I picked this hotel for its central location and good value for a one-night stop-over. It's located in a narrow, very congested and busy street in Central Business District so given the horrendous congestion in Nairobi at most times of day it is not easy getting in and out by car or taxi. We arrived by taxi late at night... More

Many hotels in Nairobi have a noise problem, so it's nice to find a quiet one. I only stayed one night, but the room was fine, breakfast ok. Wifi only worked near the door, not in the middle of the room. Make sure you have a map, it's easy to lose your way back to the hotel. Some reviewers say... More

We stayed at Hotel Central Park this August after our Safari. It was a lot cheaper than any other hotel in Nairobi we took into account and it was definitely the best value for money we could get. It was clean, staff was very friendly and WiFi was super fast! We went on a walking trip in the city centre... More

The hotel is situated in downtown Nairobi City. The theme, decor and ambience is very appealing. If you are a business traveller, who requires a middle budget hotel, this is the place to be. Their services are beyond expectations, starting with the check in at the reception, onto the spacious rooms. The breakfasts and dinners in the restaurant are wonderful... More

I recently stayed at this hotel twice and will never return. The rooms are ridiculously noisy, partly due to the neighborhood (which was not great) and partly due to the Zumba classes that literally vibrate every room in the hotel starting at 6am. We complained to the front desk who was unresponsive. The beds are rock hard, the bathrooms only... More
