Been staying at the Panair for a month now (work) It's not a bad place, the food is good although a bit overpriced. Breakfast is arounf 2500KSH, equivalent to £15 or so. It's self service which is good if you fill your plate every morning. If you just have coffee and toast thats a different matter. The rooms are clean... More

The Panari is close to the airport and probably a good choice for a very short stay. It does not have a welcoming reception desk and the employees do not look very motivated. The Coffee Shop downstairs has a more modern ambiance and the food there and in the main restaurant is good. I loved the view from the large... More

This was a wonderful hotel! Admittedly I was only there 3 1/2 hours, just to freshen up between flights coming into Nairobi and then back to the airport for a flight to Kilgari.

The hotel is near the airport and the rooms are clean... but they never turned up for airport pick-up, breakfast was terrible (but it was available at 5am!) and the price does not justify the service.
