With a proliferation of business and luxury lodges dotted in and around Nairobi, it can be a little tricky to choose the best of them. We have been going out to East Africa for the last 12 years and have, either routing through to the safari lodges or on to the beaches, spent many a night trying them all out…. and have found the Palacina to be the best of them! It is a stunning little hotel with a great restaurant and rooms. At this price, it is certainly the pick of the bunch.


The Palacina is located on the main route into town in a quiet suburb at the State House valley. It has accessible links to Nairobi’s two major airports and Karen- a trendy suburb in the South West of the city. Its location is perfect for those who wish to be central, yet away from the traffic and noise of Nairobi.


The Palacina features 14 luxury hotel suites including two stunning penthouse suites. Each suite is over 140 square metres in size, with its own living room, en-suite bathroom, dresser and a private furnished balcony. Featuring a multitude of the modern accessories that you would expect, the hotel is truly a modern hotel in every sense while still offering all of the personalized service and attention that one would expect from a hotel of this sort of size. In the evenings, guests are invited to the garden, where lights hang in the trees and soft music is played, to have pre-drinner drinks and canopies, which is a lovely touch.


Decorated in calming natural colour tones, teak woods and crisp cottons, the suites are luxuriously appointed and meticulously planned to include state-of-the-art facilities with a warm atmosphere synonymous to Palacina.
