What a great find! I originally was in the Intercontinental Hotel for 3 days, but decided to move to the Laico Regency. It was a wonderful choice. In fact, I extended my stay for 2 weeks.
Staff was excellent! They were all very friendly and helpful. The room was bright, very clean and large. Plenty of hot water. Room service quick and very few mistakes in the orders. Good pillows and nice linens/towels.
Internet WIFI was included in the room cost and was very strong and reliable. Housekeeping did a great job of making sure the room remained clean and complimentary coffee and water was kept filled up.
The hotel has several restaurants: Italian, cafe, poolside bar and grill, Main Terrace. The food was always good. Breakfast was served on the Main Terrace, but I only had breakfast twice. It was fine. At the Italian restaurant, stay away from the "Italian Nachos". Otherwise the food was very good.
Within the Hotel complex there is a casino and small shopping complex. A foreign currency exchange/Western Union location in the hotel allows you to change money at a great rate.
It is hard to find fault with this hotel. The only things I can mention are: Carpet in my room was rather worn; Food item preparation and presentation were never consistent if you ordered the same thing on different days. Each time they were a little different, but still very good!
Next time I have to be in Nairobi, I will stay here again!
