2/10 Terrible

Annette, NAIROBI

We reached out via Expedia days to check-in to request for a refund or amendment, the Hotel advised that they would reach out on status, they never did despite the reasons given for the request. That was rather distasteful and the lack of communication was most regrettable.

Worst stay ever!
Worst stay I’ve ever experienced. I booked and paid the hotel through however when I got there, they made me pay the rate I already paid a second time, charging me double because I had a guest. This was so unheard of, and I felt completely unsafe in a country I didn’t know at all. This is at very best a 2 star hotel, towels had a bad smell, the room door couldn’t be locked, and there’s no A/C or heater in the room.

One of NBO's Best Kept Secrets Obviously
This is one of Nairobi's best kept secrets. Great, serene ambience you could as well be on a safari with all the wildlife around you. Great friendly staff and one of the best food I have tasted in an NBO hotel. I will stay here again and again.
