“Nairobi's Iconic building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

A great landmark of Nairobi city located within the central business district. One of the tallest towers of the city. This is certainly the best place to see the city on rooftop. There is a fee for being at the rooftop though.

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We booked a taxi for the day through aircab. The driver was able to come with us to the top and provided us with good information on the sites, history etc, was like our own personalised service for the day. View is great from the height and relatively inexpensive to go. There are no markings or signs on the roof to display what you are looking at.

“Exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Will participating in a tourism exhibition in Nairobi, I visited the KICC and this place is just magical. quite large halls, very exciting restaurant and coffees shops. What moved us is the level of cleanliness. It is amazing how they manage to keep this place clean and neat. We were told, Never leave Nairobi as a visitor before visiting KICC

“If there for a conference, as I was, you can expect a square meal to be served but no contest for Michelin stars ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Lunch at the KICC, either taken in the Chinese restaurant or one of the set up function rooms, means to queue up on food buffets, load your plate, find a table to sit down, eat, get up and go. All adequate but nothing exciting for sure.

“360 degrees view of Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is certainly the place to see the city on a rooftop. It's one of the tallest building in CBD area and the fees is worth paying to be on the top.

It would also help if they have legends up there to guide the visitors who are coming alone or without a guide. Fortunately, had a local friend accompany me and can pinpoint which place is which.
