A nice place to stay although a bit expensive and booking system needs to be upgraded. Nice rooms and nice surroundings. The food in the various eating areas was very good although the staff struggle during busy periods. I enjoyed my meals though.

I stayed here on a short work trip to NBO in December and many times previously. It's well located - close to the World bank and African bank offices ( and opposite the Israeli embassy - so supposedly secure) The staff are friendly and the breakfast is delicious. The rooms are clean and work well but are not luxurious. The... More

Ahhhh....once you make your way through the tight security outside, the wait is worth it as soon as you enter the grounds and garden area of the Fairview. An inviting lobby area compliments the Fairview staff (security guards, bellman, registration who greet you with a sincere "Karibu" (Swahili for Welcome). Once you have been made comfortable in your modest, clean,... More

First and foremost, I had an amazing experience at this hotel and I would most definitely return and recommend. I loved the grounds, the restaurants, the staff and thought my room (while basic) was very comfortable. I work in corporate security and this hotel was recommended by several of my local vendors as being the safest hotel in Nairobi. And... More

This place is really fantastic. Service is great. Rooms are good. The gardens outside are phenomenal. You feel like the place is secure - especially in a place like Nairobi where there has been some violent as of late. It's a fabulous place to stay in Nairobi.

Although I had stayed many times at the Intercontinental Hotel, due to favorable reviews, I decided to try the Fairview Hotel, a very wise decision. The hotel is an oasis in the bustle of downtown Nairobi. Located near the Israel Embassy, the security is top of the line. Not only are the staff are very friendly but there was also... More

This was my third time staying at the Fairview. I travel for work and most of my meetings are in Westlands or Parklands and I am constantly being advised that there are good hotels that are more convenient. However, the Fairview is a welcome break from the corporate hotels I spend most of my time staying in. The rooms are... More

Stayed last w/e at the Fairview. Pool room was very comfortable but needed updating a little - comfy and clean but a little dull. However the gardens and ambience made up for that - a green oasis in the city.....Food was just amazing my Kenyan Rack of Lamb in Pango - the fine dining restaurant - was exceptional. Steaks the...

This property is situated in a business district and is a good place to commence the Nairobi journey. Clean, compact rooms and business-like meal delivery with a nice ambience. Feels more safe than a 007 target !!
