Sankara: picture gallery


The Sankara is one of Nairobi's most stylish and comfortable hotels.
Most of the hotel is constructed around a central atrium, which floods light into the corridors.
On the first floor, The Gallery offers a really big wine selection…
…a coffee shop…
…and an excellent patisserie…
…while across the floor, the Artisan is the hotel's main restaurant…
…and does a fantastic breakfast buffet.
Muhibbah is the Asian-fusion kitchen, where wok-cooked meals are whisked up in front of you.
The Sankara's principal other distractions are on the sixth and seventh floors, and include a spa…
…a well-equipped gym…
…and the top-floor Sarabi bar and 'supper club', with its see-through swimming pool…
…suspended over the streets of Westlands.
The Superior rooms have exceptionally comfortable beds…
…and glass-walled bathrooms.
These are very well designed but do depend on guests sharing the room to be on close terms…
…with each other.
The slightly larger Deluxe rooms…
…have more conventional (though no less luxurious) bathrooms…
…where normal privacy applies.
All rooms have plenty of hanging space and good-sized digital safes.
In both standards of room, a practical work space, with wired and WiFi internet and power points…
…neighbours a comfy armchair.
