Fairview Hotel is my favourite one in Nairobi. It has a solid feeling, excellent cuisine, standard colonial luxury and excellent service. However, this comes at a price. Expect to pay anything at the range of $170 per night for a standard room. There is a swimming pool too but the water is always cold (at least for a white African... More

The hotel is green and beautiful. The staff is very polite. Top security. I don't give it 5 stars because the single rooms are very small and it had a dorm feel to it. Anyway, I will probably be staying here again next time.

I thought the first stay at this fab hotel was excellent, however I am sitting by the pool as I write and cannot praise the staff, the surroundings and the food highly enough. We have been served most politely however with a great warmth and a dash humour. Great meal in the Pwani last night and fab brekkie with so... More

Although this hotel has plenty of greenery to put you at ease, but the vibe of the hotel is not a relaxed one. This past June I was 2 nights at the Fairview before I met my Safari group at the Intercontinental Hotel in Nairobi. I mainly choose the Fairview for its OASIS quality to relax. Unfortunately from the moment... More

This hotel is a peaceful oasis in the midst of all the hectic of Nairobi. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is excellent with very good service. Did not have a chance to really explore the hotel any further than room and breakfast.

As residents of Nairobi for many years ( 50 years!), The Fairview has always been a favorite. The food has always been very good, standards are very high at this hotel. We had another good lunch there last Saturday, in their beautiful gardens. Everything was PERFECT, especially the service, but was extremely disappointed at the highly priced, so called, 21... More

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.
