I went there yesterday for lunch and had a grilled rib eye. Probably one of the best I've ever had. Cooked to almost perfection, with an amazing smoked grilled flavor. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant if you're looking for grilled meat.

Hotel has fantastic decor and has highly professional staff. The ideal "be seen" venue that is a costly retreat in the middle of the city madness. The pool area is quite a site, overlooking most of the city. Place is worth a visit.

My first time here. Went for tea and snacks at the lounge. The level of care and attention from the staff is breathtaking. Have not experienced that anywhere else. The ambience is superb. The tea and snacks were very well done. Very fresh and tantalizing. I really felt pampered and will definitely visit again!!

Beautiful and centrally located modern hotel in Nairobi. Full of splendor in decor and layout, well secured and with friendly and attentive staff.
