8/10 Very Good

Edward Orange saved the day and changed our outlook on this property. Our sincerest thanks to him for focusing on customer satisfaction over all else!! He even let our overlt tired crew go to our rooms to sort out our reservation paperwork bf he took in our payment. Because of him, we will consider Crowne Plaza again. But it will be important to avoid unnecessary online booking confusion between the Nairobi Crowne Plaza hotels that have different fees, services, etc.

Great service, hard beds
Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, food in Bakara was delicious. Beds were incredibly hard and uncomfortable though. Buffet breakfast and lunch were convenient, however the sit down dinner took forever even though only 3 tables were full.

Not a Happy Stay
Not a good experience. It was supposed to be a relaxing few nights before I flew back to the UK. The TV only had news channels, despite the internet advertising DSTV movie channels, and them being available during my stay in Nov 2020. The phone chargers next to the bed did not work. The water in the shower and bath was cold; this was rectified on the last day of my stay. We had to chase for our rooms to be cleaned, as we returned at 4pm and they hadn't been cleaned.
