Convenient location, but all!
Posted Jun 30, 2013
I've booked this hotel because it was walking distance from Kenya International Convention Centre and because its price was worth, being a lot cheaper than other close-by hotels like Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza, which were extremely expensive for what they offer back. The location is definitely a plus for Sentrim 680, it is few blocks from KICC, where I attended an event, but it is definitely the only good point of this hotel. Given the reviews in both Expedia and TripAdvisor, I came in not expecting much anyway. Apart of the existing reviews, I would like to mention that the TVs don't have the remote control, maybe they don't leave one in the room to avoid it to be robbed, but the fact is that if you want to change the channel, adjust the volume or turn it off, you will need to stand up and do pressing the buttons. Other disappointing fact is that when having dinner I was not informed that credit card payments are only accepted for bills over 3000 Shillings, so if your bill is less you will be asked to pay in cash. Tip: be prepared to have enough money if you decide to eat there. The food is not bad, so this is a good point (at least one!)
