My group normally meets at the clarion hotel weekly. The conference rooms are of a wide variety i.e. from a small executive meeting to a large number (e.g. a church can fit). The setup is normally customized to our requirements and there is always a dedicated staff to endure you are comfortable.

Stayed twice in July 2014 between safaris. The front of house staff are pleasant and the hotel is clean and central in Nairobi. After that it all goes downhill. Restaurant staff ignore you or take an order and forget to bring it. You are competing against a very noisy TV in the corner which gets much more attention than the... More

I stayed in the Clarion for two evenings during my recent visit to Nairobi and found the hotel well appointed. I travel extensively in Africa and am delighted when I find a gem like this. The hotel comes complete with a gym, sauna, steam room, spa, business centre and restaurant. They also offer an airport shuttle service and are located... More

The Clarion is OK. It appears as though some money has been spent modernising the facility but the details have been forgotten. Like the cool spa bath in my room - but no shower... other rooms have showers I believe. Breakfast was basic... but they have bacon if you ask for it. I had a great massage from a woman... More

This Hotel is coming up better everyday. Super Reliable Wifi on all floors. I personally loved the newly Introduced Steam Bath and by the way, when there, have a look at the deluxe Rooms, they are just awesome. Great Improvement, great milestone. I got a single room for 70$ which in comparison within the town, the deal is great. The... More

My partner and I stayed here based on the Clarion brand as we have stayed at other Clarion hotels in other countries and found them ok. This was just shocking! No WIFI which we made sure to ask before booking and again at checking. We stayed at one of the top floors and there was no hot water at all... More

I have recently stayed at the Clarion Hotel in Nairobi for a week as I was on business nearby. It wasn’t the most expensive hotel in the centre but nor was it the cheapest. I expected a half decent hotel for £90 a night. This was so not the case. The rooms were of a poorly built standard considering this... More

The coffee shop is excellent. However the meals in the dining room need an improvement. They need a bit of touch of class. The napkins look like they were recycled from another hotel and cutlery looks aged. Not so good for a dining experience in a new hotel.
