This hotel has very friendly staff, very nice environment, extremely accommodating. They negotiated with me on their typical rate by almost 40%. Rooms are good for Kenya. Hot "rainfall showerhead" showers, good beds. No AC. The one and only downfall is a pretty big one, and it is mostly not their fault, it's just being in the location of the... More

We did not stay at the hotel however I wish that we had. We visited the bar in search of cold beers as the hotel across the road were we were staying did not have any chilled beers. The security guy welcomed us and escorted us to the bar. The bar staff greeted us, the bar area is very comfortable... More

The hotel is at the CBD which is a plus. The food was decent, nothing fancy to write home about. Breakfast was your usual English breakfast. However one has to ask for bacon from the kitchen. Which is time wasting. The room is standard and I suppose one should factor in traffic noise considering the location of the hotel. Water... More

A successful hotel??? Many people come here?? Oh please. Don't make me laugh. Very tiny television sets, dirty rooms (dust everywhere), no music, no table ketchup, no napkins, no hot rooms, no pizza's, no beef, no nothing, and tourist camera's are not allowed (they ask you to put them out when you try to record some of these facts); this...

The hotel is very well located, close to the city center and to other bars and restaurants. Otherwise, anything but a 4 starts hotel. The furniture was broken, the cleaning was not well done. Bathroom door broken and bulbs broken that were partially fixed only after our second request. The breakfast was very poor also - a small variety of... More

Stayed there for two weeks and enjoyed how the hotel staff were very helpful throughout my stay.. Of course the food was very good considering that im not really into their cousines but overall they really know how to treat a customer with a smile.

This hotel is centrally located in CBD Nairobi. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The security is also reliable. The conference rooms facility is a plus for small and medium size gatherings or corporate meets.

The room i stayed in was clean and well maintained. Dinner at the restaurant was simply spectacular. The food was so delicious that i had to... More

My group normally meets at the clarion hotel weekly. The conference rooms are of a wide variety i.e. from a small executive meeting to a large number (e.g. a church can fit). The setup is normally customized to our requirements and there is always a dedicated staff to endure you are comfortable.
