Nairobi, Kenya
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Nice stay, good quality hotel with great food at the restaurant on the roof, and a nice view over the Kigali skyline. The rooms themselves are fine, fairly old and simple and not really living up to the rest of the hotel. Nice art from a local gallery for sale all around the hotel.

This hotel was excellent from the word go. Excellent view begining from the reception lobby, courteous staff. Nice food . Lobbies to the room might need an update...

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. the hotel is situated in a central location with a local taxi and moto-taxi stand situated just outside the compound which makes life easy to travel around the city. I will stay here again to absorb the art, the history, and the friendliness.

I went there to look at an art exhibition which turned out to be art pieces displayed on the walls around the floor surrounding the lobby. The brochettes at the poolside bar are quite tasty. The balcony close to the lobby offered fantastic views at night. I wouldn't forget to mention the friendly and helpful staff in this hotel.

I went with an international group of work colleagues on a free afternoon. We each had tea and shared the chocolate mousse and tree tomato panna corta. The excellent tea came in pots big enough for two. Delightful! The outdoor patio by the pool was refreshing but out of the rain. The gardens are beautiful and the staff are very...
