Conveniently located near the airport with a great view overlooking the game park. Service is average compared to Kenya's high standards but the food is great. The facility needs improvement especially the toilets (tiles have served their time) and I would want to go back to this hotel but imagine how great it will be with better fittings and tiles.

Our first experience was a hotel shuttle from the airport with 2 very nice men in suits, looking very dapper and being very polite. We rode the 10 minutes to the hotel (3 of us) and were then charged 55 Euros. They wanted 110 Euros round trip! Needless to say, we argued them down as they had promised 30 Euros... More

From the moment I was greeted at the airport by the reception manager and his driver (transfers additional to the overnight stay, but worth the investment for a hassle free trip to and from the hotel) to the minute they dropped me off again horribly early the next morning, the Paranri Hotel was just perfect for a lay-over. My room... More

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.
