Quick stopover

Pros: Everything
Location: Shocking traffic in Nairobi, pick travel times carefully
This was a one night stay in Nairobi, on our way back to Australia after having safaried in the Serengeti. Wonderful old hotel steeped in history and beautifully maintained, the hotel staff extremely polite and attentive, a very comfortable room with lovely bed, and super shower, and a delicious multi cultural breakfast, with a transfer to the airport in one of the Sarova's luxury vehicles with driver giving us a wonderful history lesson!
