The room was clean but all I can say is it was very tired... The hotel business centre was well manned and the young lady in charge was extremely helpful. The main reception area is large and can be noisy. The whole place just seems to require a little TLC.

Amazing structure. I stayed there for one night only whilst in transit and I wish I could have prolonged my stay. Loved the interior of the hotel, the room was quite to my liking, comfortable and well-equipped. Pleasant staff, well-organised and helpful service. I would recommend this hotel.

We ended up at the Panari when Kenya Airlines flights were messed up (and credit to Kenya Air for making accommodations and meals hassle free, unlike most US carriers).
