Recommended hotel for Nairobi (Girgiri area)
Great family run lodge in a pretty part of Nairobi. Walking distance to the UN complex, restaurants, shopping, etc. They went out of their way to make sure everything was spot on, even preparing breakfast for us at 5 am on our last day, to make sure we had eaten before the taxi picked us up for the airport at 5:30. Breakfast was really good, and their restaurant will prepare dinner on request at great prices.

Good deal for a UN visit in Nairobi
Very well located hotel for a mission at UN HQ. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. Suggestion 1: A supervisor should walk around late afternoon and check if all windows are closed. That will prevent from a mosquitoes invasion. Suggestion 2: Post instructions on how to get warm water.
