"Downtown"-Environment, best described as mix of a cleaner version of Cairo's Suuk and Kowloon's "Chunking Mansion". Arrived by a group of three.
The noise made our group unhappy, so Jaffers Manager offered same price for another hotel "Pearl Palace" Hotel. Top customer focus.

Very loud and rough place. It was fine for one night but only with ear plugs. Bathroom is in the room (wall with curtain).
No wifi, no airport pick up as they advertise on booking.com. They also had no idea that we had the booking. Beds were uncomfortable, windows were impossible to close

I stayed for the evening until 1am as I had an early morning flight. At 15usd it was affordable and the place was clean. No seat on toilet though. A big plus is the restaurant on the floor below the reception next to the pub. Its excellent quality and great food.

The staff was nice and helpful, they led us even to the bus station. Unfortunately the location makes it very very noisy. The music from shops under the hotel has the loudness of the techno club. A bit dangerous in the night. If you sleep hard it shouldnt be a problem. The price is one of the best in Nairobi.

The room was clean but with an in-room toilet with curtain. Had a working TV with just 4 local English channels. No wi-fi. However one cannot expect anything more at this price. The noise of the buses wake you up at 4am which continue till late night. Night clubs with blaring music on 1st floor, so take a room above 3rd floor ( No elevators). Staff is very polite n helpful. Good security. Breakfast is limited - Bread n jam ( no butter, but you can have any quantity), one boiled Egg, One Sausage, tea or drinking chocolate ( no coffee). Its limited to that. I stayed 15-16 sept 2016.
