“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

I had opted for the Executive Studio and was lucky to be upgraded to their penthouse suite. Not only was it huge in size but it boasted of a stunning view!

Room had excellent furnishings with a shower and tub. WIFI was fast and free - one of the main reasons I chose this place.

The Gym is well equipped and the Pizzas at the restaurant were a delight.

This was a lovely stay in the studio room. Didn't expect the breakfast to be in such a lovely lounge. Spent the day shopping in Nairobi then got a chance to experience authentic italian food at the hotel restaurant.

Room cleanliness was excellent. Staff always helped clean up, provide any extra fans, insect repellants and friendly tour advise. Its a great place for a first timer in Nairobi with quick access to taxi's and the hotel"s airport pick up.

Well whats not to like about the hotel. Its in the middle of 4 malls each within a km at the max. Its neat , clean and extremely affordable. Yes it may not be the glitziest hotel you are gonna stay in but if you are looking for a safe , clean , cheap and nice hotel with free wifi and good breakfast at a great location this one is ideal for you. And if you are an Indian like me you would love the food served in the restaurant. Its vegetarian but delicious.Would definately recommend it!

I was very pleased with the location of the hotel i.e. safe, very close to a shopping mall and restaurants. The service was great, the staff were very welcoming and homely. I particularly enjoyed the amenities at the hotel i.e. a fully equipped gym with a sauna on-site. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and will be back soon.

I was very impressed with the quality of the customer service at Progressive Park Hotel, as they would always attend to my needs and answer any queries promptly. The location of this hotel is second to none in Nairobi, next to multiple shops, boutiques, cafes and a large mall. The staff are very friendly and polite and security is not a concern. There is also the added bonus of a gym and sauna on-site, making life even more relaxing. The morning breakfast caters for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians and offers a healthy choice of food. All in all, I would personally recommend Progressive Park Hotel to friends without a second thought. Thank you for your hospitality!

This is hotel is about practicalities and not luxuries. It is suited for the asian hub that is westlands, and thus most clients needs. Most floors have free wifi (unless you stay in the 3rd floor) which is a bonus. The reception staff are efficient and prompt in replying to emails and the security staff are friendly.

Many rooms dont have A/C which can mean being hot and stuffy. The blinds are thin which means if you are in an east facing room there is no prospect of a late wake up.

The rooms are spacious and clean. There is free supply of drinking water. There is free tea/coffee making facilities. There are places to eat and few shopping malls nearby. There is a decent indian breakfast.

Room Tip: 2nd floor or lower if you want wifi. Get a west facing room if you want a late wake up

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review from your latest stay with us. I am glad to read that you enjoyed yourself.

I would like to point out that we do have the option of Studio Rooms (with Fans) or Executive Studio Rooms (with AC). The weather in Nairobi is generally quite pleasant hence the use of the AC is not necessary to most of our clients.

I have noted your remarks on the curtains which I have shared with our Management team.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Progressive Park

This hotel is outside the CBD area. One mall s in front. Nothing else. Its more like an aprtment, not a regular hotel. Service is not so good. Reception staff seems to be out of sorts. Even after paying the rent again aksed for payment. Wasted lot of time. This is terrible.

Room Tip: Stay in new wing. little better then old wing.

Thank your for the feedback received regarding your stay at our hotel recently. I was disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us.

As many reviews have pointed out our Location, although away from the CBD, is quite prime and more importantly very secure.

I have noted with concern your remarks regarding the reception asking for payment twice and assure you that necessary corrective measures shall be taken up. I sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused as a result.

We sincerely hope you will give us another opportunity so we can show you why your disappointment on your last visit was an isolated case.
