The Sandton Palace is a 3 stars for Kenyan standards - but Kenyan standards are very, very different from European, American and most Asian standards. Rooms are smallish and acceptably clean with basic amenities (TV, a Bible, clean towels ad sheets, soap), restaurant is OK with a good choice of local / Indian style cuisine and OK prices, staff is...

I stayed in a junior suite for two nights. It has a good view of Nairobi city and located in the city center so it was easily accessible to the different areas for shopping. Its a perfect choice for budget travelers.

Sandton Palace Hotel in Nairobi was the most terrible hotel we ever stayed in the last few years. Location was bad, took us 3 hours from the airport to reach the hotel of course Nairobi traffic is partly to be blamed and the heavy rain... room was small and the bathroom even smaller so after shower the room would flood,...

I stayed at Sandton Palace for 3 nights in early August. As with many Nairobi hotels I have stayed in, the room itself was quite small with a very basic show/toilet en-suite and the furnishings very bland and basic. For a business traveller, this might be adequate purely for accommodation but I don't think it makes the grade for a... More

I have been there twice before. The location is easy to access, though non-residents need to take caution along the street leading to it in terms of security, if on foot. Can be accessed by a cab though. I loved the receptionists, friendly, helpful. Restaurant is great, great service, good food. Rooms are big enough, beds are huge and comfy... More

This is not the hotel for anyone desiring a luxury stay, but it is perfectly safe, the staff are nice, and the rooms have free wi-fi and a television, and the bedding is satisfactory. It is located on a somewhat ominous-looking street in the business section, so probably not the best choice for first time travelers to Nairobi unless you... More

We were charged $80 for the room and breakfast and this felt overpriced for what it was. The room was grubby (more than others in Nairobi in the same price range) and there was only a trickle of water coming out of the bathroom tap, and no water at all for the shower. Although I am sure that the bedding... More
