This hotel is BEAUTIFUL! The decor, architecture, and accommodations are amazing - I found myself taking many photos throughout our short stay. We we're only staying for one night and received a free room upgrade. The receptionist took us all the way up to our room and we got turndown service. We visited the VIP lounge and got free drinks and hors d'oeuvres upon arrival. We also dined at the Champagne Bar and the food was delicious. The view was amazing as well. We needed to get to another hotel in the morning to meet family, and it was very easy to book a taxi from the front desk. We highly recommend the Sankara!

This is a very good hotel to stay in Nairobi. Loved the staff - Solomon in the concierge was excellent.

Reservation was messed up and guest relations amd front desk representatives were not helpful in resolving issue. Very poor customer service.

Dear Gallivanter, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and more so taking time to give us your feedback. In regards to the price, we do have various options available though some do come with restrictions like non refundable or some have to have a minimum length of stay and for this reason we do give a significant discount. Our rates are also not static and depending on the season they may be high or low. This helps us cater to various budgets. We have noted that Solomon stood out for you and have shared your feedback with the Sankara team. We do hope to host you again in the near future.
