This hotel has great character and charm. It is well maintained and the standard room I stayed in was excellent. The hotel has great restaurants and a wonderful pool and well equipped gym. The wireless internet works well and the best is that it is free and uncapped. The staff are friendly. I can only recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel twice, once at the beginning and again at the end of our travels. There is a lot of security as the hotel is across the road from the Israeli Embassy. It is in a quiet part of the city and noise was not an issue. There are lovely gardens and a really nice breakfast buffet.... More

Safety on a business trip is not negotiable and it started at the airport where the hotel referred me to KAA Airport Taxis. Fixed price lists irrespective of traffic volumes and a good driver. When arriving in the vicinity of the Fairview we were again stopped at a "friendly road block". Friendly it was but also very diligent. Many questions... More

I have stayed at the Fairview twice in the last 9 months and really like the quality of service there. They really aim to create a very pleasant experience for every type of traveler. I've found nearly all the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. For example, once I was dissatisfied with a meal and didn't eat it. I... More

We stayed in this hotel in late July for a night before continuing on to the coast. I think the Isreali embassy is right next door so you can imagine the security in the area. The check points started down the street! I was travelling with my wife and 9 year old son and we felt welcome right from the... More

Suberb service, many levels of rooms, all of them comfortable and full of thoughtful details. The public spaces invite comfort and lounging: truly a welcoming and personal hotel with beautiful gardens and as much (or as little) luxury as you require.

Staying at Fairview you have more a feeling of being in a botanical garden than a city hotel. You will hardly find any greener hotel anywhere. The staff is serviceminded and attentive and 5 different restaurants offers a variety of menues. The rooms were clean, but rather modest. The pool was nice, but being in the middle of the Pwani...
