“Truly a Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

A midst serene and clean surrounding nestles Nairobi Hill Hotel. Arrived at night and the taxi driver took some time in locating it but once I reached there I felt at home. Was too tired and wanted the restaurant to rustle up something vegetarian and lo I was served piping hot food exactly what I would have relished at home and that too late in the night. Staff at the restaurant and front desk are really courteous and helpful. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. Whatever I asked for it was provided - be it an electric adapter or newspapers. I would definitely come again and stay with them and would recommend everyone visiting Nairobi to stay here for once. I will be leaving tomorrow for Addis and have already started missing the hotel and its staff. Oh yes WI FI quality is excellent and so is there breakfast.
I would though appreciate the entire staff who attended me at restaurant or at reception but Agnes, Diana, and Millicent really pampered me.

"La bonne bouche", that is the restaurant that defines fine eating in Nairobi today. This restaurant is situated at the Nairobi Upper Hill Hotel. It is designed like a luxury tent complete with tent-like chairs, not squeezed. The meals are super good, no matter what you order. If you are wondering where to go for an evening outing or office lunch or dinner, this is the place to go.
For business meetings they have a modern board room.
Everything is new and squeaky clean and I pray they maintain the standards.
After our lunch, we were given a tour of the hotel rooms and my honest opinion is that they are a cut above the rest. The rooms are spacious, airy and very very clean and most important very affordable.
Because it is small, the service is personalised.
There is ample, secure parking.
Fantastic as a business or leisure venue.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed ok but you can chose a room facing the Upperhill skyline or the hotel restaurant.

Upper Hill has its fantastic touch of exotic legacy that Nairobi offers. The rooms are simply great and the view is marvelous. I was on a business trip here, but did manage to have some leisure time as well. The hotel matches every taste. I highly recommend.

My wife and I just stayed 4 nights at Upper Hill Hotel on our way back to France, coming from South Africa. The hotel is ideally located, close to the city center, yet within easy reach from the airport which allows to skip Nairobi's traffic jams. Our room had a very pleasant and trendy design, it was spacious and very clean (the hotel is brand new) with a comfortable bed and all amenities. The staff was friendly and professional (we hope it will last) the food at "La bonne bouche" was excellent and the service staff very nice and efficient. Wifi was available and worked well. Congratulations to all for an enjoyable stay in Nairobi. This hotel is a very good deal and worth the spending.
