The Panari Hotel, most probably the nearest good hotel from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. For Nairobi, staying near the airport is not an option but a must, because during office hours if you really need to board a flight, you need to satrt at least 3 to 4 hrs to travel 25 kilometers within the city. You will face huge jame on every crossing of roads. Hence Panari is locationally advantageous as you need not to cross any major crossing to reach to the airport.
The second good thing about Panari is it is located along with a big shopping complex (owned by the same group) and you can get good food courts, movie theatre, pharmacy, wild life tour operators under the same roof.
Now lets come to the hotel quality. Its good and very basic. The rooms are airy, bright and have good view of the Mombasa Nairobi Highway. The restaurant is pretty big and offers good spread of continental and oriental cuisine. The gym is very well equipped though little cramped. The bar is attached to the reception, spacious and offers good variety of drinks and also live music.
The only drawback of the hotel is it is located little away from the main city, to reach to the city centre you need to board a taxi. But keeping in mind the traffic jam, one would prefer to stay near to the airport, especially when he needs to catch an early morning flight. Overall a good value for money for convenience.
