Spent a night here after our safari, had a lovely stay, great atmosphere, close to shopping centres, frogs singing in the gardens... :) We didn't try the food unfortunatelly, as our flight was too early, but I am sure it was as good as all the service provided!

The hotel is not very big but it's quite nice and cozy with 2 swimming pools and average sized rooms. The hotel is located in Westlands which is not very far from the international airport. There is a choice between 2 restaurants, one is continental and the other has steaks. The staff at the hotel is quite friendly. The rent... More

We stayed in this hotel on they way to the safari and back. Both nights the service was pleasent, friendly and prompt (although the restaurant was very slow with the a la carte on the second night). I did give feedback on the moskito bites which my wife got during both nights (had none during 6 nights on the safari).... More

ecently I was in Nairobi and stayed at the Southern Sun Hotel, the atmosphere and ambiance was tremendous, the Hotel GM goes out of his way to make your stay pleasent, and even has a networking cocktail function for all business people within the hotel on a Wednesday evening. I can recommendthis hotel to all people.

We stayed for 2 night before heading off on safari. Breakfast was good, self service buffet by the pool. Staff were very friendly, helpful, accomodating, effiecient and fast. Room was dated, but otherwise very spacious, good bathroom, safe box in room. Bed was very hard, but, this was a recurruing theme throughout Kenya. Close to shopping centre and some local... More

Had a really good time at the Southern Sun, the friendly staff and a clean environmental not to mention the sumptuous cuisine. Also the proximity to the fun places and shopping malls is quite convenient.

I've so far had a great experience at this hotel. The staff are nice, the included breakfast buffet is diverse and delicious, my room is clean and comfortable, and the grounds are beautiful. I read reviews online first, so when I made my reservation I specifically requested a quiet, in-facing room. Some of the reviewers have had noisy rooms that... More

This is probably my 4th time staying at the Southern Sun Mayfair, and each time the rooms seem to be dating more and more. I was put in Room 130 something, which is close to the Generator, and there were a couple of power cuts which meant there was a lot of noise in the room. The TV's are old,... More
