Palacina has one of the best private dinning rooms. I've been there twice in the last month for birthday parties and I'd recommend it for anyone who wants to throw a party for pax 20. The service, food and ambiance is that extra touch needed for a super dinner party. Thanks to Justus and his team. We will definately be back!

Palacina is one unforgettable experience. I had a fantastic time in my short stay and would not even think twice about recommending it to my friends and business associates. I especially liked the food and ambiance and most of all the service. It guarantees real value for one's money.The relaxed and peaceful atmosphere gives the ideal environment for one to conduct their business. Congratulations Palacina, you are definitely a cut above the rest in the hotel and hospitality industry. Keep up the good work.

We stayed here for one night whilst en route to Tanzania for Safari. It was about a 30 min drive from the airport and you see a bit of Nairobi on the way. The hotel is behind heavy security doors and well guarded. We felt very safe. Rooms are lovely, very spacious and huge beds. Breakfast was quite limited but certainly adequate in terms of continental. Gardens looked nice but sadly we didn't have time to enjoy them.

We just spent one night at the Palacina following a two week Safari and prior to our flight home. The hotel is located near the state house thus is in a good location though nowhere in Naroibi is it safe to wander the streets. Every building is a walled compound.

The Palacina is a small boutique hotel. We were in room 18 which was up two flights. It had a spacious deck, large sitting area, very comfortable king, walk in closet, and an extra large bathroom. Very comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent with a nice band playing at a comfortable sound level.

The next day we planned on touring and returning to the hotel to freshen up, and have dinner prior to heading to the airport at 7pm. Given it was raining we returned at 2pm and the hotel was gracious enough to comp us a free room in their residential apts area so we could relax and shower before the long trip home. That was a big and very pleasant surprise. Our tour operator, Kensington, must do a lot of business with them.

Room Tip: Room 18 was very nice.

We were upgraded to the penthouse upon our arrival and the suite was fantastic, great decor and design throughout the whole hotel.
The attached restaraunt was really great and we enjoyed our meal there during our brief stay in nairobi.
The only negative I have was that when the small shaving mirror fell in our room and smashed while I was using it, I reported it to reception and apologised and did say I would pay. However upon check out we were charged $25US for whatseemed to be a $5 mirror. But it was 5am and I was in no mind to argue it out.
The hotel is decorated to a high standard (there are also an interior design company).
We only arrived mid afternoon and left early morning so didn't see anything of nairobi, but this hotel was an oasis of calm and luxury hidden away behind security gates and high walls, within the chaos of nairobi

My husband and I took a two week Safari in Africa. We arrived in Nairobi around 8:00 pm, so were tired from the long travel. The hotel is small, but the staff friendly and accomodating. We were able to order food, and wine/beer before heading to bed. Rooms were comfortable and modern. We had to go up several flights of stairs to get to our room, but we had a busboy carry our luggage. This hotel is expensive, so hard to justify the price when we were just there to sleep. Not sure if there is anything to do near the hotel, since we were only there overnight.

Room Tip: If you have an issue with stairs, you may want to request a room on a lower level.

I stayed here for a week on business and really enjoyed the hotel.

I would say that this is not really set-up for business travellers (internet not great, desk area not great to work on, etc.) but for a holiday this would be my first choice of a place to stay.

The rooms are large, safari styled and very comfortable with a separate area with a sofa, TV and simple kitchen.

The restaurant is very nice and the grounds that the hotel is located on are green and picturesque. The staff are friendly and very willing to help however they can.

If you are coming to Nairobi on holiday, maybe passing through to go on Safari I would highly recommend staying here.
