On entering the hotel lobby, you notice a empty aquarium, with no fish and no water inside ? Is this a good omen ? The room was small and dingy, with a big noisy fan just above your head. Made you very aware to take care whilst dressing or undressing, if you wanted to keep your hands ? The shower... More

I personally like palmer hotel, rooms, ready breakfast and fast serving receptionists, except for two major things. 1. Staying on third floor without lift is tedious. They should instal lift for the front wing that lead to rooms 2. the fron wing has some nearly kesha noise (on friday night(s)) coming from a church on the roadside that will leave... More

The hotel is in a good location and the staff are friendly. However, we left some bags with valuables with the front desks while we went to Kakamega Forest for two nights. When we returned we noticed that a camera was missing from one of our bag. When we reported it to the front desk, they didn't believe we had... More

This hotel is conveniently located, and all the drivers I asked knew where it was. It is midway between the center of the city and Mega City mall, where we had a meeting. The room itself was dingy, small and the plug point didn’t work. This was for the room that was 2000 a night, but the room I saw... More

Having made a prior reservation I was pleasantly surprised when the receptionist offered me a cheaper room than the one I booked. He gave me a quiet, rather bare but perfectly clean and comfortable room at the rear instead of a more expensive one in the front of the building. Good bed, ceiling fan, tv; bathroom with clean fixtures and... More

For the 3500KES paid for a double room, it was worth it. Room was on the 1st floor & away from traffic. it was spacious, had a table & 2 seats, mosquito nets & fan. we never tried out the tv. The shower was hot, good pressure. The entire room & bathroom was clean, nothing to complain about. Bedsheets were... More

I've stayed at Palmers 3 or 4 times a year for the past 4 years. As I prepared for the March 2011 trip, I was delighted to see that Palmers had a website. And even more, they were offering a 30% discount on stays of 3+ days. And a 50% discount at their restaurant. And drinks in the rooms. I... More
