Visited rooftop bar as a couple. Nice for sundowner after which you can relocate to your place of choice. Not much ambience and floor seems to be aging. Service is OK. You pay for parking. Atmosphere is relaxed with fresh air at the roof top. Average prices for its class.

We had gone for some drinks the pool bar. Firstly, no one bothered to come and ask us if we would like a table or whether we were looking. We had to ask for a menu. Got a few rounds of drinks. Every other customer was given a plate of nuts, except for our table. We were clearly the only...

The Sankara is a superb hotel and the fact that it is in the middle of Nairobi makes it that little bit more special. Our room was incredibly well equipped. I spent a lot of time in the room completing work and the amenities on offer show that the interior designer knew what they were doing. Next to the desk,...

The Artisan on 1st floor offers a lovely business meeting place, suitable for those people who like to take their laptop to a café and get some work done. Service is very slow, especially for food and bitings, though drinks are served almost immediately. You might have to ask for the bill twice. Ambience is great through and through. I...

I went there yesterday for lunch and had a grilled rib eye. Probably one of the best I've ever had. Cooked to almost perfection, with an amazing smoked grilled flavor. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant if you're looking for grilled meat.
