Reviewed 22 December 2016

A decent business hotel. Charged us 45US$ per night.
Clear rooms with air conditioning. Breakfast had a selection of cereals and hot food, including beans and Spanish omelette.

Helpful staff. We had a problem with leaking toilet the first night, reported that at the reception and it was fixed the same day when we got back in the afternoon.

The downside is the location. The hotel is relatively far from the centre. You will need to take a matatu or a tuk tuk (100 KSh). Some tuk tuk drivers didn't know where the hotel was and we had to guide them.

Budget option, which could be a lot better with a few minor changes.

1. Staff training.
2. Wifi signal in rooms away from transmitter.
3. Mosquito nets need repairing.

We had an early morning bus to catch so had to base ourselves in the city centre.

The check-in was slow and the Internet in our room was terrible so we had to do our surfing in the corridor.

In hindsight, I think we'd stay on the beach and just get a really early taxi.

Only stayed here one night. I found it very clean, location central, restaurant available in house (just ok, but very eager to please)staff very helpful. Would stay again. I also stayed a few blocks away at the Pride Inn and if I return will stay here.

It's clean and safe. Staff is friendly. Near the city centre. Air condition and tv in the room. It's a nice place to stay but nothing special. Breakfast is not even worth going to. Go to blue room restaurant for great breakfast!

I booked the hotel after I read reviews.The hotel is nice and exactly the way the photos are. Excellent staff, very clean and value for your money. I stayed there with my DH and son for 8 days and we highly recommend to anyone else. However, kindly consider having different breakfast menu different days. It was same breakfast all those days.

Stayed: December 2015, travelled with family
