Characterless hotel useful for airport

This hotel was perfectly adequate for our needs but suffers from absence of outdoor areas to relax or spend time in. Suitable for one night only when needing to be close to the airport.

Dreadful piped music in every conceivable area - lift, bars, corridors and at the pool

Staff helpful but front desk staff and concierge completely without any initiative

A place to sleep!

Box breakfast was very average - we spent less than 8 hours there!

Convenient airport hotel

Very convenient for both the international and domestic airports.

It meant we were very quickly at our hotel after clearing the airport which was ideal as we took the BA day flight, so arrived late in Nairobi. We then left early the following morning after breakfast.

We returned to the hotel for dinner on our final evening and took the shuttle bus to the airport.

Crowne Plaza Nairobi airport

Very convenient and comfortable for a brief overnight stay before heading off on safari. Breakfast was very nice and the staff helpful and friendly.

We were expecting to have to look for the Crowne Plaza rep and vehicle ourselves when we came out of the arrivals hall at JKIA, but Douglas actually met us and whistled up a Crowne Plaza car for us - which was of course fine, though I am not sure if this was how it was supposed to work.

The only real issue we had was being assigned a room with a connecting door to the neighbouring room, which was a bit disconcerting. Fortunately the second door was safely locked and as we arrived late we did not query it with Reception. Perhaps all the rooms are like this but if not we would definitely request a room without this feature in future.

Expert Africa comments

We were grateful to these frequent Expert Travel travellers for their feedback on these issues. Our local transfer partners are often based at the airport to provide transfers for our travellers staying at hotels further afield or going to Wilson Airport, so this was an additional service to these travellers. The Crowne Plaza's airport vehicles provide no-fuss, shared minivan shuttles to all travellers booked to stay with them.

We're delighted these travellers had a comfortable stay at the hotel. We're sorry they felt uncomfortable about the interconnecting door in the room. However, this feature is quite common in modern, town or airport hotels to allow families to interconnect.

Convenient and comfortable

Having arrived at 10 pm, had a cup of coffee and gone to bed, and then having got up just in time to have breakfast before being picked up by Giraffe Manor, it's difficult to offer a considered assessment of the hotel.

However, the breakfast is very good and the location is excellent - it seems to be the perfect place for a stopover.

Crowne Plaza Nairobi Airport review

We were only there a few hours on the first night but the room was good and they organised a packed breakfast box for us as we had to leave early.

Great convenient location.

Great idea from Richard

Because my niece was flying into JKIA at 4am to start our safari that morning, Richard suggested I move to this hotel at the airport to allow L. to have breakfast with me, a shower and brief nap, before setting out at 7am.

Perfect for the above reasons, and also somewhat comforting to my niece due to the very high level of security, especially in light of recent troubles in the business district in Nairobi. The hotel is new and very up-to-standard.

By the way, the buffet offered at dinner and breakfast is not to be missed.
