4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel has definitely the old times charm but also offers all the modern comforts. The rooms are small but cozy. The wifi works very well and the service is good. The location is very strategic but please study very well the route as you might get stocked in traffic for hours depending where you need to go.

A bit of colonial experience with a musty smell in the rooms. The location to my business dealings was perfect. Security is also good. A variety of restaurants to sample without the need to go outside.

The place is old and probably needs refurbishing in some of the rooms. It's clean and services are good (the food is quite good too) but it could do with a little upgrade for the rooms which had me quite unimpressed. I'd only recommend if you want to stay in Nairobi town CBD since its very safe and secure.

It was an extraordinary experience for me to stay in Sarova Stanley.Rooms are clean and well big enough designed by English furniture. Staff is excellent willing to helpful, always smiling. Breakfast is well enough with fruits, delicatessen and pastry selections and of course Kenyan coffee. A city center hotel is close to all banks, restaurants,shopping malls and night clubs.You may...

We had a great stay at Starova Stanley during our trip to Nairobi. Not only staff and ambience was great; Walking through rooms and corridors of this hotel was an amazing lesson of history of Nairobi and Kenya. The best choice if you want to start learning about country of your visit already at the hotel!!!!!!

I recently stayed at The Sarova Stanley Nairobi Hotel during a trip to Kenya. An elegant and classic hotel, it is well located in the city of Nairobi. The staff were very attentive and efficiently dealt with all matters presented to them. The facilities are great and my stay was excellent. Highly recommended

The best hotel I have been so far in Nairobi. Professional staff, Thai restaurant is impressive. Quite, elegant and full of history!!! You cannot miss it if you really want to grasp the historical atmosphere of the real Nairobi!. Great conference facilities, heated pool and neat drink bar. Highly recommended.

I have been to The Sarova Stanley on numerous occasions either as a conference organizer or as a participant to a conference and I have never been disappointed. The service is great and they pay attention to detail. They are very generous in serving guests with fresh fruit. You can never go wrong here.

We did a stopover on the way back from Tanzania and decided to explore this beautiful city. From the moment we arrived at the airport to be welcomed with cold towels and the offer of chilled drinks in the car, we felt at home at The Stanley. Every member of the team made us welcome and couldn't have done more... More
