I stayed at Parkside Hotel during a recent visit to Nairobi, Kenya I traveled solo and felt safe at this hotel. I stayed at Parkside after my return from my climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro. What reviewer didn't revealed is that this hotel doesn't have an elevator. Which wouldn't have been an issue if I hadn't just come from a 6...

We stayed here for two nights...once at the beginning and once at the end of the holiday. Just a convenient stopover to fit in with flights. It is clean, comfortable and we did not find it too noisy. The staff were fine and for the money it was exactly what we expected. Paid 2700 shillings each time for double room.

The staff were completely inhumane. How could they treat an expectant mother in such a manner. Had paid up for an entire weeks stay but developed a complication and had to leave immediately. The staff however did not care to listen a bit as they rejected her pleas for a refund of even a single day. Oh what a shame!!

Parkside is a old but good budget hotel near the city center. You are close to the market, Nakumat, bars and restaurants, and just outside do you find taxis and shuttles. The rooms are small and clean, but some noise from the bar behind the hotel. Staff was always friendly Wouldn't stay here for a longer periode

We stayed in this hotel accidently because the nearby Delta which was originally booked for us happened to be full. Well, a double room in Delta cost us 80 USD another night and a double room in Parkside was only 2500 shilling (around 30 USD) and I did not find much difference in hotels quality; so I was even upset...

Parkside is a good budget hotel near the city center. You are close to the market, Nakumat, bars and restaurants . The rooms are small but clean, and they clean up the stairs and the hall every morning. You find just outside taxis, shuttles offices, forex, but don\t expect more than you pay. Staff was always friendly

Upon first entering, the place looks like a dive. The entrance is small and it's easy to miss the sign. Corridor wasn't brightly lit and it's a pay-cash-in-advance type of place. It seemed rather full when I was there, with a steady stream of all sorts of people going in and out . The rooms themselves had old furniture and...

Parkside Hotel is decent value for the money. The rooms are pretty comfortable, and the hot water is reliable. The staff, however, are a drawback: indifferent at best, surly at worst. There is a bar/restaurant next door which is VERY loud at night, with blaring music and the booming voices of boozy revelers, which is annoying. As far as I...

Desk staff could use some "hospitality classes" to develop a warm, welcoming demeanor. The cleaning staff are most kind and helpful should you have any issues. It's an old building, so don't expect new/fancy. But I always feel safe there, and I've stayed 6 or 8 times in the past few years. Restaurant affiliate is immediately next door. You can...

“On Fridays, ask for the street side to avoid the worst of the bar noise. However, the street side has all of the Arusha-bound buses departing. So Sat-Thurs, ask for back side.”
