First time in Kenya. Hotel was recommended by business partner. Pricey, bur large nice room, BEST COFFEE EVER in the room (yeah we are in Kenya stupid!) with porcelain french coffee press, many restaurants and huge gym, rare in Africa. I have not tried the steak house, but it looks really good. Service is outstanding.

I stayed a week in Sankara and must say that the staff at this hotel genuinely do their very best to make you welcome and get the best out of being "out and away" You can book tours and excursions in the lobby and the prices are not exaggerated but fair. The hotel is good standard but the people there...

At least two shopping centres within 5min walk, a couple of restaurants and bars if not at walking distance at worst a 5 min taxi drive. I choose the place because of their...

It was everything good I had read about it. I spent some time at the spa - having a massage and facial. Everything was excellent and I absolutely loved my...

Good location close to the popular Westgate mall. Room and amenities are world class. Most inviting is the bathroom with modern accessories. The beds are comfortable and the audio visual in the rooms are great.

Excellent facilities, exceptional hospitality and truly amazing experience. The location is convenient as it is close to happening places Westgate, Sarit Centre, Diamond Plaza. Unfortunately, I couldn't use Spa facility as it was fully booked in advance.
