To savor the complete Radisson Blue brand experience, you don't have to travel to the Radisson Blue in Copenhagen, my favorite, I must say. Just make a date with the Radisson Blue in Upper Hill Nairobi. I was there for a sundowner...great views from the balcony, reasonably priced drinks and food menu, lots of choice on the menu, with some...

We stayed here two nights upon arriving in Kenya and just wanted to have a lazy day before going on safari. The hotel is new, the service was great and the rooms are a nice size. No complaints and it is a 5 star hotel.

Top marks for a perfect Christmas day brunch at this Upper Hill hotel!!! Food and service and live band where mystical... Suited for every taste, we thoroughly enjoyed barbecued king prawns, lamb, piglet... For what it offered including variety of salads and sweets, it was excellent value for money priced at KES 5,500 per person excluding drinks!
