Had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. Room was clean, well serviced, linen great and all staff were superb.Wifi was free, but difficult to find in some spots around the hotel. Had good dinner at Spur which is located in the foyer, and hotel's breakfasts were awesome with very large spread to choose from. Will definitely return.

I stayed hear for three nights in mid Jan 15. The hotel has a bit of an old colonial feel to it, with well kept gardens and a restaurant by the pool; the rooms have everything that you need. But what really impressed me was the attitude of the staff; they could not have been more friendly and helpful and... More

This hotel is very comfortable although the price is rather high for the standard provided. The staff are very efficient, helpful and welcoming. The food is good, although rather limited if you intend to stay for a while. I was disappointed that my room had only a rather uncomfortable chair rather than a lounger or sofa, for which there was... More

Stayed here for one night before going to safari. The rooms are at bit dark, but nicely furnished and beautiful bathrooms. The garden in the middle of the hotel with 2 swimmingpools makes you forget you are in the middle of a big city. We had at nice lunch at the pool restaurant, fine dinner in their beef restaurant, and... More

The grounds are lovely and the pool area is great for breakfast and dinners. The hotel has a great atmosphere and authentic colonial feel. Service is excellent. The rooms are quite basic and need a bit of a revamp. The gym isn't too bad, small but has the essentials. The Spur restaurant next door is convenient too. Great for meetings... More

The services offered by both the staffs of the southern Sun Mayfair was the best service ever. I really like it and I wish and feel like coming back soon. I will tell it to my friends, and family memebers.

Nice leafy grounds in good location. Very helpful staff. Gym with lots of classes and two pools in the grounds. Good breakfast. Worth booking with booking.com for good discounts. Key cards a bit temperamental.

We were in Nairobi for a medical emergency and wanted to move to a hotel which is near to the hospital we were visiting. We tried out 2 hotels and they turned out to be disappointing. Then we booked Mayfair for the remaining of our stay and we loved every bit of it. The hotel is a very big property... More
