Amazing experience all around!! By far the nicest staff we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Everyone was so kind and helpful at all times. The rooms are very nice and modern, and housekeeping would make sure we’d always come back to a clean space (shoutout to Maxwell for being the sweetest and checking in with us to make sure we were happy with how he cleaned and organized our belongings)! We as a family have traveled all over the world, and this hotel breakfast/restaurant is by far the BEST food/buffet we have ever had! Genuinely the most amazing experience with the most amazing people! So sad to leave, but we will absolutely be back!

What an incredible stay, a brand new hotel nestled in Nairobi set among the Karura forest and a sanctuary in the heart of the city.

The hotel has an interesting story based on modern colonialism, and this theme is reflected by all artwork that captures the cultural nuances of Kenya. Rooms are very well appointed, and small touches like the retro colonial telephone and side tables make it all a unique experience and not just another hotel.

The restaurants are all unique with diverse menus and overlook either the treetops or the pool area, and the ambience is incredible.

Parts of the hotel are still under construction, but it means you have the hotel essentially to yourself! On a side note, the gym is one of the best I've seen in a hotel with brand new technogym units.
Overall, a must visit in Nairobi!!

Breathtaking ambience amazing food for adults and kids attentiin to details and deserves more than a five star. The front office are welcoming and kitchen team font get as much credit as they deserve. They have very cautious security and theres evidense of a much intricate state of the art security you can tell by the olacement of the lagguage scanner. I would reccommend on a sunny sunday youd think you are outside nairobi. The most eye catching element is the cleanliness good luck trying to spot even a spec of dust.The housekeeping team must be working overtime.

For those thinking about a special stay in Nairobi, please reconsider if you're looking at this establishment. My experience at this hotel, which cost a steep $300 per night, was disastrously far from what you'd expect at such a price point. Half of the property is under construction, disrupting what could have been a peaceful stay.
Our room, while clean and aesthetically pleasing, came with its own set of problems. The windows were sealed shut, trapping a nauseatingly strong odor of paint that made it difficult to breathe. But the real kicker came during the night when the electrical system seemed haunted—lights flickering on and off at random intervals throughout the late hours without any apparent reason. It wasn't just annoying; it was downright spooky, disrupting our sleep multiple times. If someone was in the room switching the light on and off...
This hotel also seems to prioritize local traffic over its guests—the on-site restaurant, which one would expect to provide a convenient dining solution, was packed with non-guests, making it difficult to get a table. A simple SA glass of wine was overpriced at $20, and if you thought that was bad, breakfast was an additional $50 for an adult and a child! The food was average.

Dear G3656WEannay, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We genuinely regret any disappointment you experienced during your stay, and we extend our sincerest apologies for the impact it had on your experience. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities, and it is disheartening to hear that you did not feel comfortable during your stay. We have been experiencing unusually heavy rains lately which was announced by the office of the Governor, and this had an impact on the city, and subsequently the hotel. We had to get our teams to quickly respond to the affected areas and this unfortunately impacted your experience including visibility of re-construction of spaces. The power shutdown at night, was also the result of the adverse weather conditions which caused our lights to re-set several times. Our sincere apologies, as we would not like anyone to experience similar circumstances. Our Restaurants across the hotel are very popular amongst the local residents, as like any Curio Collection is one of the driving factors of the brand. We however always make sure to have tables available for our hotel guests, and we quickly seated you during your visit without any wait. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to the opportunity to demonstrate the improvements we are making, and to show you that it was one-off situation. Best regards, Adel Mojarrad General Manager

While the hotel is not fully open yet, my family and a frienda had the opportunity to have a wonderful dinner at the poolside restaurant in the hotel last night.

It was an amazing and pleasant surprise, the venue is stunningly beautiful, the menu is Greek inspired, the wine-list is extensive, and the service was outstanding.

We sampled a wide variety of dishes from the menu and they were uniformly outstanding. I understand the chef is Greek, and clearly his love for food came through in the product.

The staff has obviously been hand selected and extremely well-trained. Ivett was our server/host and she made us all feel welcome and cared for. The service was friendly, professional, timely, unhurried and delivered with a smile.

When opened it will be a boutique with I believe about 60 rooms. It will become an incredibly popular venue for business lunches, parties, and family get-togethers.

We all look forward to sampling the other restaurants on the property over the coming weeks.

Well, done

Had a wonderful stay. Special shoutout to Alfred at Upepo, he overheard a birthday toast and organized cake. He was also very efficient. Breakfast at Meko was good too. Wouldn’t recommend valet parking though (he left a window down and had a scratch that we managed to fix with rubbing compound)

This is one best Hilton outfit I have had the pleasure to stay in, ambience, decor, food and customer service. I hope they are able to maintain the standard and the bar they have set. Will definitely recommend and will be back soon. Amazing customer service. It's the people that make the place and this a perfect example. From checking in counter to housekeeping. Personally would like to acknowledge Olive for outstanding customer service relations- she was attentive, quickly resolved issues and followed up to make sure my experience with them was outstanding, Joan at the front desk for making my restaurant reservations, Sam the butler for the tour of the hotel and tricks on how to navigate the maze, Joy from housekeeping making sure my room was perfect everyday and dropping those home made facial scrubs every evening, Jacqueline from Meko Restaurant , Alfred from Upepo restaurant and Big Steve from security. Thank you to all the staff for making my stay memorable, looking forward to seeing you soon.

I have visited many restaurants but meko is unique.
An open kitchen, passionate chefs, enlightened service personnels and great ambience.
For the night we had mushroom croquettes and fried calamari followed by grilled chicken and lamb from the charcoal oven. To crown it all we took house made ice creams for desserts.
The food was awesome and to details.
This is my favorite spot now.
