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.

I had a good experience while on a business trip to Nairobi at this hotel recently. There is a colonial feel to the settings, the rooms were very clean and tidy, the service excellent and the food fresh and of a good standard. I had al la cart, buffet and snacks and it was all good. For a more "franchise"... More

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

I stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip and I am glad I did. It is not like the other Southern Sun I am used to, a bit too 'colonial' but the nice staff, clean surroundings and the freshness of the meals made it enjoyable nonetheless. The fitness facility is also very good and I would rate the... More

I had the good fortune to stay at this hotel about 10 years ago when it was a Holiday Inn so I was delighted to visit again for a conference that was held there. It's charm hasn't changed. The garden setting is wonderful and you would never know you were in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Nairobi.... More

My Family loves the hotel, it's a great retreat while in Nairobi. The rooms are sparkling clean with almost all you would need in a room, bathrooms just as clean. The restaurant is great and when Gerald is on duty you feel someone is out to ensure you are happy. Front office very professional, and Gerald (another one) will respond... More

I was trying to get larger room for myself and since I couldn’t find the room size I was looking for they upgraded me to the... More

We enjoyed a two night stay in the Southern Sun Mayfair, located in a suburb about 7 km N of the city centre and thus a good base for visiting the national park. The hotel is a low-rise quiet oasis with well kept gardens and outdoor dining overlooking its pleasant pool. Our room and bathroom were not ‘luxurious’ but they... More
