I stayed at the Fairview and was more than pleased by the experience. My suite had a private entrance with security features that left me feeling quite safe. The suite itself was roomy with deep wood accents and I immediately felt relaxed when I walked inside. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was quite spacious too. The room... More

Fantastic grounds, has always been a favorite. Was a little disappointed to hear the family sold it to a South African hotel corp. Food is very good and atmosphere can't be beat. Had an econ room, which had a ton of character................very simple...........but character; felt I should be holed up there writing the next great novel!! :) Do know, however,... More

They call this a country hotel in town and they're not wrong. Stayed here a few times now and had a mix of rooms (most with aircon but occasionally without) and find it hard to fault. Very helpful staff, good choice of restaurants, good size pool and very good security

Fairview is usually a nice green getaway right in Nairobi - so it is usually a nice stay. However, this time, I stayed for 5 nights and was quite disappointed. First, I was put in a room by the apartments, 3 locked gates and a road away from the main building. The room was basic, with minimal charm or decoration,... More

I stayed for two nights in a business room, the rooms are a good size. The breakfast buffet is varied. The hotel grounds are beautiful and the staff is exemplary. I would stay here again and I'm already booked to to return.

I arrived late in the evening and only noticed the security level (the Israeli Embassy being on the other side of the street, this is probably the most secure place in the city). Check-in was quick and I was up in my room. The client booked an economy room for me. These are really small so the day after, I... More

Everything about this hotel is superb - from the choice of on site dinner restaurants to the lovely manicured gardens. Service is at its finest in this hotel and everything is thought of (i.e. breakfast is served until 11am on Sundays to account for a later waking time). The rooms are immaculate, the beds are nice and firm and the... More

My visit here was as brief, as brief can be. Getting to it from JKIA was swift and painless, but then I arrived at 2300 so traffic was not existent. Checking in was efficient and professional. I got a great, clean, fresh, functional and comfortable room with good reception for my phone and strong wifi signal to check my mails.... More
