    Very good

    De ligging. Prijs-kwaliteit was goed. Personeel was erg behulpzaam.

    Bad had géén waterstop in afloop noch was er een douche zodat een bad nemen erg moeilijk was.

    Very good

    Beoordeling van het hotel was helaas niet mogelijk. Bij aankomst in het hotel bleek alles overboekt te zijn wat via Booked.net was geboekt. Met meerdere gasten werden we vervolgens naar een ander hotel uit hun keten gebracht wat op 15km van Nairobi lag. Niet erg handig als je een hotel boekt vanwege de ligging en vervolgens moet wachten tot het busje van het hotel bereid is je weg te brengen. Was erg jammer. Desondanks toch wel goed verblijf gehad. Het hotel waar we gebracht werden heet La Mada. De bedden daar waren vreselijk. ERg hard, voelde alsof je op de grond sliep. Kamers wel groot, ontbijt redelijk goed.

    mooie inrichting, leuk terras aan de bar met uitzicht de stad

    Very good

    Vriendelijke service. Het is een oud koloniaal gebouw. De lift is boeiend, vooroorlogs, met ijzeren hekken en handel om je te verplaatsen naar beneden of boven. Het ontbijt is goed. Kamers schoon.

    Je moet goed opletten om het te vinden omdat het bord onder een luifel staat.
