The wow factor here was the rooms, very large always clean fitted with all essentials from showera to bath tabs desk area e.t.c our room was facing the sarit centre mall so we would just sit by the window at night with all the lights outside and have a romantic glass of wine.
The staff is always smiling and very helpful.

The food was great but a bit pricey so most nights we opted to eat out our favourite spot being havanna restaurant 5 minutes walk where they have amazing pork ribs i have ever eaten in the whole world they were soft and sinfully sweet we ate there everyday....i coul go on and on about my baby pork ribs
Sankara is amazing and the fact that it is in westlands makes it more interesting as night runners like us we had plenty of bars with good music a few minutes from restaurant.

I would reccomend this hotel to everyone

Room Tip: stayed in room 5307 very quiet and sunny

I loved this hotel. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. From the rooms to the restaurants on the first floor to the rooftop pool to the spa. I wish all hotels were this amazing.

Rooms are large and fully fitted out with everything you can imagine. Power shower and separate bath, large king beds and cozy desk area. I really enjoyed the gym - the equipment faces out a window with a great view - you can watch traffic fly by while using the treadmill.

I actually wrote a comment card for a member of the front desk staff - and I rarely do this. But I had an issue with needing to find contact solution (not the easiest thing) and she fixed it instantly. Next morning she gave me a late checkout (just a few hours, I was desperate.) It's the little things that will get you, she topped off a great visit and I'm looking forward to coming back.

I had a great stay here on business. New hotel. Superb staff. Comfortable beds. Very spacious rooms. Good location close to Sarit shopping centre. Food in hotel good but can be a bit pricey. Nice Indian restaurant within safe walking distance.

We recently stayed here-and absolutely loved it. It has a fresh modern feel with an African chic decor. It is about a 20 min ride from the international airport (without traffic) in the westlands area of nairobi. We got the deluxe room online and it was pretty spacious. The rooms are decorated really nice.Beds super comfortable, clean bathrooms. The hotel is 7 stories-the rooftop pool is a nice place to unwind and grab a drink. We were there over a weekend and many locals came in the evenings-as it turns into a lounge with a DJ. They do have free wifi. We ate a buffet breakfast which was so well worth it. Fresh breads , pastries, juices, fruits, eggs and crepes galore. The staff is very professional and attentive.

We had an excellent stay at the Nairobi Sankara Hotel.
The service and the support in the logistic of our workshop were perfect!
The staff provides impeccable service and the hotel is equipped with a gym and a swimming pool on its roof. The hotel got a large choice of dishes: international buffet, chinese restaurant, wine bar...
We really recommand you this hotel.
