This hotel was great, the staff were friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. I would recommend upgrading the wifi if staying connected is vital to you, it wasn't to me. Nancy was our housekeeper and did a great job, and beautiful towel arrangements. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The Sarova Panafric is a good basic hotel in Nairobi. The normal rooms are basic but the newer suites are much better as they are still quite new, so see if you can request one. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful from the reception staff, the porters and the restaurant staff. This is where this hotel really excels...

We spent 2 nights at the Sanova Panafric Hotel. The hotel was recommended by the guide we had arranged for a one day tour of Nairobi and his recommendation was excellent.

We stayed at the Sarova PanAfric Hotel in Nairobi on 12 December 2016, and were glad to have returned. Once again the room was comfortable and inviting after a long flight from Australia, and the restaurant provided the same great food and service that we remembered from our first visit.
