    Our first night's welcome


    This was our first welcoming hotel in Nairobi. After a long 26 hour flight via London, we had finally arrived to Kenya.

    We were greeted with smiles, the typical welcome cool drink of fruit juices and moist towel and lovingly cared for as we checked into the hotel.
    Although everything was still a blurr to us - mainly due to the excitement of actually finally being here, I do remember one thing...

    The genuine smile and wonderful way in which the management and reception met us. They seemed genuinely happy to see us arrive.

    Unique Quality: The rooms were wonderfully comfortable. Crisp white linen, wonderful soft pillows and firm mattresses.
    The bathrooms were our first introduction of what appears to be standard with all the 4 and 5 star hotels in Kenya - a bidet!

    After we had checked in, we had been adviced by the consierge to make our way down to the lobby for live music which would be begining in a short while. Deciding we needed to use up our pent up adrenaline, we took him up on it.
    Imagine our surprise (being Cubans from Miami) when the music began and it consisted of a group of local Nairobi musicians playing and singing old time Cuban classic dance music!
    Although sung 'Phoenetacailly", they were in unison, and dead on.
    We danced Salsa, Merengue and had a wonderful time.

    There are a wide choice of restaurants surrounding the bar area, including a raised casual dining/drinking area where, if you prefer, you can order from the bar and have simple sandwiches, burgers or light meals along with your drink. We opted for the latter.

    Finally, breakfast is served in the rear restaurant facing the pool and gardens. HUGE array of African food as well as American and English. Included in the price of your room.

    Directions: CITY HALL WAY
    NAIROBI, 00100 KENYA

  • Nicer than I am used to!


    Well it’s always nicer when someone else is footing the bill for the hotel! That is how I got to stay here. Otherwise, God knows where I’d have stayed. Seeing as how it is an internationally recognized chain of hotels, it has a better reputation than most. For over the past year they have been doing major renovations on the rooms which have transformed the obviously weary rooms into more modern and clean ones. My favorite part of my room – a heated mirror! Don’t you just hate when you take a shower and your mirror is all fogged up?? Of course that isn’t the only good aspect.

    Unique Quality: multiple restaurants, casino, bureau de change, meeting rooms, pool, 1 schilling breakfast

    good location, services and facilities


    This 5 stars hotel is a bit old, and is going through partial renovations, so make sure that if you want to stay in the room during week days / working hours, to have a room located far from the renovations area.
    the rest is good, 3 restaurants, busy lobby, night club, Casino, shops, bank etc.
    It hosts business people, tourisrs and many Airline crews staying which makes the atmosphere even more mixed and interesting.

    Directions: near the city center

More about InterContinental Nairobi

Central to Nairobi

by Docu2001 about Intercontinental

Nairobi airport was nearly empty when we arrived. Those of you who have been to or through Nairobi airport will know that it is rarely empty. There was much tension in the air because people were coming into the city from all around the country to participate in a rally in Uhura park directly across the street from the Intercontinental, to protest against the government of President Daniel Arap Moi and to form a new political party in opposition.
No one knew what to expect. This hotel, like many Intercontinentals around the world, meets or exceeds the needs of most business travelers. It is very well stocked and very well run.
One bonus - the food was very good and the breakfast was terrific. The Intercontinental is in walking distance to the National Park and is a popular hotel for european tourists on wild animal tours.
