As part of a business trip, I booked reservations at the Panari Hotel due to the close proximity of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. It is a short shuttle trip to and from the airport. I stayed in November of 2011 and the shuttle fee was $12.00 USD per person/each way for a shuttle. On my return in December of 2011,... More

Only spent 36hours at the Panari-a quick business trip. The hotel is secure, clean and room was comfortable with modern decor and facilities. Staff were all helpfull. Didn't get time to use pool, gym etc In summary -for Nairobi, it provides a secure environment and caters to your needs together with the convience of being near the airport.

Being put up at the Panari as part of a media group invitational to Nairobi, I had to stay where I was booked. Arrival handling was fairly swift, as I helped to find my own name on the guest arrival list. Getting upstairs one has to watch both elevators, which are not 'coordinated' and guests and staff are often seen... More

Had to stay overnight here due to a delayed transit flight through Nairobi. Found it a Decent Hotel, not flashy, Staff were courteous and helpful. The rooms were large and spacious and the Hotel is close to the Jomo Kenyatta international airport, which makes this a good stopover hotel for those in transit.

Spent 6 days in the hotel. Very secure entrance and security people everywhere. Very good Gym, steam and sauna. Excellent swimming pool. Very good Brazilian style restaurant. Location is near airport but far from town....anyway, not many things to do there.

Windows leaked rain into room, plagued by mosquitoes and bitten almost every night. Food adequate rather than good.... Air Conditioning was switched off every day so returned to a baking hot room every evening Hot water failed whilst I was there - but since the cold water was tepid anyway - not a particular hardship Staff do their best, with...

Stayed at the Panari in October 2011 waiting for my flight back home. Its a decent hotel with very kind and helpful stay. Don't expect luxuries or fancy stuff here, but you will find whatever is necessary for a comfortable and pleasant stopover. Rates are quite high, compared what one is used in the West, but, this is Kenya and... More

A clean, decent hotel with good, friendly service from the staff. I stayed there when I had an airline delay and it was clean and well serviced.
