I stayed at Parkside Hotel during a recent visit to Nairobi, Kenya I traveled solo and felt safe at this hotel.
I stayed at Parkside after my return from my climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro. What reviewer didn't revealed is that this hotel doesn't have an elevator. Which wouldn't have been an issue if I hadn't just come from a 6 day trek 19,000 feet about sea level. My slow climb up 3 flights of stairs to avoid being next to or near the bar was a bit of a challenging. No elevator meant the nice doorman had to carry all my gear ( I over packed) to my room.
The hotel doesn't have a restaurant or computer room. I went across the street to Kenya Comfort hotel to use their computer which they charge by minute but is wasn't working. The room had a mosquito net for each bed. Which I found to be common at all the hotels I stayed at during my visit.
I found the room to be clean and comfortable for the money. The room was very basic. I just needed a safe place to sleep and shower. . Kenya Comfort Hotel is across the street and their rates are $20.00 plus higher. I paid with U.S. dollars and was able to save $15.00. Otherwise, they are basically the same hotel. The only real difference between the two is the fact that Kenya Comfort has an elevator and a computer lab. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
