heavenly luxury Jun 20, 2011
Sometime last year,i went to visit a cousin of mine who was staying at the hotel.the hotel is in upperhill(one of nairobi's major business centres).Its 20 minutes away from the city center and is mostly preffered by people coming to nairobi from business.They have beautiful and clean rooms,free high speed internet and readily available taxis.the staff was great even though i wasnt a guest at the hotel.i wouldnt say the food was fantastic it was just ordianry to me i expected more but incase you want to try out some local cuisine and enjoy a night out there are plenty of nice bars and restraurants around and you can enjoy a kenyan night out.

Luxurious stay in Nairobi Jul 22, 2011
Stayed at the Crowne Plaza Nairobi for a week in July. This is an excellent hotel that lives up to the Crowne Plaza name. It is modern, with inviting architecture and welcoming staff.

The room was spacious with a big bathroom (separate shower stalls and bath tub). The beds were comfortable (a bit soft for my own taste) and you could chose from different type of pillows. There was a nice work desk and a flat screen TV (with 3 channels with 24/7 movies). The usual amenities such as mini bar, safe, ironing board etc. were present and accounted for. High speed wireless network worked well and was free of charge.

The breakfast was included in my room rate and it had a large selection of items in the morning. The dinner also was a buffet and had similar variety of choices. The items on the room service menu were also reasonably prices and delicious. The gym in the Crowne Plaza is also well equipped with plenty of treadmills and ellipticals. It is among the top 2 gyms I have seen at a hotel.

The service was topnotch. All staff were smiling and pleasant at all times, and made you welcome at the hotel. I usually do not get housekeeping during my stay and leave the do not disturb sign on at all times. The manager always called me in the evening to confirm that I indeed did not want anything else since housekeeping had skipped my room. there is a concierge/travel desk which will help arrange for everything from a half day city tour to multi day safari to Masai Mara or Mombasa.

The only downside maybe the price, however I am sure much cheaper rates may be found on travel sites on the web than the corporate rate I paid. Another consideration would be proximity to city center. While it is by no means far (only 10 minute drive with no traffic), it is certainly not walking distance. If you would like to be in the hustle and bustle of downtown Nairobi, the Intercontinental or Hilton may be a better choice. You do get more peace and quiet with the Crowne Plaza, which is in a more suburban style area with many of embassies located around it.

All in all, this is a fantastic hotel to stay in at Nairobi, you will not be disappointed.

Disappointing but not bad Sep 20, 2011
I spent one night at this hotel and was very impressed by the service and how clean and slick the hotel was. This was clearly an upscale hotel but in comparison to other such hotels in Nairobi it was much cheaper. The room was large, nice, comfortable, the bed was amazing. The shower had nice pressure so if you wre returning from a safari or country side travel you could get a nice scrub down.

But the hotel had a bunch of issues too that i found disappointing. The hotel has a coffee shop and two restaurants. At 9 pm the coffee shop had nothing to eat and both the restaurants had shut down. The hotel is located in a nice corporate area but there are no restaurants at a walking distance. They did have room service so i had to eat sitting in my room. Not ideal.

Like every hotel in the area this one too provides laundry service. They have a standard form like all other hotels that you fill up and the form provides the cost. Since i had been travelling a lot i figured the rates would be about the same as every other hotel. Well they were not. 2 t shirts, 2 socks,2 underwear, and one pair of pants cost me US $ 45. Even the hotel management agreed this was too high but they did nothing about it.

Overall this left me with a bad taste. I will probably not go back there.
