuisine restaurant inside. Originally built in 1904, it had its share of famous guests in the early 1900s including Neville Chamberlain, the Duke and Duchess of Connaught, and Winston Churchill. In ...
