A wonderful tourist attraction in the guise of a really good conference centre. The venue hosts an incredible statue of the legendary Jomo Kenyatta in the entrance plaza. A visit to the 30th floor of the centre is an absolutely unmissable stop for any visit to Nairobi. The endless 360 degree view is incomparable.

Do want to see Nairobi from east to west from north to the south??? Then here us the best place with no struggle for a view. On the 28th floor there is a helipad open to the public and visitors for a small few and the gift at the top is an amazing panoramic view of the city to its... More

To summarize. It's not all that. Compared with other heritage sites around Kenya there is not much to it. The old 70's style architecture makes it stand out as a concrete jungle. No building was 'allowed' to be taller than it so it literally stunted the city. As far as tall building go? It is supremely unimpressive. Even the rooftop,... More

It makes easy for the exhibitors and the visitors to visit this place as being in the centre of the city, the other exhibition centre are far away located and difficult to reach for.

This is not one of the well-advertised or organized tourist site. My colleague and I had to ask lots of questions to find out how to get to the top of KICC. We were charged Ksh400 as foreigners after some bargaining, after which we were shown where to catch a surprisingly fast lift to the 25th floor. From there on... More

Participants from around the world experience a spectacular welcome and start of the 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Conference! We ate in style from a wide variety of foods and enjoyed a night of Kenyan hospitality and entertainment! An excellent experience!

The KICC is really good to avoid and just climb up the helipad and look at Nairobi. The entrance ticket is 400shillings (4usd) and you get a guide who explains to you the many parts of the city. It is really nice to see the congested city from up, to turn off the noise and just admire the green of... More

if you are afraid of heights then you better go to this, because the 26 story building is safe and brilliant to enjoy a glimpse of nairobi from a distance. I loved the pictures from up there, i'm sure its worth the 250 bob i paid.

I've been there for an International conference. The auditorium is nice, but for sure it need an upgrade to a higher international standard. Lots of equipment (to speak from the audience) didn't work, many chairs were just ready for the dump, the auditorium need some painting (it is too dark and dorsn't look fresh) etc. Meeting rooms for workshops were...
