The hotel offers great service in accordance with its 3.5-star rating. Friendly and very helpful staff rate at least one star higher. My only complaint is the high noise level at night, probably due to lack of soundproofing in some rooms. A wonderful place to stay.

We have organised two conferences in the beginning of July in Sarova Panafric hotel. The staff was great, very helpful, friendly and flexible.

We had external company installing interpretation... More

The staff are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent with a lot of variety. We asked the receptionist to keep our bags for the day while we tour around, and they gladly and securely kept our bags. The room are clean and has nice views.

We arrived late in Nairobi after our flight from the UK. The hotel has a lovely ambience with great "holiday" music and cocktails in the hotel restaurant. We had to book 2 rooms as a family of 4, which was a shame because we tend to book family rooms wherever possible. A great stay though and would recommend.

While you have to appreciate the 60's feel in the architecture of the Sarova Panafric, I'm not sure if the buildings can be considered as beautiful. However, it's the inside that matters. We arrived in the middle of the night at JKIA, and were met punctually by a Sarova Panafric driver.The check in (it was 4 am) went smoothly and... More

Got in close to midnight and left for Masai Mara safari at 7 a.m. next morning, so did not avail of most services. Okay, but nothing special. Breakfast did start early so we did get to enjoy and was decent. Service was good.

At one time they had only prepared the dobleroom for one person (with only towels and stuff for one person). We had to kontact the staff several times to... More

Only stayed a night on my way to the coast but found it really friendly and great for a stop over. Really good breakfast and the most delicious decaf coffee! Great staff, clean rooms, warm welcome, all good!
