Very slow service at the reception. Paid with credit card and they charged me twice. Surprised with low quality bathroom. Bad service at the Gold Caffe bar. All in all, bad quality and service for the 240 USD you have to pay per night.

I stayed at the Panari several times while on business in Kenya and the service has always been spectacular. The staff are welcoming, the food is good and the wifi is fast enough. There is also a small shopping centre located below the hotel should you choose to eat or have a drink somewhere other than the hotel.

The room was clean but all I can say is it was very tired... The hotel business centre was well manned and the young lady in charge was extremely helpful. The main reception area is large and can be noisy. The whole place just seems to require a little TLC.
