LAICO REGENCY HOTEL IN NAIROBI
Travelers embarking on a Kenya metropolitan tour who prefer uncomplicated and just lesser adequate accommodations might consider staying at the LAICO Regency Hotel in central Nairobi, though the hotel’s 5 star claim is misleading since service levels need improvement, furnishings are past it due date for renewal and food is simply acceptable. Formerly known as the Grand Regency, the hotel is located just off the snail paced Uhuru Highway, and is 10 miles from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, making it convenient for budget corporate traveler, though make extra time for your transfers in between Nairobi as the city’s traffic level has peaked to absurdity. The hotel offers 188 double rooms, as well as 21 suites in 12 story floors that provide views over the city’s Central Park and surrounds. There is additional convenience in the hotel’s proximity to Nairobi’s CBD and main shopping hub. The Nairobi National Museum and Snake Park also lie nearby. The rooms provide standard amenities including an in-room electronic safe, 24-hour room service, air-conditioning, and Wi-Fi internet as well as toiletries, a bathrobe, hair dryer, and complimentary bottled mineral water. You may also make use of a free shoe shine service, and the hotel runs its own in-house laundry and dry-cleaning service. A key facility is a fully-featured health club that contains separate facilities for men and women, and provides access to fitness machines, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and a heated pool. There is also a casino inside the hotel and a shopping arcade that provides AfricanMecca guests the convenience of not having to leave the hotel to purchase any products or services though expect costs to be higher here. The 5th Avenue Shopping Arcade consists of a curio gift store, hairdresser salon, concierge agent and foreign exchange facilities.
The in-house business center provides complete secretarial and telecommunication services for travelers who need to stay in touch with their business associates while on an AfricanMecca city safari. There are four restaurants at the LAICO Regency to choose between, as well as three bars. The Royal Terrace Coffee Shop, facing onto the lobby, provides hot and cold biting including a variety of pastries and cakes along with warm beverages that you can buy on your way out to explore the city (read more on when is the best time to city tour Nairobi). The Atrium Garden Restaurant provides not only a la carte dining but also themed buffets exploring the cuisine of international destinations from Europe, Asia to Middle East. The Panorama Pool Deck, located alongside the hotel’s heated pool, offers a selection of salad and snacks and the once a week live showbiz on Sundays. Roberto’s, situated at the lobby, tempts guests with Italian fare and a complete bar service. For those who want to explore the outlandish during their Nairobi exploratory trip might prefer the Café Maure, which offers shisha and hot drinks, as well as light snacks. Because the hotel is well-situated in the city center, and contains a range of facilities, it is a value-for-money option for vacation visitors seeking a budget Kenya accommodation in central Nairobi.
