Great home base in Nairobi

The staff at the Sankara was superb - from the registration desk to guest services to the wait staff, everyone was so responsive to my requests/needs. Restaurants and two shopping centers were in easy walking distance. Nice place to rest before or after leaving Nairobi for safari.
