Was invited to dinner by local associates who chose the venue. Last visited these premises some years back. Roof top venue was undergoing renovations so we dined on 1st floor. Can recommend the butter chicken - was well presented and tasty. Service on point and waitron remained in hailing distance.

Haven't been back here since they started renovating the pool area, that's a month ago. This very minute am seated here n totally love what they did with the floor. Much easier to move about in heels n the lighting at night is just spectacular. Sankara gives me a reason to love this place all over again...#madlove

Our experience at Sankara Hotel was excellent! We were very impressed by the attention to detail of the hotel and restaurant staff. They took the time and made the effort to place roses, rose petals, fruit, wine, fresh chocolate-covered strawberries, and truffles, among other things, into our room. The table at the restaurant was also all decked out and the...

Hotel Located in Westlands not so far from the city business district. Located right next to the Sarit Centre shopping mall. Wonderful interior design, the rooms are clean and spacious. They have a rooftop pool and bar which brings out a nice ambience in the evening. Cant complain about the food, loved the buffet breakfast. Would definitely be back.

On the surface the Sankara is very nice - the rooms are comfortable and the French press and real coffee in the rooms are a nice touch. However, when when we checked out we were charges a higher rate than what we were quoted when booking the room. When we tried to dispute the rate we were told that we...

Had an excellent stay at this modern hotel in Nairobi. I particularly loved the design of the common spaces and restaurants. My Superior Room was great - bright and spacious, with a large bathroom. Not as sleek as the rest of the hotel, in my opinion, but still very nice and comfortable. One of the best features of Sankara is...

A pleasant stay at the Sankara hotel. Excellent customer service, modern fixtures and good location. Helpful staff, notably Monica from the front desk. Highly recommended. Home away home. I will definitely return.

I chose Sanaka mainly because of its security. The receptionist was welcoming and the check-in was fairly quick. However, the bell boy or whoever the person taking my bags to the room was, seemed unhappy to be taking them and seemed unhappy with the amount I had tipped him. He kept looking at me and then at the money and...

An upmarket Lounge with fantastic views of Westlands Nairobi. The ambience is magnificent with a relaxing vibe and friendly staff. The open architectural design adds to the experience and overall comfort.
