Hotel definitely needs refurbishment. There was a Rugby tournament taking place and all the players were staying at the hotel thus there was major noise around. Rooms are ok ...bath area was tolerable but could certainly do a make over. The wash basin had a crack mark. Elevators were only 2 and they were taking a long time. They have... More

Copied my feedback to the hotel: An excellent hotel. All the staff at this hotel have shown real professionalism and concern to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Given that the hotel was fully occupied I think that they all did an excellent job. I have stayed at approx. 30 Intercons - this hotel is one of my top... More

I have previously given a not-so great review to the Intercontinental Nairobi. This time around, I stayed at the Intercontinental for 6 days, doing business in Nairobi. I must say that I stayed at stayed at the Club Room Level therefore my experience might be influenced by this factor. The check-in was a breeze at the priority club desk in... More

The Intercontinental is great for business travellers to Nairobi. Situated in a central location, has a pool, the food is great, and it provides parking. The hotel was very busy when we were there but the staff was very friendly - from the concierge to room service.

We stayed at this hotel prior to a safari and also before departing to Tanzania. It appears to be a popular choice for tour groups. Our checkin was fast and efficient. Our room was of average size and was clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and could answer most questions. Since our meals were included in our package safari... More

Spent four nights here for a conference, so very convenient, and convenient for exploring central Nairobi, but sheesh, how about replacing the carpet every now and again and what's with the frequent overcharging and double billing for drinks? Rooms are large, but pretty shabby. Carpet is dingy and worn, brasswear in the bathroom was all either falling off the wall... More
