The room was clean but all I can say is it was very tired... The hotel business centre was well manned and the young lady in charge was extremely helpful. The main reception area is large and can be noisy. The whole place just seems to require a little TLC.

Don't ever stay at this hotel, full stop. Much better value at Sankara and Villa Rosa or you need to be near the airport Eka. Bad experience. Bad experience. It is very old fashioned for the price and the worst customer service.

Amazing structure. I stayed there for one night only whilst in transit and I wish I could have prolonged my stay. Loved the interior of the hotel, the room was quite to my liking, comfortable and well-equipped. Pleasant staff, well-organised and helpful service. I would recommend this hotel.

Located on Mombasa Road, I noticed Panari Hotel, Panari sky Centre, on my way to Pampas Churrascaria, the Brazilian steak house on the same building. For then, my mission and my friend was carnivorous! Panari Hotel was on my mind as I headed to explore. Impressive, a warm five-star service, smiling staff, a testimony of contentment. Affordable pricing, panoramic view... More

We ended up at the Panari when Kenya Airlines flights were messed up (and credit to Kenya Air for making accommodations and meals hassle free, unlike most US carriers). Although the design of the hotel is strange (reception on the third floor, strong Soviet influences), the rooms were very nice and the breakfast and lunch buffets were excellent, and was... More

From our initial enquiry that was responded to by Tom in reservations to our one night stay nothing was to much trouble. We were met on our arrival into Nairobi by a property representative and transferred to the property in a clean and comfortable vehicle. Checkin procedures were seamless and efficient. Our room on the 8th floor was very clean... More
