I stayed here on my first night in Eastern Africa. We needed a 16 hour layover and decided to take a hotel for the night. This was fairly close to the airport and offered a very nice breakfast buffet as part of the room rate. The room also offered decent cable television and free Wi-Fi which was very quick given normal African standards. I would most certainly stay here again in the future.

We have stayed at Meridian many times over the years. The food is well prepared, nicely presented and delicious. We are now delighted to see throughout the hotel that it is renovated very nicely. The rooms are clean and comfortable with modern bathrooms. The safaris arranged through the hotel have been delightful and safe -- we never had to worry. Staff throughout the hotel have been welcoming, gracious, accommodating, and attentive to our needs including arranging taxis and placing phone calls. This applies to housekeeping, food service, porters, security, and reception, and is actively facilitated by management and the owners, who are much involved in daily operations.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2014

My stay at the Meridian Court Hotel in October surpassed my expectations right from the start. I arrived earlier than intended but the staff happily allowed me to check in nonetheless. The room I was given was tastefully furnished and had all amenities including a mini-fridge and safe. I had booked a superior room which came with climate control which was definitely a plus. The hotel also has free wifi access. The only disappointment was the breakfast which was greatly lacking compared to other hotels that I have stayed at in the past. Despite being a 3 star hotel, Meridian's services approach those of a 4 star hotel. The only improvement needed is in their food category. I would surely recommend this hotel to business travelers who need a centrally located hotel to stay in while in Nairobi.

It was my first visit to Nairobi. It was nice staying at this hotel. The staff was very much co-operative in everything. Location was good. Used to pay KSH 300-500 to Taxi to go most of the places. There are always plenty of taxi's standing outside hotel. The best part was Jamia Mosque was just 5-7 mins walk distance.
They need to do some addition should make a Concierge / Help desk with a guidance on places a person can go after 6pm. For foreigner this area is not good to walk after its dark.

Overall had a good experience will stay again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Just take care of your pockets and do not smoke when on streets.
