The Hotel is a regular Business class hotel located in a good location. The rooms and Facilities are good. The Staff were also good.
Room that I stayed had a lot of noise coming from outside and hence could not get a good sleep.
Over all an good place for a short stay.

we visited Kenya on a business trip and stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. we feel a comfortable stay, delicious Indian and Continental food, Good service and helpful reception staff. This property is located in the city centre, accessible to nearby shopping malls, restaurants & local market.

My brothers wedding took place in Nairobi from 10th to 13th July. We put up all our guests at the emerald. We took up a total of 50 rooms. Very clean hotel, well maintained, compared to ones we saw of similar price range before booking. Hotel is situated on the 6th to 8th floor (last two floors) of a commercial building. There are a number of restaurants and clubs around the vicinity as well as two big malls. There is ample secure parking but a bit expensive. Never got a chance to taste food at their restaurant but the view form the restaurant is really nice overlooking the city.
We used one of the three big multi purpose halls for one of our functions. Really nice with a really good view.
Staff were quite helpful. We had minor issues in one or two of the rooms with the door key not working and the toilet being blocked in the other. Other than that rooms were really well maintained.
Being surrounded by night clubs, noise was a small issue. Though they have a wing which is less noisy.
Overall had a great time! Would definitely like to return for another wedding at the emerald.

Room Tip: Choose the less noisy wing.

Stayed here with a colleague for about 1 week.
The hotel is nice and people managing are good. So much being advised about the security concerns in Nairobi the environment of the hotel and surrounding was really different of the stories and we felt quite secure.

Service was although quite slow; I guess the new established place was having teething problems.

The location of the hotel is something which is extremely good.

The hotel building (top 3 floors of a 8 storey building complex) is not very attractive as property compared to the prices.

Room Tip: Call & book; chances are there for getting a good deal depending on how much rush they are into. Ideal location for Indian travelers. Roadside rooms could be disturbing on weekends due to clubs nearby.
