As a frequent traveler to Kenya (I work for a NGO and travel to Kenya several times a year), I am always on the lookout of good mid-range hotels in Nairobi. Hotels in Nairobi tend to either be cheap and extremely basic, or very nice, but overpriced. The Best Western Premier might just be the first nice hotel in Nairobi that is a good value. I booked my room ahead of time online and got a rate of $130 plus tax - not bad considering older "luxury" hotels in Nairobi can cost of $300 a night. The hotel looks very new - I think it only opened several months ago. It has all of the important amenities for a business traveler: comfy bed, hot shower, fast internet, and a great breakfast spread. In addition, the hotel has an excellent gym with a beautiful view over the city and a rooftop swimming pool and bar. Service was excellent and the location of the hotel is conveniently located in the Hurlingham area of the city.
The only faults I could find with the Best Western Premier was the quality of the food at the restaurant - it was not bad, but tended to be fairly bland. The hotel's decor was modern and high quality, but lacked the character that you might find at an older hotel.
The Best Western Premier is certainly a great addition to the Nairobi hotel scene, and as long as they keep their prices reasonable, it will be my base in Nairobi for years to come!
