Needs a major renovation. The staff are incompetent at best. My safe kept getting locked and not opening. Needed to change rooms thrice. No apologies. Food was horrible. The bar looked worse. The crowd was even worse. The reception except one chap couldn't care less. The manager it seems is afraid of the staff and refuses to correct them when... More

Great disappointment. The staff to begin with, most that is, have no grasp of the concept of customer care. I am even inclined to think this place has some racial discrimination. I heard it n only believed it when I experienced it. Yeah n al the other noticeable stuff culminating to an old, run down hotel. The only thing I... More

The hotel was within a short taxi ride from Jomo Kenyatta airport. It was clean, the staff were pleasant and very helpful. I was on the 8th floor and the view from the hotel window was spectacular in the heart of the business district/centre of Nairobi,very close to the main offices like UN, etc

The service is good and staff friendly but the hotel needs refurbishment, especially the bathrooms. Food is also not great. Location is fantastic, especially for business. Cost of rooms is reasonable but food is very exoensive. Overall, hotel is OK

The hotel is very dated, smells funny, and has terrible internet access. The internet is extremely flaky and very expensive (about $25 per day). The breakfast is tasty but not a good value ($15 for a continental breakfast). The rooms are small and dated as well.

Never use the HIlton Nairobi - Kenya. They charge you US$320.00 - standard room - for a old hotel with zero free facilities (no wi-fi, no breakfast, no transfer) I have stayed there twice and will never return. Not even drive past the hotel in case i get charged for that too. Bye bye Hilton Nairobi

A real disappointment having stayed at this and other hiltons for some time. A frequent traveller to Kenya and other Africa destinations...this hotel was a nightmare. A mess up (theirs) over the booking coupled with a 'take it or leave it' attitude trying to turn a quoted and booked rate into the rack rate. Room given was noisy, grubby, bathroom... More

The staff at the Hilton in Nairobi are helpful and always smiling. You truly feel welcome and appreciated right from the door. I loved the coffee plus the extra large and spacious washroom :-) It might be a bit in the bummer in that its right in the middle of the city sao the environment is a bit overractive.
