9.0.Superb.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Excellent

    Tamarind Tree is ideally placed for an overnight stay prior to a flight out of Wilson. We used one of their drivers,Gerald, who picked us up from the airport, drove us for our visits to elephant sanctuary etc. We ate lunch, evening meal and breakfast and all food was of a good standard. Room was lovely and enjoyed a cooling dip in the pool

    Very good place

    We are frequent visitors to Nairobi and have stayed at many hotels across Kenya. Within this price range/class Tamarind Tree Hotel is the best option in Nairobi. The rooms are very comfortable and exceptionally clean (the cleaning staff are friendly and efficient). The location, just outside of town, is fine; there is a shoppping mall about ten minutes away with various place to eat. Carnivore restaurant (also owned by Tamarind) is nearby. Generally, staff are professional and friendly (Oliver in the restaurant is particularly good). This makes the one or two staff who are neither friendly nor professional really stand out. Service in bar/lounge is okay, needs better communication between staff and general improvement in efficiency. Food in restaraunt is okay, but limited selection and for the price some of the food and ingredients are not up to a good standard (the cheese burger for example, and cheap looking French fries). Need better selection of food. Breakfast is top class though, the best we've had in Nairobi after staying at dozens of hotels over the last decade. Check in and reception are helpful and generally efficient, although there was an unacceptably long delay to check in on one occasion as room wasn't ready until 3.20pm when check on was 2pm. These are fairly minor criticisms because generally this place is a very good option.

    Great stay for Wilson Airport.

    A stylish modern hotel with lots of African art which added to the atmosphere. Rooms were large and well equipped. Little bracelets left for guests made by local social enterprise was a unique touch. Great, efficient friendly staff. Very convenient for Wilson Airport.

    Excellent hotel near Wilson Airport

    This is an impressive hotel, well managed, and a comfortable place to be. It is a new hotel though, and a few rough edges show. One or two members of staff seem a bit lacking in the customer service department, but presumably they will be replaced. The concierge department is a weak area.

    Modern, clean and safe hotel

    Clean, modern and safe hotel. Could use other breakfast options other then the expensive buffet. Also if staying on a weekend, very busy with locals who come for the brunch buffet or other events and are given full day access to the pool area so not the most relaxing for hotel guests. Really needs more poolside seating.
