The top floor provides very nice view of Nairobi city. You can visit Masai market which is close to this place. Ticket fee is around USD 2 per person to go to the top.

we were here for a conference and the place although old is very well mantained. its right next to the supreme court of kenya and also has a wonderful park right next to it. most government and parliament offices are a stones throw away from this building. a good touristy spot for those who have some time from work.

KICC is spacious for meetings, exhibitions and conferences. The tower at the top revolves to give a 360 degree panoramic view of the surroundings. There is a chinese restaurant on the side. As there are several business aids. Plan to book this venue for exhibitions, meetings, and conference. Numbers are not a problem.

The centre is too overcrowded in a very congested area of the Nairobi's downtown area. It is not advisable to go there for eating if you don't have a business conference or an important meeting.

You can build an impressive building, but if you are not going to maintain it, it is not going to be impressive for long.

Take the elevator up to the 26th floor and walk the final few stair wells to reach the top of the KICC. The top of the building itself is not impressive but the view (provided you go when the weather/haze isn't bad) is excellent and gives a great overview of the city.
