    The rooms are quite nice, but the location in the middle of town means that walking outside after dark is not the best idea, and your view from the window of your room is just Nairobi traffic. The food at the restaurants is good, but criminally over priced, and the place does seem a little stuffy and colonial. Overall, overpriced for what it is, but you can tell it used to be a spectacular destination back in its time period.
