    Hotel did not offer Free AirPort drop off although they promise. İ guess hotel see the guests a source to charge.

    Very good

    The room was comfortable enough and provided a good night sleep.

    The breakfast buffet lacked some variety and options!

    Hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

    In absence of air-conditioners, fans should have been provided. It was not possible to open the window for ventilation because there was no grill to protect from mosquitos.

    The booking com contat Mr. Onesmus fixed a another hotel very efficiently after I had complained about the room and the hotel.

    On the booking com the hotel is advertised as a 4-star hotel. The Clarion is far from a 4-stra hotel, I think it would barely make it as 3-star hotel. Contrary to the information on the Booked.net the hotel did not have wifi in the rooms or a gym. The photos of the hotel were misleading..

    Good

    It is very centrally located in Downtown Nairobi. The hotel seems fairly new so the rooms are ok. There was a conscious effort made on design. The staff at the reception was very nice and room service very prompt, which was good as we had to call them often.

    It was really ashamed that the efforts made on the design and look of the room, were spoiled by a bad execution of the works: cements and silicone splashed all of the bathroom floor and sink, toilet not properly attached to the ground and wobbly which ended up leaking on the second day!, wall paint peeling from water infiltration. There were a couple of light bulbs missing in some lamps. No mirror anywhere in the room or bathroom. Internet access is very decent through ethernet cable but the cable was too short so had to sit on the floor with computer. Almost empty toilet paper roll on first day which was not automatically replaced on second day. The restaurant was bad: we tried different things on the menu without much luck (meat samosas were ok). Service is very slow. The breakfast buffet is ok, but everything is always missing and it takes a long time to be replaced: almost empty trays of fruits, no butter or jam, etc.

    Location.

    They misrepresented their facilities. They lied about having a gym on the advert when they had none. I had no hot water to bath an it was cold, yet they could not even give me hot water in a bucket or offer to change my room. Apparently it was a problem in all the rooms. The staff could not apologise properly. It's a nice building but I don't think they know or are ready to run a hotel... I checked out the next morning. For $140, I will get a better deal.

    Everything. Despite what was advertised on your website, the room did not have: Air Conditioning A Mini Bar A Safe A Balcony Despite what was advertised on your website the hotel did not have: A Gym Any Air Conditioned rooms Any Mini Bars Any safes Any Balconies This advertisment needs to be changed immediately as it is simply not true.

    Hi, This was one of the worst selections I have made in a long time. I was coming through Nairobi (layover) and wanted to stay in a nice and comfortable place so I could get some work done. The price was way way to high for this hotel. To stay at the hotel i would pay maybe 40 USD. There was: no hot water, no TV, no AC, no WIFI (and the net didn't work when i got in), no gym, no safe; I couldn't make outgoing calls; the place was run down an dirty; and the staff didn't really help out although they were kind of pleasant/nice-nothing got done. When I asked for things they said they would get it or look into it. But mainly, I liked the Booked.net site and used it in the past but I don't think that I will use the site again. I was really disappointed. All of the information regarding this hotel (except the high price) was incorrect. Thanks, Frank

    I did not like a single thing (maybe except the food which was manageable)

    Several things; The hotel/cleaning staff barged into my room twice in 2 days without authorization. The bathroom did not have running water for a whole day. I received a bucket of hot water, after over 6 hours of incessant requesting.... Only 3 satellite channels, no international news channel. The channels froze after a few hours and remained the same until i left. The gym advertised on Booked.net does not exist. It turns out that the gym will not be ready for another 2 months, yet they have the picture of a gym posted online. The rooms do not have air-conditioners and the windows do not have mosquito/protection nets, in case you need to open them for ventilation purposes Staff are polite but like knowledge and hospitality skills.

    The hotel is not finished they should not be open. The hotel does not have wifi in the rooms, just cable. They should advertise like this in case you travel with some tablets. The staff is not properly trained. Second day of my stay there was not even hot water so I had to shower with cold water. The windows were kept open so i had mosquitos in my room Toilet already falling apart

    The hotel is well located on the north-east side of the central business district. There is a severe shortage of new 3 star business hotels in Nairobi city centre offering rooms at around US$100 - US$150 per night.

    This hotel was advertised by Booked.net as having air-conditioned rooms. This is NOT the case. This was the main reason I booked this hotel using Booked.net.

    Friendly staff, tried to help out.

    The room was not finished, no furniture, no television. When taking a shower, the roof of the bathroom started to leak (the water pipe most likely runs through the ceiling.
