This is an amazing Hotel in the heart of Nairobi with a great General Manager and friendly professional and efficient staff. Easy to recommend. Had a good couple of nights sleep in a clean room meeting both the new GM and his amazing wife.

Mayfair is a delightful hotel!! Its grounds, with tropical gardens and ponds and two pools, are beautiful; the staff superb; the setting of the restaurant, with its patio looking overlooking the pool, is relaxing and the perfect place for a meal. We had the "basic" room. Having stayed two years ago at another classic older charming Nairobi hotels, also with... More

If you are a business traveller to Nairobi, consider this hotel. It sit just out side the heavy congestion zone in Nairobi, making it easier to get and from your meetings. Its a grand old dame, but well maintained. The rooms, although small are clean and comfortable. If you have read my other posts, I always moan about the Wi-Fi.... More

We stayed here on 3 nights. We ate dinner in the Bistro twice and lunch twice. It has an nice colonial atmosphere. The staff are exceptional. The food good and definitely value for money. The immediate surrounds of the hotel are typical Nairobi, congested, messy but all part of the rich experiences of life. We did venture out for a... More

The service was excellent, the room was tastefully furnished, the location is central and the amenities are up to date. I love the breakfast and dinner, the chefs and the staff knows their onions. I don't like anything less as they all meet my expectations.

The hotel is very good. Its gardens are pretty and well kept. For an old building, the rooms are fine with good aircos, barred windows that open and a strong wifi. The service was excellent; very friendly and the hotel keeps the ladies of the night out of the bar, unlike some in NBO. Manager's reception is also a nice... More
