We stayed at the Palacina on arrival and on departure for our 2 week &Beyond glamping holiday in Kenya and Tanzania to witness the mass migration of the wilderbeest. Our trip was fully planned by Rhino Africa from Capetown who made all the recommendations for where to stay. The hotel in Nairobi is situated in a beautiful suburb near the... More

We are the governmental agency and we needed the facinated conference room for 60 officials and excellent service. After the conference, the guests were satisfied at the lunch in the beautiful green garden. It was perfect and smooth, all staff were very kind, and especially we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the Manager Ms.Elvira! We recommend this... More

I always get great service at the Palacina when I come for business. The place is spacious and clean, and most importantly, the staff is polite and friendly. Bildad is the best manager! I love just chatting with him and the staff, who are really helpful as well. This is the only place I stay at when I'm in Nairobi... More

We loved Palacina! Perfect little boutique hotel with high standards. An oasis of calm in hectic Nairobi. Enjoyed cocktails and a nice dinner in the bar and restaurant. Excellent breakfast and service!

We stayed for one night on our honeymoon between Safari in Maasai Mara and the Seychelles. They gave us a really wonderful suite which was very luxurious. The service was excellent. It's quite close to the airport but the traffic in Nairobi is terrible so ensure you leave enough time.

We stayed here on our first night in Nairobi and arrived around midnight from a very long flight. We were greeted with a fresh meal and very friendly staff. They got us settled into our wonderful suite and served us a delicious breakfast the next morning. Highly recommend!!!

Spent 3 nights at the Palacina suites and enjoyed the peaceful oasis close to central Nairobi. Really nice suites with masses of room. I stayed in one of the newer buildings and was very impressed with the modern furnishings yet the influence of Africa is still present. The staff cannot do enough to assist, from the efficient airport transfer service,... More
