what is going on everyone welcome to the channel  and don't worry this is not a christmas video but   for us right now it is christmas eve it is so as  you know we can't be with our family this year   so we're making the most of it and we're  very last-minute planners so the coast and   everything was all booked up yep because i  hear that's what you do on christmas year   um so yeah we decided to stay in town at  a hotel and do a little staycation yeah   so we just arrived at our hotel for the next  two days the four points sheraton hurlingham   so this four points kind of like the other  one that we stayed at this one is also an   award-winning hotel yeah it looks like they're  all winning awards i know because i mean they're   pretty good hotels they are good hotels yeah so  as you guys know we love showing you some crazy   luxury hotels and and safari camps and all those  things but you know what at the end of the day   they're very expensive and this hotel is the  perfect middle ground it is affordable luxury here   in nairobi not too expensive but high quality food  very nice hotel rooms and a rooptop up pool i love   rooftop pools same every pool in canada at a hotel  is inside yeah it's hard to find an outdoor pool   well because it's probably because it's cold like  eight months out of 12. it's not so anyway i'm   sure we're going to spend a lot of time at the  pool yeah because it's pretty cool and i'm sure   there's a great view too i'm sure there is yeah  so as usual well let's start with a room tour   so because it's christmas and we wanted  a little bit of extra space we're going   to be having our computers out talking to  our family we actually got the king suite   so come look around it's very spacious i was shocked  and we have two big windows gives us lots of   natural light as you can see it's very spacious  we have a king-sized bed and you have a little   seating area over here and actually with your  mini bar area you have like three wardrobe closets and in our fashion we even have robes and for  the bathroom we have a very clean bathroom with   a very nice big tub and something i actually just  noticed should have noticed earlier but it has a   full-length mirror i feel like most hotels don't  have that and as a girl getting ready i appreciate that so right here we have like the perfect  little working area because obviously we're   probably going to be like editing a few youtube  videos answering comments and just like tracey   said we're going to talk to our family tomorrow  and open a few gifts maybe and things like that   and my favorite feature in this room this tv  this is the biggest tv i've ever seen in a   hotel room i don't know about you guys but like  you never get like what's this like 52 inches or   something i mean you get like a little 30 32 inch  in hotel room so i'm pretty pumped about that and   we're even greeted with a plate of fresh fruit and  some cookies chocolates that's say merry christmas   and right here in the corner  behind me is my friend richard   why is he a richard i don't know i looked at  him and i was like you look like a richard so   richard so we unpacked our things for the  next two days i worked a little bit of on   next saturday's video listen to some disney  christmas music we did that too and now we're   gonna go see what they have for supper i have  high expectation because the the last four point   was very good it was very good i'm starving  so let's go so guys we just came back from supper and  wow and i know we always say wow but like   you just gotta understand that back in canada like  you know four point sheraton is a worldwide brand   they're everywhere and we've been to a few uh  in canada and yeah even right in Halifax yeah   and you know what like the rooms are very  similar and the service is very similar   but the food is completely different the food  standard here in every hotel that we've been in   kenya is just so much higher i have never  had so many three four five course meals   than i have being here in nairobi so i just feel  like in the hotels here and like i said like four   point it's a super affordable hotel and the food  is excellent like in canada the food's good yeah   and here like i don't even i don't have words  for it i could have paid like double the price in canada and i would have been like yeah that was worth like 250 almost 100 yeah for  the five course meal that we just had yeah and i   think we paid like less than half that another  thing that i really like is just like tonight   i saw the chef like coming out of the  kitchen and going around to every table   asking if everything was fine kind of explaining  the food like i really appreciate when a hotel or   a restaurant does that i think like that's really  nice we've noticed it lately with managers too and   i think one of the guys was a manager he was going  around it was amazing so now we're gonna wind down   a four tonight and we're gonna catch you guys  back up tomorrow for for a lot of food and for   the rest of the hotel and for the rooftop pool and  so much more see you in the morning good morning   guys and merry christmas i know it's no longer  christmas for you guys but it's actually december   25th or right now so we just got our in-room  breakfast which looks and smells very good yeah   it does and then after that it's gonna be a pack  day it is we're gonna go to the gym because even   if it's christmas we eat a lot of food so we gotta  go to the gym and it looks like there's a good gym   here too yeah exactly so we're gonna go check that  out we're gonna go explore the hotel a little bit   there's a christmas brunch which is probably  just like a normal brunch um here at the hotel   so i'm very pumped about that at 12 and then we're  gonna go to the pool and explore the hotel and do   a bunch of things so i hope you're ready for an  eventful day yes but first i'm hungry let's eat   so breakfast was amazing it was really  really good but now time to go burn a   few calories so we're gonna go visit the  gym don't worry guys like it's not gonna   be a full workout video this is not a fitness  channel even though that was my first dream   but i'm just gonna bring you along real quick  show you guys what's here what are your options   quick workout and then after that more  food hotel tour pool and so much more okay guys i have to give credit  where credit is due and this   is actually an amazing hotel gym they have  those techno gym machine which are very high   quality and a lot of variety loved it okay so  literally seven minutes ago i was at the gym   now i'm back i took a shower and we are  ready to go for brunch and i think it's   gonna be great because now we're kinda we're  buddy with the chef so i have a lot of faith   in him i think it's gonna be really good  it's gonna be great let's go check it out   okay we are back at the room because  we just realized that everyone is like   super dressed up which i really like  and we brought something for it so   we thought it was more supper yeah might  as well change okay go go go go go okay three minutes later second attempt  let's go down again let's try this again   now we look like everyone else so we just went around the buffet and  the variety is amazing we barely have   enough space in our plates there's also  a barbecue outside that i can't wait to   taste but right now the first few bites amazing now let's try the meat from  the barbecue that's pretty good now it's my favorite time dessert time   so guys guys guys guys we just came back  from this uh buffet and it was unreal it was   really really good and the variety i mean like  they had everything yeah and i have to say when   i think of buffet i think of a lower quality  food because normally it's like it's like an   all you can eat so in order to yeah it's it's a  lot it's a lot of food and normally it's all okay   food and at least it's like that back in canada  like buffets are known to have a big variety   and none of the food is excellent  none of the food is bad it's just   average but not here it was all excellent it was  all excellent everything and the flavor and like   oh my gosh they even had turkey yeah as a canadian  i'm very excited yeah that was that was really   nice and after talking to the chef like you can  tell that you really like take cares of like   every single platter and like yeah he's really  proud of everything that he's making so like   it's really nice yeah of course because it's  delicious it's amazing yeah so as you guys   know this was a buffet for christmas so a special  event but they're actually doing breakfast buffet   uh all the time so like if you come here uh what  we showed you is is a good example of like the   the quality of the food that's for sure i have no  doubt that you know the daily buffet is as good as   that just like the supper that we had last night  yeah so now we're gonna see if we still fit in our   swimsuits probably wasn't a good idea to do a  buffet before yeah we ate a lot and then we're   gonna go check out that famous rooftop pool i'm  a big fan of those me too so let's get changed and now we're ready to go what are you doing well i  ate too much i'm trying to   look jack in my bathing suit  for the pool so even though it's december here in  kenya today it's 28 degrees so i have   to say like i'm enjoying this pool quite a  bit so not used to that no that's for sure   and because it's on the rooftop like i  have to say like the view is quite nice too   yeah and there's a bar so you  can get drinks it's pretty nice back in the room that was pretty fun it was fun i  like rooftop pools i'm a sucker for rooftop pools   it's pretty nice it is nice okay so here's a  little overview of this hotel yes it is more   like of a of a business uh kind of hotel that's  literally the clientele that they're going after   but trust me like it is definitely good enough for  a staycation because the gym is nice the pool is   great the food is phenomenal like the rooftop  bar and patio and everything like it's great   i would come back just for the food yeah like yeah  the food alone worth it so as we arrived uh inside   the hotel we we just checked in and then like on  your left side you get a little cafe which they   have like desserts and stuff so that looks pretty  nice and i guess they make all kinds of coffee   which i don't like then on the first floor you  have uh their restaurant where this is where you   can have like buffet and that kind of stuff on the  weekends but it's it's actually open all the time   but their specialty restaurant is actually on  the rooftop where we were yesterday and when   they say specialty that they mean it because it  was delicious that was so so so good yeah yeah so   that one is called mezza on deck and it's actually  on the other side of the pool so you don't have   to worry about the noise so like the pool shut  down in the evening for dinner so that's okay   and actually even during the day there's  the pool on the other side but there's like   a whole bunch of shrubs that kind of make the  privacy of the restaurant yes that's pretty nice   and the view is quite nice too it is got a nice  view of like the the cbd and it's all downtown   nairobi so i like that too so once again because  it's christmas today tonight we are probably not   going to go to the restaurant because we want to  facetime our family and kind of have a virtual   christmas with everyone uh so we're probably gonna  have supper in the room which i'm sure is gonna be   great i'm gonna actually ask the chef like what's  your favorite that's what i want yeah like let's   just surprise us yeah and then later on tonight  there's actually one place that we didn't go yet   no and it's called level eight there's seven levels  yeah it's seven level and it's called   level eight and it's between level seven and six  yeah technically it should be level six and a half   yeah pretty much really anyway it looks super  super nice kind of a bar lounge kind of vibe yeah   so pretty excited about that i think it's going  to be a good place to you know end our christmas   and have a nice drink yep i think good atmosphere  i think yeah yeah we've kind of been thinking of   just leaving it up to you whatever your favorite  is for each just choose one for us and yeah   we're not picky eaters at all we eat everything  so that sounds great thank you very much so we just received our supper in the room and  basically when they asked us what we wanted for   supper well we asked them to pick for us so they  just brought us a real kenyan delicacy something   that we heard a lot about basically it's a fresh  tilapia fish from lake victoria yeah whole yeah   whole like it's it's a full fish we i've never  eaten neither never eaten a full fish like that   neither i feel like he's looking at me i turned  it around stop looking at me anyway so it comes   with uh so you got the fish the tilapia comes with  ugali kachumbari and a swahili sauce i don't really know what that means it smells really good it  does smell very good yes let's see are you excited   you stress a little about that fish i'm curious  i'm sure it's going to be good oh yeah like   you guys need to understand like back in canada  tilapia is no good it's like farm tilapia raised   in massive numbers it's not fresh it's it's really  cheap fish but this is straight from lake victoria   the taste of the fish too completely different  oh yeah it's not even remotely the same yeah   okay now whoa drop your fork now we gotta  do a proper a proper bite grab a little bit   of ugali and you gotta like mash it like that  okay now you like you pick up some fish with it   and then like put some like a little bit  of kachumbari there's too many flavors i   want the spinach and the swahili sauce on mine i'm  pretty sure you need to do the kachumbari okay so good i'm not sure what that swahili sauce is but  it's like a little bit spicy and it's really good so guys that was very good it was so good  that fish so different than what we're   used to in canada for sure because like  once again like tilapia in canada no good   no and like it just the fish had so much flavor  without a fishy taste like i've never had fish   like that like white fish like that yeah no wow  really good once again that chef did it again now we have one last thing to do here to  go to that secret bar don't think it's that   secret theres a sign a a it's secret it's  level eight and it's between six and seven   it's secret is it actually between six and seven  well yeah you gotta go to the seventh floor and   then you gotta go down a little which makes you  think you just go down to the sixth floor but just   six and a half okay i'll let it's  secret it's a secret bar party pooper good morning so we are about to leave  and i have to tell you guys like two nights   two breakfasts two supper and one special event  buffet later we loved it oh yeah i have nothing   bad to say about it no and you know me in my  bed the bed was so comfy yeah very comfortable i   slept great and great pillows too yeah but overall  like if there's one thing that really stands out   in this hotel is the food the food was amazing yes  the room was great a very good service the inside   of hotel in general looks very good and everything  they even have like the christmas tree and the   gingerbread house and all those nice things but  the food is and you know what the cocktails last   night they were very good yeah like they were  so we actually got married in a bar in halifax   like a mixology bar and they were almost as good  as that oh like that yeah that's good yeah the   drinks were really nice and the bar had like a  nice little ambiance too like you know good music   and they give you peanuts to munch on which i ate  all of them great view and everything it was it   was a good time it was a perfect way to uh to un  to end their staycation yeah so the great thing   about this hotel is that it's not that expensive  compared to like when we go to you know the   kempinski or hemingways or other hotels like that  that are well known in nairobi for you know luxury   and very very expensive prices this place actually  starts at 131 dollar u.s conversions right there   and for what you get in terms of service and rooms  and hotel quality i think it's really worth it and   very very reasonable uh pricing and on top of  that all the meals were also very affordable   yeah so like i said we are here for christmas  eve and their christmas eve special was uh   would have been equivalent to 5 000 shillings per  couple not per person yeah so and the food was   phenomenal like honestly the food in my  mind at these two hotels at the four points   is very very comparable to a luxury hotel oh yeah  like there's no difference no it's really really   up there yeah so if anything come for the food  yeah just for the food it's worth it it's so good   yeah so we're all packed up my least favorite part  ready to go time to say goodbye so at the end of   the day we highly recommend this hotel if you're  ever in nairobi and you need you know something   not too expensive great quality this is it  so anyway guys don't forget to like this   video subscribe to the channel as we upload it  twice a week and see you guys in the next one
