Despite a very short stay, it was a wonderful experience staying at this grand hotel. From the onset, reservations, concierge, check in everything was seamless. Staff was courteous and i was allowed a late checkout. Breakfast was excellent and the spread gave amazing choices. Being a city hotel it feels much different when you are in the room, very quiet,...

The Sarova Stanley is full of history, and not much else. The food was mediocre, except for the omelettes and fruit at breakfast, and on the whole the staff were not attentive. The sense we got is that the staff are frustrated and except for a few, in particular on the door, who really made a great deal of effort,... More

The Sarova Stanley has everything a business person would want to have in Nairobi. The hotel provides free WIFI and has other facilities like a gym. The breakfast buffet offers a wide choice of hot and cold meals including fresh fruits and juices, omelets and the works!! Security is of the desired standard. There is also a nice bar/pub to...

I stayed here for two nights, one before my safari trip which was for 18 nights in Sarova's camp in the mara, and one night after. I got upgraded to a bigger room on the night of my arrival, the stay was excellent, the place is just in the heart of Nairobi city. The staff are just so friendly, ordered... More

Second stay here, and my first review stands. Comfortable beds, beautifully decorated and spacious rooms, secure, amazing food including the Thai restaurant, the staff are probably the best I have experienced world wide. Please do not change anything you do. One honourable mention is the “can do” guys in the business centre, Penninah Leddre, thank you so much for sorting... More

Best hospitality, Best view of the city's skyline Found excellent buffet. Stayed there last year as a couple for 2 days. The only headache is its farther from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Indian cuisines were served for us and they were quite good and delicious.

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have stayed at the Sarova Stanley and it never fails to disappoint. A real haven in the heart of Nairobi. It is like stepping back in time and revisiting the old colonial days of Kenya. Great, impeccably clean accommodation and excellent food. The only exception is the breakfast which although OK is...

Excellent hotel, well located in Nairobi. Rooms and communal areas very well presented...clean, spacious and modern. Staff are very friendly, only haven't given 5 stars because our airport pick up on arrival wasn't arranged correctly & the driver was waiting at the wrong airport for us! The staff were very apologetic though and gave us a complimentary airport transfer on... More
