Heron Hotel is one of Nairobi's finest and best-known business hotels and is located barely 3km from the city centre and about 20km from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Originally opened in 1975 and recently refurbished, Heron Hotel is a 3-star facility that features amenities and facilities common to many 4-star establishments worldwide.
The hotel’s close location to the Nairobi CBD and the city’s tourist attractions, including Nairobi National Park, does not make it have the bustle that is associated with the city.
Heron hotel has 105 ensuite bedrooms and apartment suites, an al-fresco restaurant, conference facilities, satellite television, swimming pool, sauna, modern business and communication centre, a convenience shop, spacious parking area and travel desk.
The hotel's new in-house restaurant is a new concept for Nairobi, and it features a serene dining hall, an airy balcony, and a sunny patio – TJ’s Steak-Out – that serves as a meeting venue for the mobile Nairobians.
The cuisine is Kenyan and international and features soups, salads, burgers, steaks, grills, fish, a collection of vegetables, desserts, tea and coffee served in a cosy setting with an easy-going ambience. Finger foods and snacks are also available at the hotel’s well stocked bar.
