“A bit dark and musty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Don't know how old this building is; it is impressive in size but is now suffering severely from poor internal lighting and poor maintenance of facilities.

“Quickest way to see the whole City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Take the lift and then climb to the Helicopter pad and you have a great view covering half of Kenya. Better still take one of the complimentary guides and you can be walked through the view from Kilimanjaro to down town Nairobi.

I went with a group and we had a great time walking around the courtyard, viewing the Jomo Kenyatta statue and seeing wonderful views of the city!

“Great view of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The visitors centre is in the conference centre and for a small fee, you can go up the lift and then a few flights of stairs to the observation deck where you have a panoramic view of Nairobi. Only then, can you appreciate just want a sprawling city this is - and just how many people and vehicles are on every road and street. It is well worth a visit to get Nairobi into perspective
