“Waste of Money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2007

Other than its location, I can't really say anything positive about the Panafric Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. Physcially, the rooms are ok, but the noise coming from the street and bar are unbearable. The reception staff are amazingly unhelpful, and the food in the restaurant is disgusting. Stayed here for five days on business, and couldn't wait to leave. By the way, a one minute phone call to the States costs $20. I ordered room service three times, and never once ate more than 1/3 of the meal. Terrible, and there are so many better options for the money. Stay away.

Stayed November 2007
