This hotel is one of the many hotels under the IHG (Intercontinental Hotels Group). It is located in one of the business hubs of Nairobi the Upper hill area. Crowne Plaza is a five star hotel and is a home away from home for the corporate or leisure traveler alike. The building that houses the hotel is ultra modern and... More

The rooms are spotlessly clean and offer plenty of workroom for the business traveler. The hotel location is away from major traffic noise, and the rooms are absloutely quiet. But what really stood out in my visit was the attentiveness of the staff - from Ian the doorman, to the concierge lounge manager, to the lobby personnel - everyone went... More

Having special dietary needs it is usually hard to live on the road ... The Crowne Plaza in Nairobi with their dedicated and caring staff makes time spent there a great experience!

This is my second stay a this hotel and this time around i was disappointed. First the parking was a nightmare; i wanted to park in the basement but was advised that basement parking is for staff only! I had to park outside and get rained on! The guy was rude! Second, the bar closed at 11pm and they refused... More

Having stayed at this location four times over the past two years, it has been interesting watching its character grow. The guest rooms are nice, sizeable, includes free wifi (I think - with status I get it regardless), very nice bathrooms, and plenty of work space (I'm always there on business). The expansive dinner buffet has something for everyone, though... More

I stayed in this hotel on two recent business trips to Nairobi, in June and October 2014. Each time for about 3 nights. The guest rooms are nice, modern and very comfortable. Though the hotel is in the business district, the rooms are quiet. They offer complimentary wifi throughout the hotel. The hotel has a good restaurant, Baraka. I used... More

Located in the business area called Upper Hill (perfect for business travel), I had a lovely stay over 3 days! The room was very spacious -- lots of room for luggage, a desk to work from and a decent size TV (a minor drawback was that the remote control's range was only half the size of the room). Bathroom was... More

To be brutally honest, I generally have low expectations for developing world hotels, even higher-end chains. The Crowne Plaza Nairobi is much better than expected and is probably one of the best places I've stayed in Africa.
