I'm from Kenya, born and bred and when I have guests round to my home I want them to experience the warmth and kindness of my country. I want them to feel at home. That's why my Nairobi hotel guide is different from all those others out there on the internet.
You'll find no long list of hotels here.
I've carefully chosen hotels that will make you feel joy at being in Kenya. Hotels that will add to your experience and that you will remember for many years to come.
My favourites are hotels where you'll experience the warmth of the Kenyan people, taste our food and get a sense of our colonial past while enjoying all modern comforts and convenience.
These are such hotels:
Generations of travellers, explorers, mountain climbers, adventurers and ordinary people too have past through the Sarova Stanly Hotel over the last century. They've left their messages on the famous acacia tree in the Thorn Tree Cafe and all who've been here carry the memories with them forever. It's rather a special place and top of my list of Nairobi hotels for blending colonial character with modern style and convenience. Read more here.
With over a century of history the Norfolk Hotel is still rated amongst the top city hotels. Through its doors have passed such famous names as Theodore Roosevelt, Karen Blixen and Winston Churchill. It's now been renovated, and the name changed to the Fairmont Norfolk Hotel, but tradition has been preserved with the addition of some modern touches.
You'd never believe you are in the heart of Nairobi at the Safari Park Hotel. The huge gardens are full of indigenous trees where butterflies of every colour glide about and tropical birds sing. They've even a "beach" and, if you return from your day's adventures hungry, there's an excellent restaurant serving traditional nyama choma (a Kenyan dish involving LOTS of meat).
A hotel that is perfect for both business and leisure with magnificent view across the city from the rooms on the upper floors. Of course with the Hilton being an international chain the standards are the same as you'd find in Europe or the USA yet they do manage to add a slight Kenyan "flavour" to things.
Of all Nairobi hotels this one is the best option for business travellers. Perfectly located near the Convention Centre it has everything a business traveller could possibly need.Home › Nairobi Hotels
