On my first visit I stayed in a tinny room and I did not like it at all. Then I visited again and was booked in a spacious 501 room. I thought it was the best, then I visited a colleague's room, number 502' , if I remember well and wow! It was so huge and nice. I have come...

Being within town, they have nice and affordable rooms. The staff are also very welcoming. They need to work on their dinner menu though. Something about it which is beyond their control is the own noise, though at Night its minimal.

A hotel which is really good for an overnight stay only. Nothing else. If you will be out during (dinner) night time, just be careful on the street. LEAVE your VALUABLES at the hotel. Be safe always. :)

The Clarion Hotel is situated at the end of Moi Avenue street, ideally a good location on the quiet side of town. A calm Sunday evening, expected serenity being a Sunday. I check in and there is a church service still taking place at 7pm. So much for peace and quiet. One lift was operational (beginning to think of getting...

Just happened to be in Town for a day before I travelled and I decided to look up hotels around town. Luckily Clarion popped up first and I decided to give it a shot. It's in a decend spot in town but right in the middle. Parking is okay. When I walked in, there were a bunch of nice receptionists....

This hotel has very friendly staff, very nice environment, extremely accommodating. They negotiated with me on their typical rate by almost 40%. Rooms are good for Kenya. Hot "rainfall showerhead" showers, good beds. No AC. The one and only downfall is a pretty big one, and it is mostly not their fault, it's just being in the location of the...
