Sentrim Nairobi Boulevard Hotel
Ranked #75 of 167 Hotels in Nairobi
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We had to stay here for one night as we were joining a G Adventures tour from the Hotel the next morning. We didn't expect it to be the Hilton and it wasn't. However it was as good as we expected it to be. The pool was great which we made use of. The rooms were clean and tidy so we got a decent nights sleep which was all we needed.

We had to stay at the Boulevard because we were joining a tour that started from there. The place and the location was good. Clean and good facilities. Definitely overpriced if you pay the 210$ per night that would be the official cost, just ok if you pay the 110$ that we paid on Expedia.

The Sentrim Boulevard is close to the National Museum, University of Nairobi and the Kenya National Theatre. It's quite centrally located, yet quiet and peaceful. After the safari, we found the overall ambience of the hotel was one of cleanliness and comfort. The have a nice outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and a business centre. Restaurant serves good food (breakfast was complimentary), and a bar. They have a gift shop - picked a nice cotton shirt from there - just what I was looking for but couldn't find elsewhere. The rooms are air-conditioned, have TVs with free movie channels, have mini-bars and safes. There's also a writing desk and direct dial telephones. Complimentary toiletries in bathrooms which are clean, with a bidet and hair-dryers an fresh towels. Will definitely stay there on my next visit to Nairobi.

Room Tip: We took a room facing the lawns - very peaceful.

A decent hotel - friendly service, reasonable location, good food and a pool. It's no luxury resort, but after a rough safari in the Mara it feels luxurious. The shower is amazing - high pressure and great hot water.

I notice a lot of difference between my first trip in September 2013 and now in February 2014. The rooms are well maintained. You will find white towels and bed sheets. The washrooms are old fashioned but kept clean and tidy. The premise is big and best place for a morning walk unlike the hotels located inside the city center. The internet worked very well and was helpful for my Skype call with my boss in USA. On the whole i liked this place may be it is not as expensive as other hotels in the city center that offers the same quality for high price. I am sure you will like this place.

Room Tip: I stayed on the floor one. My room was facing the garden and close to the staircase. It was quiet. I...

We stayed at Sentrim Boulevard on the first and last nights of our Nomad Masaai Mara and Gorilla Tour. On arrival we were greeted with huge smiles, asked where we were from and how our flights were.
We had a twin room on the ground floor with a door leading onto gorgeous gardens that included benches and bird feeders to add to our enjoyment of being outdoors.

We went for a late afternoon swim in the large pool, and within 2 minutes of hitting the water, a lady appeared and moved sun-loungers and towels to where we had put our things.
When we had finished swimming a waiter appeared and brought us coffee.
Supper of steak, chips and veg was served outside, delicious, simple and value for money.

Our room was spotless, comfortable and the overhead fan provided adequate cooling for the room.
The look and feel of the hotel is reminiscent of Cape Town in the 1970's. Utterly charming. The service was good, old fashioned "nothing is too much trouble" and all done with a smile.

We needed assistance with the TV and the ceiling fan and this was provided promptly and efficiently, and included a friendly chat.

The bathroom was large and spotlessly clean, and the shower had the right pressure, and un-interupted hot water to wash of the grime and weariness of long haul air travel.

Breakfast offered a vast array of hot and cold choices, and when we requested scrambled eggs they were brought to our table within a few minutes of ordering.

The reception staff welcomed us back after 14 days on the road, with smiles and hugs! Wow!

They were very helpful in offering advice and assistance regarding walking around in the vicinity, prices we should pay for a taxi and arranging transport to the airport.

I would definitely stay there again. A good experience all round.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are very quiet, great for smokers as there is a door from your room leading onto...

The hotel was musty and smelly. there wasn't any air conditioning, They tried to put three people in a very small room with very small beds. After 4 hours of negotiating the manager finally split us into two rooms that were extremely hot. This was part of a tour , but we were promised first class accommodations. Check with your travel guide before committing.

Room Tip: Use Stanley Serova
