I stayed here a few times about 5 or 6 years ago and thought it was ok. Now it is dated, a mess there are cockroaches in the rooms, no hot water for a shower in the morning when I arrived. The only plus point is that is near to the airport. Staff ok. Restaurant on 2nd floor also ok... More

The Panari Hotel is close to the airport and the staff is extremely professional and helpful. The hotel is up to standard (best amongst other alternatives I have seen). The restaurant is well equipped and above average. The negative side is the price. When paying this much in Europe you get more value for the money but some may say... More

I can't really review the main hotel as it's a long time since I stayed there. It was then comfortable, but overpriced. However, they now have a facility that some reviewers have asked for and after trying this twice, I am quite won over. This is the Black Gold Cafe. It serves snacks and drinks, but also has a full...

Hotel has a Nice Over-View of the Outskirts of the City, which projects the Image that Kenya really has some Very Good Jungle Safari to Enjoy which we all have heard only from the People / or Read in the Travel Books.

I spent three night at Panari and I loved it. I honestly don't understand why some clients complain. The good people at Panari will go extra mile to please you. Keep it up Panari, I will be back for a week long stay next month. Bati

This was a very unassuming and not-so-pretentious hotel close to the airport that suited our needs for a comfortable and quiet night's sleep in a clean environment. The service was very good and friendly indeed with check-in greeted by a drink, hot towels and a big smile. The food in the restaurant (near the lobby) was filling and tasty, with... More
