Very good 8.0
Good Hotel
Good Hotel with excellent customer service. There was some noisy renovation taking place on some hotel floors. even on a Sunday... other than that all else was as expected.

Very good 8.0
Great hotel.
Great hotel! Rooms are clean, spacious and well furnished. They’re also well proofed and insulated, virtually no outside or street noise can be heard. The staff go above and beyond in making your stay as comfortable as possible. I asked the front desk to hold my bags between check out and a late night flight and instead, they offered me a later than usual check out! Solomon is a great concierge and a great help in anything inside and outside the hotel. I decided to skip room service and dine at the rooftop restaurant like I’d done before on a previous (non-stay) visit. Big mistake! It was Latin night so the rooftop was popping. But service was ridiculously slow. Drinks came 25 minutes after ordering. Dinner took over an hour! The 3 wait staff (that I could see) did their best but were seriously overwhelmed by the crowd. I contemplated just up and walking away for room service instead. Breakfast the next morning was meh. Overall I’d stay here again.

Staff assistance with some issues we had was outstanding. Our flight didlnt leave until 11:30 on our departure day and because my wife was ill, they comped our room until 8:00pm that night. I couldn't believe it. Very nice service. Visiting in Nairobi is another story. Way too crowded with constant chaos and horrendous traffic.

Very good 8.0
Everyone from the front desk to the servers in the restaurants to the cleaning staff to the valet/transfer staff are very happy to help and always smiling. A couple of them blatantly asked for positive personal reviews on Trip Advisor, but that’s what the industry has become. The only negative, and it would have been a deal breaker had I known, is the pool is under construction. I specifically booked this hotel for the rooftop pool only to find it closed. The food at Artisan is so so, but there are many restaurants in the area and the concierge is happy to help with booking and transfers. Overall, a really nice place to stay in Nairobi.
