    Exceptional”

    Hotel staff was nice. My only concern about is the door, which does not look safe enough....the door is thin, and the lock is a very simple one. I did not feel safe sleeping with this type of door.

    Not recommended”

    Attending a UN meeting in Nairobi I choose Gigiri Express Hotel for its excellent location, only about 300 metres from the entrance to the UN premises. Alas, that is the only advantage of this hotel where I spent 5 days in March 2019. My room was located on the third floor and hadm in my view the following serious shortcomings: 1 No functional shower: the room was fitted with a weird system combining a pump and an electrical heater. The hotel appears to rely on its own large water tanks than on the urban water supply system and on the 3rd floor the water pressure is very low. Despite my polite remarks to the reception the system never worked and I could not take a shower during my 5 days stay, 2 Mosquitoes: Alas, Nairobi is home to the potentially deadly form of malaria but there are no anti mosquito screens on the windows nor electrical systems to release mosquito killing agents. I enjoyed quite a few bites. Minor shortcomings: 1 No elevator 2 Very modest breakfast selection

    Perfect place for US embassy”

    I have been to Nairobi many times for the embassy but I wish I would have found this place before. So close to the US embassy and so close to village market. We walked there a couple times in our stay and only took us 15 minutes. The staff was incredibly friendly and so helpful. We ran into a problem right away with our money and they helped so quickly. Thank you! And I will definitely recommend this place to anyone.
