Fabulous 8,8 From 117 reviews

Poor 2,0
No water!
There was no water and no communication regarding the status of the water upon check-in by reception. First morning there was a trickle of water, but cold water only! Second morning the guest had to boil a kettle to shave. This is unacceptable for a 5* hotel!! No option given to move to another hotel & we had pre-paid for accommodation - no compensation given - very disappointing!!

Great Property!
Really great property! Staff super friendly and helpful and the rooms are fantastic. The food was tasty and really fresh and reasonably priced. Definitely our new place to stay if the standards are maintained or improved.

Great hotel, excellent service! I have stayed in several places in Nairobi, but the Radisson Blu is a step above the rest. Location is convenient to much of the Westlands, Upper Hill, and the central business area.

Beautiful hotel, good service, meals average
The hotel was beautiful, from the reception area to the rooms and the bathrooms. The general service of staff was also good except when the hotel was busy, especially in the bar area. I found the meals and beverages to be expensive and at the food not at the consistent quality I would have expected and for some reason, breakfast was not included in my rate which I cannot understand.

Fair 4,0
The issue of charging 60$ for early Check in. The room service/dining was lacking and the smart buttons on the telephone were not functional and part of the card entry system on the door just fell off!
Kwizera, gb3 night trip

Very heavily secured hotel in Nairobi area
Standard Radisson Blu which provides a good quality experience, even though a little cookie cutter, but dependable. Very heavy security, almost like being in a secure camp.
