Terrible Customer ServicePosted Dec 12, 2014
Cons: They should fix their location on Google Maps, and answer the phone.
I booked this hotel because it's location on Google Maps shows that it is close to the United Nations Office in Nairobi. When I gave the cab driver the address we drove around and around, and I tried calling the hotel several times and they never picked up. I ended up staying at another hotel and went online and found out that there are two Limuru Roads in Nairobi and that several people had also had the same problem I did. I called Expedia and they tried calling the hotel as well and were unsuccessful. A hotel with no one picking up the phone?! Not even an answering machine!!! I canceled the rest of my reservation through Expedia and they said it was non-refundable but they would advocate with the hotel to get my money back. Expedia got back to me a week later and told me the hotel would not give me a refund, despite the fact that I canceled. Greedy and unfair, and really terrible customer service. To those looking into this hotel: do not expect them to answer the phone, and it is NOT located near the UN or the US Embassy in Nairobi.

ナイロビ郊外にある豪華なホテル。Posted Oct 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
2014年10月にジュニアスイートに宿泊しました。Hotels.comやGoogle mapに表示される場所は間違っていて、ナイロビよりはリムルタウンの近くにあります。座標は-1.168626, 36.700168です。深夜の到着のため空港からホテルまでの道が不安でしたが、特に問題もなくたどり着くことが出来ました。事前に車の手配をしておくことをおすすめします。 ナイロビから離れている反面、ナイバシャ湖には近いため、日帰りでCrater Lake Game Sanctuaryとヘルズゲート国立公園にゆっくりと行ってくることが出来ました。他の国立公園へ行く際のストップオーバー用の宿としてはうってつけだと思います。 ホテル自体は本当に写真の通りで実に豪華な作りで驚きました。滞在が短いのが惜しくなりました。庭もかなり広いようですが、残念ながらそこまで見ることはできませんでした。 部屋は十分すぎるほど広く、バスルームも広く、ドレッシングルームまであります。また、部屋の前にはとても広いパブリックスペースがありソファーもおいてありました。とにかく贅沢な作りです。 建物や調度とは違い、レストランの食事はとても庶民的で値段も手頃です。数千円を覚悟していましたが、確か千数百円位でお腹いっぱいになりました。 スタッフの応対は人によってばらつきがありますが、宿代を考えれば仕方がないと思います。 Sun Africa hotels はこのホテルの他にマサイ・マラやナイバシャにも宿を持っているので安心感があります。 Wi-Fiは場所によってかなり速度が異なります。レストランでは高速でしたが、他はかなり不安定で遅く感じました。私達の部屋では入りませんでした。この点だけが唯一残念でした。 作りが歴史的な割には、部屋の鍵は非接触のカードキーでドアが完全に閉まらないと警告音が出る今まで見たことがないタイプのものでした。 私達が到着した時は、敷地への高い門はしっかりと閉ざされていて安心感がありました。 また、ナイロビに行くことがあれば検討したいホテルです。

THE HOTEL THAT MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE A KINGPosted Oct 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
This 14 or 16 rooms mansion is not really an Hotel. It is a Palace!!! I was not sure if I chose the right place because it is a little far from downtown Nairobi but once I check in I did not feel like leaving the place. The décor is superb, the room extremely large, the Restaurant elegant and excellent cuisine and the staff going out of their way to make my stay pleasant. The Hotel have few semi-private living rooms and I stay in one of them for few hours doing some computer work. Every 20 minutes one of the servers was checking if I needed more coffee or anything else. They took care of every detail. I will definitely recommended to my friends and I will rate it as a 5 Diamond. It is the perfect place to rest after a safari on your way home.

Outstanding Hotel with great valuePosted Sep 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is outstanding and one of the best I have ever stayed in. I cannot believe that it is as inexpensive as it is. The Staff and Management are to be congratulated. Outstanding facilities and the food in the restaurant was very very good and excellent value. The only problem for booking is that the map location on Hotels.vcom is incorrect. The hotel is further from the centre of Nairobi than indicated and is a 15 minute taxi ride further into the countryside. That said a taxi is only 8 USD each way from the indicated location.
