What an experience! Sankara is indeed an exquisite property replete with a charming team of hospitality professionals. I had the pleasure of cocktails and light fare at the Sankara roof top bar. The bar overlooks the city of Nairobi - Africa's gem in the East. The rooms are beyond phenomenal. The interior design echoes five centuries-worth of East African artistry.... More

The rest of the stay was equally fantastic, with the business center providing efficient assistance for things such as photocopying and scanning of documents. We had... More

I stayed here for work in early November. A lovely hotel, very well appointed. The rooms are a little tired but still very comfortable. The staff are all very helpful. You are gifted a cute soap stone animal each morning with an information card. Nice touch. The breakfast set up is good, very diverse although coffee orders take a few... More

When I checked in, I was informed I was on a bed and breakfast rate. I therefore had breakfast each day and at the end was informed I was only on a room rate. The hotel staff denied saying it however cancelled the charge as a gesture. As I know the hotel are lying about this, I asked them to... More

It is great up market hotel wouthout being over the top however meets the expectation of an up market hotel. The hotel in in the heart of Nairobe. Service was excellent. The in room office space with the multi international plug configurations is a winner. The buffet meals at the hotel is great.

Second time staying here. Still very nice hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Amenities are superb. Free WiFi (limited to two devices). Very good showers and comfortable beds. Only lost a star because I thought the breakfast buffet had gone down hill since last visit. Still love the turn-down service with soapstone animal each night. Check out the curios market across...
