We felt quite lucky to discover Delta Hotel in Nairobi City Kenya. From by the office (where the lady was very helpful) an unpromising staircase led up to a surprisingly spacious upper gallery, which was one of the lounging and eating areas, and off this were rooms also surprisingly large; ours had a mesh screen dividing it from what was in effect a large balcony overlooking a street.
We came down by devious ways (almost through the kitchen!) to a large restaurant area that rambled through from one street to another.
Something suggested that business people say to each other "Let's meet for breakfast somewhere - how about the Delta?"
Great atmosphere....Exceptional staff and Amazing food! Not your usual city center hotel setup, they really try to make you feel like you’re away in a beach resort room once you are in the rooms.
It's pretty basic but dirt cheap and represents good value for money. I asked for a quiet room on the top floors, and it was dated but perfectly adequate.
It was called an 'economy' room, there wasn't much space around the double bed, there was no a/c or mod-cons, but there was a TV, the bed was comfy enough and the bathroom was spotless. And it only cost 4,000 Ksh.
I didn't stay for breakfast but it was included. It all felt very secure and the staff were friendly and welcoming.
It's pretty decently located in the central part of town - and is a two minute walk from the Norfolk if you fancy somewhere relaxing nearby for a coffee.
Functional, cheap and safe.
