What amazed me about the hotel was the security check.This is the best check I have experienced in any hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the buffet and the variety too. A good location for business meetings.

I last stayed at the Fairview Hotel in 1971. I have just returned from a 3 day stay and find it remarkably similar regarding the excellent and attentive staff and the ambiance created by being an oasis of calm and tranquility in the chaos that is modern day Nairobi. The rooms are quite lovely and amenities modern including the lovely... More

The hotel is a gorgeous oasis in the polluted nightmare of Nairobi. It is comfortable with varied tasty food. The staff are friendly and very professional. I'd highly recommend it. I did find it slightly strange, and this is perhaps because I arrived from the coast, but it was full of of lone travellers (like me) sitting on our own,... More

I loved staying here. The Fairview has stayed true to a bygone age while offering the most up to date amenities. My room combined old world luxury with a perfect en-suite. The food in the multiple dinning experiences. The grounds and buildings are simply gorgeous. The staff were delightful. If I every get the chance I'll stay here again.

Comfortable stay with very friendly and helpful staff. The room was very comfortable. Nice pool and gardens. Had barbecued goat on 1 evening which was a bit tough but the breakfast buffet was great. Enjoyable stay.

I have stayed at Fairview many times in the past 4 years and just love this hotel! It is a perfect sanctuary after a busy day's work in the city and industrial areas. The gardens are brilliantly kept and a real delight. The main pool and the plunge pool on the apartment side are fantastic and the gym is small... More

The Fairview Hotel was a beautiful jewel in a very busy city. We stayed 2 nights, arriving late one evening, the rooms are spacious and very modern. Breakfast offered a great selection of hot and cold foods. Thus was our first taste of Kenyan coffee and it was very good, with hot milk. The security was tight, especially being across... More

Everything about the fairview is luxurious and beautiful and serene. The gardens are magnificent, the service is impeccable, the rooms are charming. The beds are comfy. The first time I travelled to Nairobi I stayed at the hilton downtown and hated it. I stayed 2 nights and then checked into the fairview. I have stayed at the fairview maybe 10... More
