The Parkside Hotel is right in the heart of the action in Nairobi and only a short walk fropm many attractions. As mentioned by other reviewers it is good for a night maybe two. We arrived late afternoon witout a booking and had no problem securing a room.
The hotel is showing it's age, but I believe still offer excellent value compared to other hotels nearby. We had a trplie room for one night and it cost 3500KS($41) without breakfast. The rooms are basic but still had they reasonable linnen and even a TV! The bathroom was a little grubby, suspect hotwater system but acceptable, once again considering the price.
We had room 312 at the rear of the hotel and it overlooked the bar in the lane behind and was quite noisey until the music turned down at midnight. That being said we slept sleep well as we had an action packed day.
The staff were excellent and it was no problem to leave our luggae in a secure storeage room at reception until our flight in the evening. They even had a room which we could change our clothes in before the flight.
All in all a good experience!
