We stayed here on three occasions, on all three we got a free bump up to the premium rooms. Amazing rooms, including a free standing claw foot tub. 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

I've stayed at the Hillpark a number of times and I keep coming back because: - the location is great for getting into town (though the Mombassa Road is always v. busy). 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

First night (or rather early morning) I got there at about 3am after an 18 hour journey - desk staff very surly and didn't seem to want to check me in - eventually things happened and I got a room. Room looked interesting with stone shower cubicle and claw foot bath, but in the shower, the tap fell off and... More

This hotel costs a fair bit, so you'd expect a fair bit. But no, the ruins are pokey, the restaurant is complete rubbish, and the worst bit was the service. No smiles, the staff look annoyed when you ask them a question. And the worst bit is when we asked for a nearby shop, the one recommended was suggested by... More
