Our experience at Sankara Hotel was excellent! We were very impressed by the attention to detail of the hotel and restaurant staff. They took the time and made the effort to place roses, rose petals, fruit, wine, fresh chocolate-covered strawberries, and truffles, among other things, into our room. The table at the restaurant was also all decked out and the...

Hotel Located in Westlands not so far from the city business district. Located right next to the Sarit Centre shopping mall. Wonderful interior design, the rooms are clean and spacious. They have a rooftop pool and bar which brings out a nice ambience in the evening. Cant complain about the food, loved the buffet breakfast. Would definitely be back.

This hotel is located in Westlands; lots of parking and tight security. Entry / exit from the parking lot is a little underwhelming because of the convoluted route. Security and wait staff extremely helpful and attentive

On the surface the Sankara is very nice - the rooms are comfortable and the French press and real coffee in the rooms are a nice touch. However, when when we checked out we were charges a higher rate than what we were quoted when booking the room. When we tried to dispute the rate we were told that we...

Had an excellent stay at this modern hotel in Nairobi. I particularly loved the design of the common spaces and restaurants. My Superior Room was great - bright and spacious, with a large bathroom. Not as sleek as the rest of the hotel, in my opinion, but still very nice and comfortable. One of the best features of Sankara is...

A pleasant stay at the Sankara hotel. Excellent customer service, modern fixtures and good location. Helpful staff, notably Monica from the front desk. Highly recommended. Home away home. I will definitely return.

I chose Sanaka mainly because of its security. The receptionist was welcoming and the check-in was fairly quick. However, the bell boy or whoever the person taking my bags to the room was, seemed unhappy to be taking them and seemed unhappy with the amount I had tipped him. He kept looking at me and then at the money and...

An upmarket Lounge with fantastic views of Westlands Nairobi. The ambience is magnificent with a relaxing vibe and friendly staff. The open architectural design adds to the experience and overall comfort.

We stayed on a family trip and would really recommend it. The staff were lovely and the breakfasts, and other meals, were excellent. They were very accommodating of people with specific dietary requirements. The pool is heated and in a brilliant location on the top floor. The gym is also very good. The only issue we had was with loud...
