I had a weekend stay recently at Hillpark. The first time I went there, it was Kenya Airways that took me there, when the messed up my flight. This time around, I was in for a weekend meeting. The place might have been a personal residence turned into a hotel but hey.. what I need is that stuff work. I... More

Residents have everything cheaper here, not fair on tourists. My room was $220 for non-residents but KSH 12,000 for residents (about $150). Lovely hotel though, good value for money. Complimentary breakfast and was a feast! I will be back.

Positives: brand new rooms with claw foot tubs and safes helpful staff, we did not load a bag and the reception was quite helpful (they have a mobile # too) nice lounge... More

On the positive: -The staff were very helpful -The room I was shown into was much better than I expected and relatively comfortable. I requested to b put into a room in the new wing which I... More

Well my first stay here was rather miserable, but this time round I managed to get a room as far away as possible from the Gym and the car park. This made quite a difference. As someone who is always hot and likes to sleep with the windows open, bringing my own mosquito net improved things no end, because I... More

You can actually walk into downtown area if really bad. - the rooms in the new part at very good. if there's three sharing, its cheaper taking the... More

This is a great place to stay for a night or two. The rooms are well equipped and clean and the service is friendly. But I could not believe that none of the rooms have air conditioning or a fan, in a location where it is pretty hot for most of the year. This is a bit of a bugaboo... More
