Hotel closed down since April 2018!!
I have used Expedia numerous times without problems. However, this time we arrived to find the hotel had been closed since April of this year!! We booked this hotel in May!! And now, looking back at some reviews there is one that says the same thing so why are you still advertising it. Luckily, we had a very kind taxi driver who drove us to another hotel . I am very disappointed and hope you will refund the hotel cost, £59.86, together with the extra taxi cost,£7, as soon as possible. I look forward to your comments and hope you remove this hotel to stop other people having the same experience!

I didn't stay in, I found the hotel closed meaning no longer operational for more more than a month as I was told by the security guard at the gate. I had to find another hotel. I want a full refund.

We were a group of 3 adults traveling and the hotel was so kind to set up another bed in the suite area without us even asking. Staff was super nice and were to make sure we had everything we needed. Even had the stomach meds that I so needed.

Stay somewhere else!
The bed was too hard and we had to take the cushions off the couch to pad it in order to sleep comfortably. World's tiniest bathroom is here!! If you weigh more than 150 lbs, don't expect to get in/out of the shower stall easily. The sliding glass door only allows very skinny people in! When you turn on the water heater, you get scalding hot water. Your other choice is freezing cold water! We had to "help" each other shower as 1 would stand outside and turn the water heater on & off as required so that we would neither burn nor freeze! The TV was on the wall, right in front of the balcony door. If you weren't careful, you would go head first into the TV when leaving the balcony.

Very simple stay
If you plan to spend a lot of time at the hotel, then this is not for you. We stayed just one night then left in the morning. Before we left, we walked to the National Museum. My room had a view of the Nairobi River Park (also known as John Michuki Memorial Park). The traffic from the busy street below could be heard but I had earplugs. The pool is beautiful and clean, with a fabulous view. The restaurant was open for complementary breakfast but didn't seem to have food any other time of day. However, we ordered in the middle of the day and were able to get small snacks and drinks. The rooms are small but comfortable.

Easy walk to Natural History Museum
Lovely view of park around museum from the one side. Unfortunately that side also faces the road which makes it rather noisy. Staff were very pleasant and helpful.
