It has been an experience much unexpected compared to all my previous trips to Nairobi. It is definitely a home away from home with the touch of an above and beyond service. Great staff and management. Located in the middle of Nairobi, it is close to entertainment and malls, and about 30 min from the airport (without traffic of course😏).... More

Well cooked food with good options for lunch or dinner. If staying at the hotel for a few days it does get a bit repetitive however gives you the option to try a few different items from the menu. Really enjoyed the chicken wing starters and had a well cooked steak. Rosemary bread very tasty.

Nice environment, good service, although there are limited options, especially if you are staying at the hotel for multiple days. The lunch and dinner menu are the same.

We had forgotten it was Valentines day so it was a nice surprise to find the special menu in the Moonflower restaurant at the Palacina. The food was beautifully presented and tasty. Service was good and the price reasonable.

There's a lovely complimentary high tea every afternoon, coffee and tea throughout the day. The hotel has several excellent drivers and the security is superb -... More

There was a wonderful selection of meat/cheese and a variety of fruits. Dinner was on the terrace. The food was served hot, and was delicious. The atmosphere was... More

The food and service is spot on. The ambiance is good. It feels very cozy. One thing I'll point out, if you're looking for variety this is not the place. The menu is very limited. I didn't have a problem with that though as everything I ordered was exceptional.

I love the ambiance and setting of this place. I have been here twice and both times were a lovely experience. The staff were welcoming and the fact that i had not reserved on a busy day like 31st December evening, they still managed to get us a wonderful sitting place in less than 5 minutes. We were given some... More
