I spent a night in this hotel in September 2015. The hotel is in a quiet side of Nairobi, although a few paces down Moi Avenue there are many bars and clubs that open through the night. The rooms are rather cheap given their good quality. Although it is not a luxury hotel, I found it quite comfortable. I spent... More

No hairdryer, no casino, no room service, no disco n no air-conditioning (leave alone a fan).. The rooms are small but clean.. They use a restaurant next door for... More

If you are completely first timer in Nairobi this is the kind of place to stay. I could easily access the city amenities at ease and get directions very conveniently. Nakumatt, safaricom, village market, uhuru Park etc are just the second road. Talk of a hot location this is the place. Other faults, as far as I'm concerned, are easily... More

We stayed here because it was very convenient for the bus to Arusha. There are at least three bus companies departing daily from outside the hotel early in the morning. The hotel staff were friendly and pleasant. The single rooms are a reasonable size and clean. The plumbing in the bathroom is a bit Heath-Robinson with a dangerous-looking electric water... More

We spent there one night in March. The hotel looks much better in the inside than from the outside. The room was small, but it was clean. The bed was big and comfortable with clean sheets. The bathroom was very small, rather clean (although needs some renovation) with plastic sliding doors. Sometimes I was afraid it can fall off. The... More

I got this place, while all other accommodations in the city centre were fully booked. The location in the city centre, near Nakumatt Life Style which is a 24 hour shopping centre, with a pharmacy, jewellery shop, banks, coffee shops. is ideal for a solo traveller, as you can get time to move around in a secure environment. The rooms... More

The staff at Parkside Hotel are never smiling and they always look weird at you like something is wrong. They are not helpful at all and it seems like they are just here to earn money and are not thinking about their costumers at all. They don't say 'Hello' when you arrive and they don't say 'Goodbye' when you leave.... More

A great location near a 24 hour shopping centre, ATMs, banks, coffee shops and eateries and the market. The rooms were clean and the water hot (eventually). Very basic accomodation yet perfect for a night or 2 before heading off on safari

I've stayed here many times because it had been safe, convenient, and clean. Never particularly friendly or service oriented. But now, the mold growing on the shower walls and the increased prices has pushed me to the limit. Time to find a better place with value and cleanliness. Friday nights are very noisy. Ear plugs, Ambien, etc. are essential.
