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 !!

Always good to back, even if it is for one night. A great place to stay before heading out on safari. Staff is always friendly. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The history of tis hotel is worth the stay.

I have stayed in many hotels in Nairobi. However this is by far the best for location, security, food and staff. Kenya is going through a tough time at the moment and many travels are being put off due to the security. This hotel takes that worry away for you, yet still giving excellent service in wonderful grounds.

This is a great hotel, an oasis in a chaotic city. Economy room was of a good standard although shower was weak and needs attention. Shower gel dispenser was empty on arrival. Restaurant food is excellent. Thanks

This was my first visit to Kenya, so my partner booked us into The Fairview as a treat, to relax and unwind at the beginning of our holiday. We are not wealthy, so he booked a cheaper room - still nearly £200 per night, booked through tripadviser. Go direct to the hotel, if you must stay here, it was considerably... More

Thanks for your feedback and I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. It is a pity you did not book direct. Our rate is only £138 so the travel agent you used made quite a profit! We are rolling out air-conditioning in all rooms. However, despite not offering aircon in economy double rooms (your choice of... More
