  • 8.0.Very good

    A mixed bag, but lots of potential

    Spacious rooms, excellent location. Renovations ongoing around the pool and elsewhere that don't really allow the "full experience" at the hotel at the moment (December 2019). Staff were polite and friendly, but there was a strange pattern of multiple staff making questionable, inappropriate, or off-colour jokes.This gave an unprofessional impression which still lingers a week after my stay. At a hotel like this, staff should be encouraged to maintain only the highest standards of civility and professionalism. I don't care about your sense of humour -- save it for your friends after work! Otherwise a good addition to Nairobi's high-end hotel scene, where I spend several weeks a year on business. I will consider staying again.

  • 6.0.Good

    Expensive food and room description wrong

    When I booked I saw and liked the executive room which I saw in September when given a tour of the hotel. On check in I was given a deluxe room NOT an executive room. When I complained a lady called Diana on reception was bordering being very rude when I pointed out that the pictures on and also what I was told on my tour showed that I had been given the wrong room. It took the manager to come out and accept that I was not given the room I booked. I now see they have changed the titles on the pictures on Room only was the only option on this site and when I enquired about the price of breakfast they told me it was a staggering $27 per head. All the food and drink were so overpriced. I have stayed at Sankara, Dusit D2 and Kempinski and the food and drink is the most expensive I have come across. It is convenient for the business district and local mall but I won't be back

    A short a comfortable visit to Nairobi

    Lovely place as can be expected. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nicely located in Westlands and within walking distance of the Sarit Centre. Only setback was taking about 3 hours to serve supper. Will recommend for any visitor to Nairobi who is looking to stay in comfort.

    Movenpick is the perfect home away from home. The location is close to the mall, the staff is amazing and friendly, the food was tasty, and the rooms are large and comfortable

    Needs improvement

    Overall good location, but older hotel. Needs a renovation. Food was delicious. Checkin took longer than it should have. I find it hard to belive that there are no wine bottle openers in the rooms and it took 2 phone calls and 45 minutes to get one. Will likely stay at a different location in the future.

    All staff I interacted with were so friendly and warm. I was really spoiled for my birthday stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Nairobi. The hotel itself is a little odd and furnished in a strange way (strange materials) but the staff made my stay very special!
