A successful hotel??? Many people come here?? Oh please. Don't make me laugh. Very tiny television sets, dirty rooms (dust everywhere), no music, no table ketchup, no napkins, no hot rooms, no pizza's, no beef, no nothing, and tourist camera's are not allowed (they ask you to put them out when you try to record some of these facts); this...

The hotel is very well located, close to the city center and to other bars and restaurants. Otherwise, anything but a 4 starts hotel. The furniture was broken, the cleaning was not well done. Bathroom door broken and bulbs broken that were partially fixed only after our second request. The breakfast was very poor also - a small variety of... More

Stayed there for two weeks and enjoyed how the hotel staff were very helpful throughout my stay.. Of course the food was very good considering that im not really into their cousines but overall they really know how to treat a customer with a smile.

This hotel is centrally located in CBD Nairobi. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The security is also reliable. The conference rooms facility is a plus for small and medium size gatherings or corporate meets.

The Clarion Hotel was quite a pleasant surprise for me when i stayed there a few weeks ago. I loved the small intimate lobby as well as the helpful and friendly check in staff. The room i stayed in was clean and well maintained. Dinner at the restaurant was simply spectacular. The food was so delicious that i had to... More

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
