The Nairobi Safari Club - Hotel Review

The Nairobi Safari Club is the only hotel in Nairobi that offers just suite accommodations. There’s indeed a club atmosphere to the place. The extra space and professional amenities make this hotel a fine choice for business as well as holiday visits to Kenya. It’s known for it’s good service, but it isn’t the cheapest quality hotel in Nairobi with rooms starting at US$ 250 a night (including breakfast).

Suites at the Nairobi Safari Club

There are 3 suite choices available: presidential, panorama and executive. Each one is a suite, meaning there is a bedroom and a separate lounge or living room, as well as a private ensuite bathroom. All of the suites have 3 telephones with voicemail and direct dialing service, satellite television, and a personal safe. All of the executive suites have balconies, and the presidential ones have jacuzzi tubs and 2 writing desks. There are a total of 146 suites at the hotel.

Dining Facilities

The main Safari Restaurant serves up many dishes of international flavour, as well as some of the local cuisine specialties. Each day of the week offers up a different menu theme, such as Italian, Asian or Swahili. For a more casual environment, have a drink or snack at the Safari Terrace Bar. Cocktails are served all through the day, or you can relax listening to some live piano music most evenings. There is also a spot by the pool for grabbing a bite to eat while you swim. On the weekends, they have a special BBQ for grilled dishes.

There are also 7 conference or banquet rooms to house any meetings or events.

Location of the Hotel

The Nairobi Safari Club is on University Way, which puts it right within walking distance of the city center. It's in a very busy neighborhood, which would suit folks who like some nightlife but could be loud for family travelers.

Attractions Nearby

The biggest and best attraction in all of Nairobi is the Nairobi National Park, and this famous safari park is about half an hour away. All the other sites in Nairobi are just a short taxi or matutu ride away: the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum, and the Watatu art gallery. Many local city or safari tours can be arranged through the hotel.

So if you are looking for a bit of extra space with your accomodations, the Nairobi Safari Club is a good option.
