Upon checking in I tried to make a booking for a massage but they said they didn't have a spa. Yet on the information on-line including on Trip Advisor there is indeed a spa. This is false advertising. Very disappointing for a hotel of this calibre.

The place in clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff is all helpful, proactive and offer their services with a smile. Nairobi hotels are generally good but Sankara soars above them in class, comfort and value-for-money service. I will be back!
