We stopped at the Sarai Park for two separate nights, one prior to our safari and one after. The first night the room was very large with a double bed. Breakfast was plentiful as it was a serve yourself buffet with a large selection. The room also had tea making facilites. On our return from safari the room had two... More

first of all, the hotel is not as bad as some of the reviews imply it to be. especially considering that it is over 20 years old, privately owned and not part of a chain. on arrival we were greeted with smiles and passion juice after a long, scary plane ride. the rooms are spacious with a separate lounge area....

My only purpose to go to this “5 star hotel”, was to relax and have a problem free day and night, and pamper my self a little bit after a long safari. Do NOT spend your money at this hotel, go to Holiday Inn, Serena or Hilton instead. They are real 5 star hotels. This hotel could only get 5... More

We spent two nights at the start and at the end of our two weeks stay in Kenia. First night we had an efficient checkin and nice room. Second night we arrived about lunchtime. Checkin lasted about an hour; the room was not really clean, bathroom falling apart. Lunch a salad at Café Kigwa: it took about an hour to... More

Stayed in Safari park for a night before moving to Masai Mara. On the outskirts of Nairobi, surrounded by an exotic garden, a really impressive reception and nice little houses, so our initial impression was a very positive one. Sorry to say that the rooms didn't match our expectations: We had a sitting room and bedroom with nice colonial furniture... More

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night as we were transfering between a safari and the Seychelles. The hotel is surrounded by great grounds, and when we arrived we were told we'd been given a suite as we were on honeymoon. This suite was great, with wooden floors and four-poster bed, plus a balcony to sit on and look... More

My wife and I stayed here after a long flight from the US and then Europe. This is a huge facility with multiple buildings. (To send an email I had to walk to another building a few minutes away.) Being out of downtown Nairobi was, I think, safer than being in town. I would have never found the place without... More
