“City Hotel with a Remote Feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Was here for two nights for a residential meeting. The staff were quite friendly. Contrary to my expectations, the rest of Nairobi is easily accessible by public means from the nearby Thika Road. It is an urban hotel with a very remote and relaxing feel.
The bathrooms, though, are dated and I failed to figure out the workings of the hot water in the bathroom. One evening the water was not hot at all and at other times the hot water was just warm enough for me not to mix the shower with cold water.
The breakfast buffet is full of variety.
My busy schedule did not allow me to to have a better experience of the hotel. Nevertheless, I did enjoy my stay at the hotel

We stayed one night at the safari park hotel before starting our safari. The hotel grounds are attractive the rooms are spacious, adequate but a little dated. The staff are friendly and helpful. We eat at the Italian restaurant the food was very good. It is a perfect hotel to relax before a safari. The hotel is roughly a 30 minute drive from Nairobi international airport so not the most central of locations. Breakfast is buffet style with a wide variation. We would recommend this hotel.

We probably wouldn't have booked here due to the cost except it was part of our safari package. That said, the facilities were great. They even have a ~1mile running track around the grounds. Great pools. Good restaurants. Friendly staff. Great place to relax before a road safari! Not centrally located so you will probably find yourself not venturing offsite for dinners, etc.. But we can recommend both Cafe Kigwa and the italian on-site restaurant (don't miss the ravioli!)..

This is my second visit to Nairobi and Safari Park. This time around we are coming back from a Safari trip. Safari Park is well secured and recommended by the embassy. The lobby is impressive as always. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautifully furnished, had everything that I needed, really.. no complaints here. The one thing that made me come back to this place is the African restaurant. If you're a meat lover like myself then this is meat heaven. The show comes on about 9 pm, an enthralling display of traditional African dance and acrobatics. Also this time around, there were 3 wedding receptions and a couple of conferences in the hotel. This made some places inaccessible. If you like to relax by the pool without any disturbances, then this might not be the place for you.

I went to Safari Park for one of my best friends wedding, and I must say, I was totally impressed. It's a huge beautiful place, with great staff and a nice breeze of fresh air. The fact that it's away from the Nairobi city centre made me love it even more!

Very different from other Nairobi hotels - as it is on the outskirts of town it is set in large grounds and exudes space and tranquility. Public facilities are good and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Rooms are quite dark and traditional but very clean, spacious and comfortable. Beds are massively comfortable.

Breakfast is fab, evening buffet average.

The new Thika Highway is amazing... Shaves a huge amount of time off transfers from JKIA.

Not for one night NBO stays but for 2+ or pre-safari, its perfect.
