Nice Personal touch, makes one feel welcome. Rooms are clean. Hallways are clean and so are the lifts and stairs. Dinner and breakfast location is good and easily accessible. Access from outside the hotel is well monitored and safety are one of the top priorities.

A clean, safe, modern hotel in a central part of Nairobi. Decent food , but more options would have been great. Also a dedicated coffee shop with quiet areas for small meetings would be a very useful addition. Leave early for the airport - traffic is unpredictable and can take an hour easily,

I can't get over the decor each time I visit the place. The poolside is great and the team warm and welcoming. Great bites with drinks. Pool more of decor than practical given that one swimming would shy off the view of revelers. No doubt I will be back.

Sankara is in a great location near a shopping mall with some restaurants and other nearby restaurants. The staff are pleasant and try to make your stay nice.
