The ambience, Music and overall Service at Sarabi is Superb! Nairobi Sankara is Definitely the hangout spot over the weekend. The cocktails and Tapas menu are to die for and I definitely recommend you to try them out. It's a great Venue for birthday parties and office parties too.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Roof top bar and swimming pool presents a great view of the Westlands. Nigerian actor Mike Ezuruonye was here too! My stay in the Superior King room was worth it. Free WiFi and Airport transfers were a good experience too.

Excellent place with a good restaurant and even better service. Food quality was good and quite healthy to eat. They took good care of my daughter and kept her busy and entertained. My only issue was charging for parking. An establishment which is a 5 star this is definitely not required. Rest all is fine and I will definitely visit...

This was my 6th stay in this hotel in last 1 year. Comfortable and clean rooms, well equipped gym, fine roof top bar are few of the things worth mentioning. Excellent restatement with Indian vegetarian food in the menu and a well spread breakfast are the highlights ..
