“Hotel is consistently good, but need to let folks know about shopping village on the property!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I actually love the Safari Park, because I can count on good service and they also respond to my needs of extra body lotion, an iron and other miscellaneous requests. The food is quite tasty and it's a big property so you can walk around safely and get a bit of exercise.

BUT, I have now stayed here 5 times and I never knew there was a shopping village on the property with lots of lovely little shops and folks desperate for business (especially the lovely ladies at shop 5 named Pauline and Stella and the lovely proprietor of shop 4). The market shop be bustling but instead it's a ghost town. There is no need to visit the Masai Market, nor trek to the Mall, because these shops have it all.

SO my recommendation to management is keep up the good work, but TELL people about the market.

Cheers,

Room Tip: Block 800 is the best on the second floor.

We were exhausted when we got there, having traveled over 24 hours from California. The grounds here are extraordinarily beautiful and peaceful. Jacaranda trees, clipped lawns and flower beds. Great free-form swimming pool and many restaurants on the premises. Rooms all have quiet terraces overlooking the grounds. A lovely place. My only complaint was, as in all places we stayed in Kenya, the beds are bone-crushingly hard.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful.

We stayed at the Safari Park Hotel Oct 2-4 2013. The hotel was included with our Safari Package from Odyssey Safaris.
They obviously have researched their hotels and tented camps.
From arriving @ Safari Park Hotel to departing it was very enjoyable. The property is gorgeous, beautiful flowers & trees and well looked after. They have a nice gym, a walking trail around the grounds, the rooms were large, we did receive an upgraded room. No a/c, ceiling fan was all that was needed. Bottled water everyday in the room. The food was good, the staff very friendly. We didn't go to the Casino. We did a tour of Downtown Nairobi and saw some of the other popular named hotels and would rather the Safari Park by far. I also noticed some flight crews stay there. That too is a good sign. Thank You Safari Park for a wonderful stay. Hope to stay with you again .

I was at Safari Park Hotel for a two day (not overnight) conference in September 2013 and I was a tad bit disappointed. The conference room was OK but there was no wifi, not even for the facilitators. The quality of food (buffet) was below par and for anyone who wishes to print something at their business center...be ye warned...they charge a premium that is way too exorbitant...who in this day and age charges Kes 935 for a 17 page document? However, I must commend them for maintaining impeccably beautiful grounds and landscapes.

Stayed here for a regional level meeting from 28-31 October 2013. Rooms have no airconditioning - although expect for about two hours each afternoon: one really doesn't need it in Nairobi. Staff polite, friendly and helpful. Owned by Koreans, the property is quite immaculately kept with really green lawns, a profusion of blooming flower beds and a water body/swimming pool that is quite nice. Breakfast was quite the vast spread with interactive cooking. Took in the show and supper at the Nyuma Chuma Ranch (a meat buffet restaurant) in the premises: be warned folks - you need serious appetite to do justice to the lamb, goat, beef, pork, chicken, turkey, ostrich, crocodile as well as salsas, soup and dessert! The show is really good: I am not too keen to see 'traditional' or 'indigenous people' putting on shows - but the music here is modern and the men and women are amazing and quite enjoy themselves. This restaurant also has a 5-piece combo band - who play decent mellow music after the show is over and one is replete with roasted meats. I would love to come back to this hotel...

The area of the hotel is huge, so there are a lot of green space for relaxing or various events. The location is nicely situated in the outskirt of Nairobi city centre which is a nice option for relaxing. The room is very comfortable and give me some sense of safari elegant as all the furniture is dark wood. The service is very nice and friendly indeed. The only thing that I found unimpressive is the food at the hotel. However, the great service and environment of the hotel can conpensate the tasteless food.

We stayed at Safari Park the first night after arriving in Nairobi. We arrived from the airport very late and only stayed the one night at the start of our vacation. Staff courteous, helpful, made us feel welcome. Rooms had everything that we required. Breakfast avail. nice and early, very good selection. Grounds very gorgeously landscaped. Walked around and took many pictures. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend.
