A Few Things About
Our Lovely Hotel
Park Place Hotel is located on Magadi Road, close to the awesome beauty of Nairobi National Park, only about 10km from Nairobi Central Business District and just 2km from the Historical museum of the Bomas of Kenya. Park Place Hotel is a beautiful, serene enclave with stylish architecture, where the décor of our newly renovated guest rooms directly complements the natural beauty of the area. Just down the road is the Outstandingly beautiful and breath-taking Nairobi National Park.
The Hotel exudes an air of tranquility, with its tropical gardens that provides a welcome breeze and shade from the heat of the day. Visitors can relax undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of the city, and guests can swim in our beautiful pool.
1987 - The beginning
Our humble beginnings started off as a small tomato and spinach farm. Being next to the national park the monkeys would have the ‘lions share’ of the harvest. A drastic change of business plan saw our foundation begin as a mini mart with a butcher, supermarket, and restaurant completed in 1989.
1989 - 1993 Evolution of Park Place
We started off with a single restaurant that quickly grew to two indoor restaurants, a courtyard and a subterranean disco by the beginning of 1990. With live bands, choma, family days, Park Place was known as the go to place be it a family lunch, drinks with friends or even a special party we always ensure we provided a secluded space for the ultimate experience.
1993 - 1996 First remodel of the Hotel
We also saw a growing need for accommodation as we are located directly opposite the Southern Exit of Nairobi national park. Being passionate about the outdoors, we designed our rooms to each have balcony’s overlooking the National Park. The skylight was an addition in the first remodel of 1996 allowing as much natural light into the building.
2012-2014 the restructure
As our popularity grew we changed our buildings layout to accommodate full use of the grounds for weddings, family events such as graduations and baby showers, corporate product launches and corporate events. We have been leading in providing events that are seamless and enjoyable for our guests.
Throughout our journey, we would like to thank our staff from the front office team to the management and operations staff who have been here throughout the changes and are with us as we continue to grow. We are proud of the opportunity we have had to provide sustainable employment within hospitality and construction thought the years.
