The staff was very friendly and helpful, the downside was the restaurant. The staff was incredibly slow and the food was sub par. Breakfast was fine, but the two times we ate there for dinner was awful. The waitstaff would 40 min to bring water and the food took even longer.

Professional and friendly staff!
Fantastic service from all staff, throughout the hotel. Genuinely welcoming - making the entire Nairobi experience positive. It feels very safe and secure. Rooms are large and well furnished and food offering is good. Could do more to reduce single use plastic in the bathrooms though!

Loveliest hotel staff - recommend a stay 😀
Hotel had a more classic feel than expected but the awesome staff made up for that. From Jonte on concierge helping me with every request to Nickson at the Swimming pool bar. Everyone was keen to help and happy doing it. I’ve not enjoyed such dedicated service in other recent stays so enjoyed every ounce of it. Thanks again all and see you again soon.

Not a 5 Star Hotel
My wife and I stayed at the InterContinental Nairobi for one night on our honeymoon and I was overall disappointed in the condition of the hotel as it’s definitely not consistent with other IC hotels I’ve been to. That said, security was wonderful and the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. I think if this hotel received a capital infusion and makeover, it would absolutely be a 5 star hotel. As it stands right now, I would give it 4 stars.

Good hotel, but a little tired
A nice hotel with some good facilities and excellent staff, but it's looking a bit old-fashioned. Could do with a refresh of the rooms.

Very good
It was very good! Liked the room which was so clean. I would have given this hotel a higher rating had it not been for the non operational spa tub and the steam and sauna room which had a rather bad smell and requires renovation in my opinion. Overall a good hotel located in a central place very close to the Parliament of Kenya and the Kenya Convention Centre.
Cecilia, us10 night business trip
Good 6,0
The hotel is in severe need of renovations and over used mattresses. Room, elevators and everything on the property felt very outdated and stained, that it was all screaming for remodeling. If you eat your steak below medium, you shouldn’t order the steaks here. The Indian restaurant is outstanding. The breakfast and lunch buffets are very average. Very professional, kind, helpful and always smiling staff. THE AIR CONDITIONING WAS NEVER ON during my entire stay at any of the common areas, cafes or restaurants. Great location if you’re in town on business, as I was.
