    Ideal for the airport. Excellent taxi service. Very clean with towels and toiletries supplied. Mosquito net over the bed appreciated. Friendly helpful staff.

    The bed was very hard. Noisy location which could have been improved with double glazing.

    Hotel was clean and cheap - it suited me to use it(twice)when I was in between flights at the airport in Nairobi

    It was not as close to the airport as I had thought. The main problem was with the taxi ordered by the hotel. The service was fine and the driver (for 4 trips) was good. However the information from the hotel was that each trip would be $25 (roughly 2000 Kenyan shillings. However the driver said that his contract with the hotel was for 3000 shillings per trip. I felt ripped off. Second point was location - it did not matter to me because all I did was sleep at the hotel but it was in quite a rough area and I would not have ventured out in the dark.

    Noisy environment. No hot water.Mosquitoes. The staff lied that they would get me a reciept to my room. They didn't take credit cards, I had to use my spare cash. No elevators and I stayed on the 4 th floor. the hotel is located in a busy highway and the surrounding view is dirty!

    Racheal,George,Michael, all the restaurant staff,and the cleaners very warm and friendly ,nothing asked was a problem if they could help. There is no fan in the room,toilet leaked,cold shower,but no problem ,didnt need it much and what do you expect from a third world country for 3600ksh. Internet is a mystery,but just buy a dongle from in nairobi town 1500 kshillings which comes with a safaricom phone card,which I used in my mobile aswell,and top up scratchcards can be purchased next door to the hotel this solved the internet and mobile contact. You can catch a Double'M' bus across the road into town for 50ksh eachway 10-30mins depending on time of day .I would not recommend walking around on your own at night in the sideroads off the motorway,but I did go in the day and one of the buses ventured down there too, which was a cultural shock, its like anywhere good and bad parts,just keep you wits about you. Had a hair cut in the piri hair shop across road from hotel 100 ksh by Thomas very friendly .all in all very good experience will come again ,

    The staff was ok.

    In all the years of traveling the world in both developed and developing countries, Oryx Hotel is definitely the worst hotel I have ever heard to spend a night in. And it was a night from hell. Here is why: 1. It is located next to a noisy highway. Kenyan drivers rank as the worst in the world, and we were driven mad by loud hooting throughout the night. There is no way anybody could fall asleep with the clatter and din from the street. 2. In all my life, I have never been in a hotel room with so many mosquitoes. They attack with a vengeance as soon as you enter. 3. The hotel promises a non-existent wireless network. 4. There is no elevator. If you have luggage, you have to carry it to whichever floor your room is located through the narrow stairway.

    Avoid this hotel at all cost! No power sockets in the room, no wifi (only a modem which doesn't work without power), no lift (was on 4th floor)

    For those who just arrived Nairobi international airport, but donot know much about Nairobi and/or donot have time to locate a hotel, Oryx hotel might be the best option, its not far away from the airport, its sited at the suburb but not far away the downtown center, it is convenient to transport to the town by taxi or city shuttle.

    it is a new hotel, there are still some items under construction

    The room was really nice and clean bed large

    The dining area is situated in the bar which was a bit noisey.

    We stayed this hotel for one night transit purpose. We asked 5am wake up called, 5 :15 breakfast and 5:30 shuttle bus to the airport. BUT, any hotel staff did not show up at the morning and the door to the reception is locked. We were completely trapped inside hotel. Fortunately other guest had a cell phone and called the hotel's number and the reception women woke up. (she stayed at the hotel) . If the hotel got fire, we could not go out because the door was locked. Kitchen staff did not prepare for breakfast and no driver ready to airport. I don't recommend this hotel.

    Too many mosquitos in the room about 50. It happen sometimes but the problem is their mosquito net. I have never seen such a bad design mosquito net which never closed properly. The hotel is located to the heavy traffic street. The window is not noise resistance. We were lucky tired enough to sleep in the noisy room.
