“Living in Kenya, visiting Nairobi regularly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

A new hotel in Nairobi and one of the better ones for location, service, atmosphere, security and most importantly in Nairobi, value for money. In a city where hotels are grossly over priced it is refreshing to find such a place as Best Western Premier not ready to rip you off. As there are still some works going on I would hope they don't increase their prices when complete.
Obviously as it is a new hotel there are some teething problems but nothing off putting. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The restaurant is small but has a lovely verandah, (for those of us addicted to nicotine), to eat out. The staff are friendly and efficient, though the restaurant staff probably need more time to settle into their jobs before any criticism can be justly made.
I recommend it.... and I will definitely be back to check it out again.

Stayed May 2013, traveled solo

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I stayed at BW Nairobi for 2 nights in April as part of a package booked from the UK. Accommodation exceeded my expectation. The room was spacious, modern and clean. We had a standard room which also included a kettle, tea and coffee as well as complimentary water and WIFI which was really helpful. Bed was comfortable and the linen was brand new. Staff were professional and helpful. Food variety was good - wide selection of breakfast was included in our deal. Location was convenient to get around town and away from the town traffic.

Only downside is the pool and gym were not open yet. Apart from this, very nice hotel/holiday.

Room Tip: Higher floors have city view

Nairobi best western is a new hotel. the reception is airy and welcoming. Pablo restaurant is well appointed with a live kitchen.

however the waiters need to step up and improve the service standards - both for speed of service and taking of orders/ understanding orders. Guess its the teething stage of a new hotel. better supervision required.

Also more parking required.

It is always difficult to find a nice yet not too expensive hotel in Nairobi, since you want to have safety, comfort, but not end paying 300usd for a basic hotel.

After many attempts, I have found the Nairobi Best Western Premier, which has just opened a couple of weeks ago close to the business center.

OK, it is not quite finished, but at the introductory price of 150usd, it is un-bea-ta-ble! Just perfect comfort in the rooms, the breakfast is excellent, and the restaurant, Pablo's, is really up to the level. The Chef is really nice and professional, and came to our table after dinner.

Eventually, the staff is excellent and can manage any request (cars, pick up, changes..) that you may want.

I really recommend this hotel and I hope it will continue to this level of service in Nairobi (and at this price..)

Spent a night at the hotel, room was fantastic, good size. Great Location, easy access to shopping and downtown Nairobi. Has a BRILLIANT roof top deck, definitely worth checking out. Few people know about this hotel, so would recommend people to stay here as not many people stay here and its not too big so you don't feel like a number.

Room Tip: Request for a room on a higher floor and with a city view
