We were checked-in to the Radisson Blu after our KLM connecting flight from Nairobi was cancelled. Since there was at least 50 of us, check -in took quite a while. Other than that the standard room was superb, had a gown and slippers, comfortable bed and clean bathroom. A big plus was the packed breakfast i got at 5am having...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

I have never been this excited inside a hotel in Kenya since I last visited the Ritz, but being in Radisson Blu matched if not surpass the experience I got. And oh my God,...

Good hotel which could be better with better food offering at the conference and breakfasts. Speciality restaurant is very expensive and while i did not eat there, perception is that the food is ordinary.

The hotel is new. Fresh and clean. The staff were friendly and competent. I had a most enjoyable 8 day stay. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, as was in-room dining food and service. Even the housekeeping staff were pleasant and chatty. The only blemish is the farcical and fruitless attempt at security at the vehicle entrance which is no more...

I recently spent three nights at this new hotel, was quiet impressed, by all they had on offer, the rooms seemed very clean and spacious, the hotel staff very friendly and helpful, and enough lounging space in the evening. Even though the hotel seemed extremely with the Somali president staying there, it's worth recommending it while in business.

The hotel is beautiful, trendy and modern as one would expect the Radisson to be. My only disappointment is that they don't offer turn down service in the evenings. I don't like going to my room after a long day and still have to close the curtains, look for slippers, etc. what also bothers me is that no matter how...
