Being within town, they have nice and affordable rooms. The staff are also very welcoming. They need to work on their dinner menu though. Something about it which is beyond their control is the own noise, though at Night its minimal.

A hotel which is really good for an overnight stay only. Nothing else. If you will be out during (dinner) night time, just be careful on the street. LEAVE your VALUABLES at the hotel. Be safe always. :)

I have visited the clarion a couple of times over a period of 2 years now.I cannot remember a single day i ordered any food i enjoyed apart from their coffee.You may wonder what kept me going back ; their ambiance is great and it's conveniently located for business meetings within the Nairobi CBD.

The Clarion Hotel is situated at the end of Moi Avenue street, ideally a good location on the quiet side of town. A calm Sunday evening, expected serenity being a Sunday. I check in and there is a church service still taking place at 7pm. So much for peace and quiet. One lift was operational (beginning to think of getting... More

It's located at the city Centre. Rooms are cosy, there's free Wi-Fi and access to the gym, the buffet is okay nothing special, there's steam sauna and Mani pedi's at a reasonable fee as well as massage services. Plenty of clubs if you like dancing,restaurants. Security is guaranteed as the police station is about 10minutes away (walking distance). Best part... More

Just happened to be in Town for a day before I travelled and I decided to look up hotels around town. Luckily Clarion popped up first and I decided to give it a shot. It's in a decend spot in town but right in the middle. Parking is okay. When I walked in, there were a bunch of nice receptionists.... More

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...
