We were here only overnight before a safari. The hotel is very nice. It is quite modern and beautifully designed. Hotel staff was friendly and courteous so we felt at home. Although we didn't have time to enjoy it, there is a very nice roofdeck with bar and pool. We went there in the morning after breakfast and it provides... More

This is a sweet hotel. Very modern, next to the Sarit Center Mall, in the Westlands area... it's fairly new and everything still works. My wife and I came here for a weekend so I could watch the Superbowl on TV. Where we live outside of Nairobi, we couldn't get the game, so we splurged and pampered ourselves for the... More

Everything worked perfectly. Hotel is clean and secure, with good food, and very hospitable staff. They have a good gym, and a small but popular roof top swimming pool with a bar and bistro. This is a happening spot in the evenings. Which was great because this was a business trip. It is one of those well functioning (not over... More

Like all other exclusive Hotels Sankara is very costly, even just ordering a drink will cost you 600-700ksh. The only good thing about Sankara is the glass floor on the top floor, and the pool with the glass bottom. Otherwise nothing that speicial that makes it better than other Hotels of its kind.

The Sanakara, Nairobi, is a haven from the dust, noise and traffic of Nairobi. The staff of friendly and efficient. Security is excllent and unobtrusive. Rooms are very clean, comfortable with excellent amenities. The Roof Top bar is good with attentive staff. Food is excellent and well presented throughout the hotel. Taxi service though is expensive. Overall an excellent experience.

in my humble opinion, the best hotel in Nairobi, very good service and outstanding rooms. the top floor pool is a must use for a view of the city. walking distance to clubs at night make it a excellent choice.

If you are paying for it, go elsewhere. There are many attributes of this hotel that are quite good (rooms, WiFi, etc.) but since I am paying full price for a Club Floor room, and 1/2 the way through what it a minimum of 10 day stay, recommend elsewhere for "value for the money". The rooms are great. The bathrooms... More
