Customer Travel Tip: If you have to go, only spend a couple of days.... Nairobi is much more interesting and pleasant. If you want beaches go to Zanzibar!

Liked: I thought it was a pretty awful place! Especially over Christmas/New Year. Very crowded, too much traffic and rip-off prices everywhere.

Disliked: see above

Disliked: Noisy guesthouse in the centre and not good customer service.
