If you want to be with reach of the Nairobi City centre but tucked away in the a cosy and quiet place. Panari is your choice. Choose the rooms to the front of the hotel . They face the park and you can catch a glimpse of the Southern bypass. With the Ice Rink , Anga Sky Cinema and several...

The hotel overlooks Nairobi National Park so you get great views if the park and the Nairobi City skyline. Excellent buffet meal for 25 dollars except you gotta pay for drinks separately. Its close to the JKIA airport and few minutes from Nairobi National Park, Giraffe Center. There is an Imax theatre in the second floor with 3D movies.

Kenya Airways accommodated us at the Panari Hotel when they rescheduled a flight without notice and we missed our connection to Zanzibar. We spent a day here from 8.30am-4.30pm and I'd have to say it was absolutely fine. It is a massive complex that screams 1970 in its decor and furniture but the staff to a person were fantastic and...

Not too far from airport, on the highway, really expensive considering the quality. The room had pretty dreadful views. The bathroom was not very clean. The bed was big and comfortable. People at reception were not very attentive or friendly. In general we felt the place lack charm.

Old property, wear and tear visible, even some worn out table edges scratched me while trying to reach for a power socket which again is not found at convenient spots! In terms of location, this was closer to my place of work, though far from city centre.
