Stayed there for 3 different nights during our safari. The rooms were clean and the staff was serviceminded. Breakfast is good. We had dinner one time, and it was high priced. At one time they had only prepared the dobleroom for one person (with only towels and stuff for one person). We had to kontact the staff several times to...

Only stayed a night on my way to the coast but found it really friendly and great for a stop over. Really good breakfast and the most delicious decaf coffee! Great staff, clean rooms, warm welcome, all good!

The hotel is nice and the service is really good. It's located not far away from the city center. You can either walk there (which is not recommended by the hotel) of take a taxi for about 5$ to reach touristic spots like the central market. The rooms are clean but not very modern. It was a bit noisy and...

While attending a conference in a facility some 14 km from downtown Nairobi, I had the opportunity for only one dinner offsite and this was at the Panafric. About 150 of us [almost all women] were loaded onto buses and taken downtown for a celebratory dinner that was attended by some government representatives. The hotel staff provided a warm welcome...

We stayed here at the beginning and end of a safari trip. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, however the hotel itself needs some work. The rooms are very basic for the price, they are really motel standard but are clean and reasonably well presented. We had no hot water on our first night there, which, having traveled 24...

Enjoyed everything about it from the service, cleanliness and comfortability and also the soft music. Definitely a second visit is a must. Waiters are very pleasant,fast and eager to assist where need be. Keep it up. The location is also a plus. Very convenient.

I brought of a group of 12 to this hotel and we had an excellent experience. The lobby area is small, but cozy. The poolside restaurant was a nice change of pace, but the main one also has outdoor seating I used several times. The staff was extremely accomodating. The upgraded rooms (x22 - x33 on each floor) have the...

Stayed a few nights here end of May. There is good security, go through one security point, then at entrance there is a metal detector as well as they scan your bags. At night there is a security person posted on each floor near the elevators. The staff was friendly, I would like to especially mention Benson in the lobby,...

I have been again and again to this hotel. One of the safest in Nairobi where safety is a real issue. There is a guard on each floor. The hotel has ministers and high level ranking government visitors regularly. Their full breakfast is unbeatable by any standard. I mean you don't need lunch once you have had your breakfast ;-)...
