I've stayed in a few Hiltons - I feel this one was below what you should expect from a Hilton. The rooms are small & have an old feel about them, a problem related to the design of the building rather than Hilton itself. We stayed here twice in the same week as a safari stopover and on the 6th...

I used this hotel as my stopover for a two day safari trips. The hotel is right in downtown close to all the government offices. The Wilson airport is 10 minutes drive away. The international airport about 30 minutes drive. Around the hotel there is a weekend market selling traditional goods, a few good restaurants, and shopping. The hotel is...

Hotel is subpar. Okay for a short stay but not a long stay. Although supposed to be high end hotel, this hotel is old and is in need of renovation. The one thing that is good about this hotel is that it is located right in the center of town.

Been here one night after arriving at Nairobi international airport to get on a 10 day Safari around Kenya. Hotel is closer to the airport and is very convenient and is in middle of the busy Nairobi city. However the hotel is old and it boasts the wrecked colonial characteristics all over the place (in sort of a bad way...

I've stayed in many hiltons but this was first in Africa. The staff, all, are committed to service excellence across the globe. And they are the people that make these palaces come alive. It's a slightly different environment to Switzerland, yes, where Swiss fastidiousness makes the hotel environment sharp and Swiss. This one....it's on a different continent and the culture...

The hotel is centrally located in Nairobi city center. It has a very nice swimming pool. The hotel interior is kind of old and dated. the rooms a really nice though. anytime you visit Nairobi and would want to stay within the city center this would be a very nice location.

I visited Hilton only two nights with my grandkids and the treatment was the best. The staff were very helpful from the entrance staff, front office, restaurant and the pool staff. Telefon service was excellent.

Old property in the heart of the CBD of Nairobi. Very close to KICC - good for business travellers in the area. The hotel service is friendly but slow, the property is very old.
