“worst experiece”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2007

A taxi took me to the parlklands shade hotel from the airport. It was resonably priced and the staff were good until i left my possesions for their safe keeping and they switched my dollars with fake ones. Then my nightmare began in nairobi the staff were not friendly anymore and were uncooparative. The kenyan police were nice but am still waiting for a refund or communication from the hotel.

If you leave your possesions make sure you have serial numbers or just take your chance and carry everything with you.

  • Liked — proximity to the city centre and they have a nice pub
  • Disliked — the rooms were really old fashioned
  • Tips/Secrets — Keep your money with you at all times
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled with family
