An Amazing Experience With Heron Hotel”

It was an amazing experience to visit Republic of Kenya and my great experience with The Hotel Hotel. Highly recommended for stay either alone or with the family members. Excellent services provided for stay, room service, reception and Security service. All the staff members are outstandingly supportive and give help and guidance in all regards. They give amazing breakfast and you can taste all the flavours. The room are great for stay. Must visit Kenya and stay at The Heron hotel.

Lovely hotel!”

I stayed one night at the Heron Portico. It was so cool and trendy here, but also quiet and affordable. The restaurant and breakfast were delicious. I can't wait to come back!

Good hotel not in the heart of Nairobi”

Comfort, cleanliness, staff performance

Our stay was brief but satisfying. The Heron may be as good as they get in Nairobi for this kind of budget.
