We stayed at the Palacina for one night after a safari in Tanzania and a beach holiday in Zanzibar, the rooms are perfect, large sitting area beautiful bedroom and bathroom, the restaurant is magnificent and the staff are very helpful. Great place for an overnight stay just wish I could have stayed longer. Have to also thank our tour operator... More

very polite and accommodating staff, they are accustomed to dealing with embassy staff and so they are great to work with when you arrive after a long flight and need to check in early or late, have a nap/shower/coffee even if it's not precisely on the clock you imagined...very comfortable, private and quiet rooms, will arrange driver should you need...

Spent one night at the Palacina. The rooms are of a very good size, enormous bathroom, nice sitting room including DVD player and minibar. Surprised that the rooms were no air conditioned/heated but that was certainly not an issue when we stayed. Very handy location with a lovely outlook, lovely gardens and certainly well maintained. Reception Staff were generally very... More

The design of the hotel is very sleek, typical browns and muted beige. I stayed in an executive suite with bedroom, lounge and bathroom so obviously not a cheap option! View from hotel a building site!!! The hotel staff quite frankly were appalling in particular Martin on the front desk in the morning. We had requested an early morning call... More

everything about the hotel screamed comfort and opulence. we had a great stay in the hotel. good sleep, great design, etc. my only problem here was the restaurant, we thought that the service in the restaurant was so-so and had a little attitude. the food was decent but not great for the price. the restaurant staff seemed a little full...

We only spent one night at Palacina as we were waiting for a flight from Wilson the next day. We've stayed before in Nairobi in big chain hotels (Hilton etc) but found the Palacina much more friendly, quieter, and intimate. So much so we got our driver to take us back there for a great evening dinner whilst waiting for... More

This is the second time we've stayed at Palacina and it just keeps getting better. There is no where else I would rather stay when in Nairobi. The perfect resting place before and after a long safari!!!!! The best part of the hotel....the restaurant for sure. We only wish we had stayed longer to try more of the food! Truly... More

I loved the Palacina - the cozy modern decor, large rooms with huge bathrooms & jacuzzi tub, all the lovely appointments, a private terrace, hands down the best breakfast out there, attentive/responsive staff, the delicious restaurant. I was only there for one night but wished I could've stayed a week. Can't think of anything to criticize here - well done... More

This really was a stay of two halves! On one hand the service and staff were excellent. Our early morning room service breakfast was very good and on time. The suites are large and quite luxuriously furnished. Complementary fruit, biscuits and beverage selection was a nice touch. Balcony was of good size and had comfortable seating. On the down side,...

Palacina Hotel is a luxurious hotel. The rooms (suites) are huge : king bed, walk in, jacuzzi in bathroom, etc. The commun rooms are beautifuk, the staff was really nice, the restaurant's food good... Althought we stayed there only one night, it gave us the moment of quietness we needed before going on a safari.
