Taken out of the 80s, it needs urgently a renovation. Staff is very helpful, security is good.

I stayed at the Intercontinental in Nairobi for a total of 12 nights in August/September 2011 (an 11 night stay and a 1 night stay). The purpose of my trip was primarily business, and I travel frequently throughout Africa, so I have a pretty good frame of reference. On the positive side, the food was consistently good. I wasn’t served... More

As always the lovely door personnel, security, front desk, servers, etc. ware all so welcoming and warm. The lobby area was nice, our standard room was also ok. The spa was pretty disappointing, in bad need of updating and repair. The restaurants seemed to need the same kind of attention. VERY comfortable beds compared others in Kenya so the restful... More

I stay in the IC Nairobi 3-4 times a year & I've known what to expect. Service is good & consistent, but not exceptional. The only reason I've not moved to the Norfolk is loyalty points. After checking out on my last visit I vowed never to return. The last 2 times I have stayed the hotel bar was overrun... More

Overall impression: I have an overall good impression of the Intercontinental Nairobi, Kenya. The hotel is already a littlte bit aged and all facilities not on the latest status. However everything on an aceeptable level and especially in Africa compared to others options in a very good shape. Check-in: efficient and friendly room: old style, with a nice bed as... More

I stayed in this hotel, after not having slept there for 11 years. I was told it was renovated. Well not my room. I frequently went there for dinner in the past, when they had an Indonesian Chef, ( Nugi) who was excellent and brought the level of dining up tremendously, but he too has moved on. Since I was...

Though hotel gets the job done, in dire need of a spruce up. It seems stuck decades ago. Hotel rooms are OK. Picture a IC hotel room circa 1990 and you get the idea. We had dinner at the Italian restaurant - took an hour for the appetizers to arrive, another 45 mins for the main course; even though there... More
