“Good Hotel in City Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Meridian is a good hotel within walking distance from the KICC. It's been recently renovated. The area tends to become rather lonely at night because it is in the business area so most shops & offices closed down.

The hotel was renovated recently from what I saw and renovation work is ongoing in some floors. You can't beat the location, excellent location and walking distance to the City Centre, Nairobi University and many other hotels nearby.

Floors were dirty in the room which I stayed. I had to ask for a foot mat, which they did not have but I asked them for a floor towel used in the washroom. Every time I walked on the floor, I got my feet dirty. The washroom was clean, towels clean.

I worked at the Gym which is a very basic gym, no Dumbbells, no Barbell. A home gym is available. A swimming pool is also there.

Taxis are easily available nearby. All Staff were courteous and helpful.

Overall, if you are looking for a hotel in a good location in the city this hotel is recommended.

I stayed only one night in this hotel in March 2015 with my mother. The room was a spacious size, with a modern bathroom, a kettle to make tea and coffee, tv with a decent variety of channels, a properly working wi-fi and extremely comfortable beds. I pass through Nairobi a lot, but until now I never stayed in this hotel, but from now on, I do consider it as a nice option, especially when I need to be in and around downtown area. The hotel staff were very courteous, they immediately changed our room when I realized that the first one they assigned to us was a smoking room. They were also nice to help us have a breakfast very early (before the breakfast start time) as our flight was early in the morning.
Overall it's a good place for its worth!

When comparing Nairobi Hotel prices, this hotel is great.

The bed is the best I've slept on, everything is very clean and well maintained, the restaurant has truly delicious food (although quite pricey by Kenyan standards).

We ordered a taxi through the hotel a couple of times and the drivers were reasonable prices and knowledgeable about Nairobi.

Wifi was reliable and fast, Showers were hot and had good pressure. If you need to do Laundry, it's really expensive so I suggest finding an alternative but aside from the expensive extras, this hotel is great for us.

We will be back

We stayed in this resort for 03 nights & had an amazing time. The staff & service provided to us was very good. Had dinner at Rendezvous an Indian food and Nyama Choma was awesome. Thanks to Chef Sanjay who cooked good Indian food for us and Chef Naveen for being very informative and helpful. Although the renovation is on, but the hotel is nice & definitely will become better...
