Nice Kenyan brewed tea in the restaurant, spacious fully equipped commercial gym & spy. Nice children playing area at the 4th Floor. Any the best is the Ice skiing room. The staff is friendly inside the Hotel. However the Security guards outside look down upon those coming in or exiting on foot. They will rudely turn you back when exiting... More

But only because a very early departure from Nairobi meant I chose to stay closer to the airport and lost another opportunity to get ripped-off at the Hilton then complain about it later on Trip Advisor. The Panari far exceeded my (admittedly low) expectations and I was particularly impressed with the friendliness and efficiency of the staff in every department... More

We stayed at Hotel Panari for one night, as we arrived at midnight and our safari was starting next morning. For a family of 4, we took the executive room. The hotel management had arranged for two additional beds (room was quite spacious). The amenities were good and bathrooom was very clean and functional. Breakfast had a good spread with... More

This was a nice oasis amid the frenzied traffic of Nairobi. We stayed here after a safari and found the room to be nice and large, good shower and amenities, good wifi. Many luxuries after tent cabins (of course charming, too, but in a different way.) The staff was very friendly and the ride to the airport short. If you... More

The hotel is quite fancy, located near the airport, good security, nice hotel drivers, good taxi's comfortable bedroom, and generally very acceptable. It has an ice skating rink, for what reason, I have no idea. If you are doing all your work downtown, this hotel is not convenient because it is so far out and the traffic in Nairobi is... More

Granted, we were only here for a night between flights but we're very happy with the service and the state of the room. We were met promptly at the airport as previously arranged and driven to the hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Thank you for a lovely stay.

I've just checked into this hotel. The room has stains on the carpet, marks/chipped study desk, and the room has not been well looked after. The staff have been waiting for the manager to visit the room and I've been waiting for 40 mins (no sign). I haven't been offered another room as they need to wait for the manager.... More

A five star hotel in the middle of Nairobi, located about 20 minutes from the airport. The security at the hotel is very good, all cars are checked before being allowed in and customers go through a security search before being allowed in to the hotel itself. The hotel has many facilities including the only ice rink in West Africa.... More

We only stayed here 6 hours waiting on delayed flights but the 2 meals we had from the buffet were great, the staff were incredibly friendly & the room was very nice. Near the airport & we even saw a giraffe in the scrub land opposite the airport on the drive to this hotel.
