My husband and I were schedule for Safari and a little work in Kenya and I began researching accomadations in Nairobi. While there were many options to choose from, the Crowne Plaza stood out because of it's amenities (free internet, fitness center, pool, etc) and because of the price. Nairobi is an expensive city but the Crowne Plaza, with advanced purchase, gives you an excellent stay. The room was exceptional and the bed, luxurious. The hotel itself is immaculate. One of the outstanding features of this hotel is the staff - they will go to any length to please you. During your stay, make sure to look up Evans (he wears a top hat at the front door) and Grace who does check in - they will make you feel at home.

Only one caution, taxi's are expensive at the hotel but they are very safe.

Room Tip: We had a superior double and couldn't have been happier. Spacious, easy to work in, and great am...

We brought a group of 20 people to Nairobi for a conference for 7 days and everyone found it one of the best hotel experiences in ages. Staff were friendly, competent, and well organized. Hotel was beautiful, spotlessly clean, and ideally located close to downtown, but in a quiet area. Rooms were excellent--very comfortable beds, big modern bathrooms, flatscreen TVs, free and fast wireless internet, complimentary water bottles replenished daily, etc. Breakfast buffet was one of the best I've seen and I travel quite a bit and the fitness center was at a level of an actual gym you would pay to go to.

I stayed here for a week. The hotel is very good or excellent. Great customer care and nice rooms. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was excellent. The hotel meals were always on time. The lunch time for our conference was 12.30pm and the food was always ready. The internet speed is good and everywhere! The rooms were always always clean! Keep it up

I stayed here on two occasions over a period of two weeks while in Kenya on business. Each time, I was given a complimentary upgrade to the Club level. The hotel is beautiful and spotlessly clean. My room was extremely comfortable. The bed was exquisite. Nice choice of pillows and great linens. Bathroom is a very nice size, and the shower had the perfect amount of water pressure. The buffet in the Baraza restaurant was delicious. Staff friendly and helpful. When I have occasion to return to Nairobi this is the only hotel I will be staying it.

Room Tip: try to get a room on the back side of the hotel (facing the soccer field). It is quieter on that si...

We stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon and we got a free upgrade to the Presidential Suite. It was out of this world. The hotel had a lovely bouquet of flowers and bottle of wine in our suite. The suite was also covered in little petals. We got room service which was excellent. Our only complaint was we did'nt have more time to experience the hotel as we had an early morning flight departure.

We highly recommend this hotel to all. Thanks once again to the hotel for our upgrade

An excellent international hotel in the Upper Hill district. No hesitation in recommending. Two king size beds, free wifi, free bottled water, reasonably priced mini bar, good restaurant, hotel bar is reasonably priced however they will try to sell you double shots, free nuts/crisps with drinks, breakfast is excellent with a made to order egg bar, fresh orange juice!

Room Tip: All rooms are the same - area is quiet.
