Palacina is a truly great hotel. The atmosphere is amazing...the service so warm and hospitable and the service is super. We were nervous to go to Nairobi after all the trouble we had seen on TV but Palacina was the perfect place to go. Secluded, gated but literally 5 minutes to town with beautiful, warm modern african decor. The food at the Moonflower was excellent...with a great old time jazz playing Loius Armstrong tunes in candlelight.
The rooms are very big with their own walk in closet, jacuzzi in the bathroom, large beds and your own living room with its own fridge, mini bar and microwave. Breakfast was a very nice buffet...with eggs made to order all served in a rustic style with the morning daily. I have stayed in Nairobi before and travel for business and I can honestly say that it is the best hotel that I have stayed in Africa. We particularly enjoyed the complimentary afternoon tea...with scones, raspberry jam and clotted cream served in the cozy lounge with old colonial furniture, comfy sofas and african art. The use of the private lobby was particularly important for us as we were there on business and used it as a venue to entertain our customers that we were meeting with.
The best thing about palacina was the staff..they were really great...no question a problem, no request an issue-totally helpful and service minded.
A great respite from Nairobi...an oasis. Cannot recomend it enough!
