"Palacina review - a Naoribi oasis"
This is a very comfortable property with a lovely restaurant attached. The dinner here was a treat, and the property location gave easy access to the Karen district and related points of interest like the Giraffe center, etc.
Note that the rooms here are very large and finely appointed, so you'll be comfortable during your city stay. It reminded us more of a London stay in Mayfair at someone's flat than a traditional hotel, but for most travelers that isn't a bad thing. And the staff are very helpful with managing bags and making sure the stay is a good one." See all these reviews: 8n in Tanzania; 8n in Kenya; 3n in Zanzibar

"Good hotel worth a longer stay"
We stayed at Palacina twice and on both occassions had problems trying to settle our bill early in the morning using VISA. Nothing wrong with our cards but there appears to be an issue with their processing capability. On the second occassion we had to cobble together all our loose change to pay the bill otherwise we would have missed our flight." See all these reviews: 14n in Malawi; 2n in Kenya
"A miniature palace!"
It seemed like a truly excellent place but, to be honest, it was really over-the-top and somewhat wasted as an overnight stopover. In our particular situation, one of the international hotels we passed enroute from the airport would have served as just as well if not better.
Would be good if Expert Africa had more options in the Nairobi area." See all these reviews: 5n in Rwanda; 1n in Kenya
