This is my third stay here which says something.

I travel alone on business. the rooms are small but adequate for me alone. The rooms in the block next to the second swimming pool.. 14 + tend to be better than those in other blocks having a wardrobe rather than just hanging rail.

The staff are extremely helpful... more so thatn the intercontinental where i have stayed in the past.

I would say for a business trip,,.....great!

Romaintic holiday, you could proably do better

I've stayed at the Holiday Inn in Nairobi many times and I have always enjoyed my stay. Some times I stay as long as two weeks at a time and it has a homey feel, much better than the Intercon or Serena. Spurs Steak House is attached and the food is pretty good, but after a couple of days I get tired of the same menu. The good thing about the Holiday Inn is that there are other restaurants close so I had some variety. I am returning next month for another two week stay. The staff is helpful and friendly and with the Westlands Mall a couple of blocks away there are places to shop, buy groceries and coffee shops to sit and people watch,

Negatives first. My room was a little basic, and the bathroom even more so; but I wasn't in Nairobi to spend time in my room. The hotel has a warm, colonial feel to it. It is quite large but spread over a extensive site. Security is taken seriously, which is reassuring. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. The poolside eating area is great, particualry at breakfast time, when there is an impressive spread. I found the staff very obliging, particulary Soloman, the deputy manager. The Wednesday night cocktail party is a great idea, when everybody is issued with a national flag and encouraged to mingle. I liked this place and if I get the opportunity, I will use it again.

The hotel has a lovely colonial feel to it. The rooms are spacious and the pool large. The gym is adequate. There are two restaurants a Spur with bar and a poolside area. Both were fine. The bathroom could do with a makeover; the shower was around 30 years old as was the toilet seat.
Staff were friendly and attentive.

I usually stay elsewhere when in Nairobi for business, but I was booked into the Holiday Inn by a travel agent. Surprisingly comfortable and very good breakfast. Nairobi is expensive (for decent accommodations) and the Holiday Inn has lovely grounds and was clean and convenient. I have no hesitation recommending it.
