Well the hotel was nice and so far had no bad experience in it. Room was clean and not too small, bathroom was clean too, had bath tub, and shower, we got complimentary internet which is usually not, they have no wifi in room just cable. You can see the room in my pics. Staff was helpful and friendly, we got lots of help how to get around city and country too.

One of the finest hotels I have stayed at.

Professional and helpful staff, a very nice room with a luxurious bed (and a choice of pillow types), iPod/iPhone docking station and wi-fi, an excellent gym and a beautiful casual dining restaurant.

Every component of this hotel exudes quality.

During the month of July, I had the priviledge of staying a few days at a time on two separate instances at the Crowne Plaza Nairobi. My comments simply put would be that Crowne Plaza Nairobi has put into practice the Kenya Karibu from the time you step of the taxi into the hotel. The staff learns quick of your preferences and all amenities from the room to the restaurants and the gym are what one would expect from a 5 star facility.

I am certain as the hotel matures the service levels will be upheld.

Room Tip: The rooms are well equiped including free access to the internet with good speeds.

Stayed @ CP Nairobi for 2 nights last week. Great business hotel, spacious rooms, conveniently located to various intl companies. Tried the restaurant for b/fast as it was included in the room rates. Was ok, but needed more variety especially for vegetarians. Had pizza and dinner in the bar/lounge. Was good. Room was neat and clean, however the bathroom had smell, but I think its more from the weather dampness rather than anything else.
Had a late flight and asked for possibility for late checkout. Their manager, Steven was very helpful and as the hotel wasnt full, let me keep the room till 7pm.
Overall service was excellent, staff helpful.

Service & Staff were excellent - our flight got cancelled and rescheduled a day later & I had already pre-paid my stay for crowne plaza...but the hotel staff - GM Mr. Lorenzo was most kind in shifting my dates without any hassle. The front desk person in the night shift was also extremely good and helpful.
We got upgraded to the Club room - It was spacious, well done interiors, most comfortable bed and spacious bathroom with separate tub & shower.
Drawbacks - very expensive room service menu. We went to their cafe and got a strawberry dessert - which was stale. We paid about 450-500 KES for it... and apart from not being fresh it was not even the least appealing to your taste-buds. It only looked good to the eyes. The saving grace was the restaurant 'gazebo' opposite the hotel - No great food but better and cheaper than the hotel.
Location - a bit far off from city centre and a cab is needed. But the hotel provides the same or there are other cabs outside the hotel gate which are a bit cheaper too.
But overall a very recommended hotel & a must stay in Nairobi as most other hotels have outdated interiors. The staff handled my queries extremely well and made it a pleasure to stay there.

Room Tip: The Club room was excellent

The hotel service is high standard. Very clean hotel rooms with free internet access. The lounge, bar and restaurants are very nice to meet colleagues and friends.

It is located away from the noisy and crowded city center. Easy and fast access from the airport.

I would stay here again, anytime.

Room Tip: Nice and spacious. good working desk
