We arrived late at night after a tiresome flight. The grand luxurious reception immediately made us feel calm and relaxed. We were received by a friendly receptionist for a smooth check-in. We were settled into our room within fifteen minutes after arriving. Every single member of the staff was friendly and welcoming, so you feel appreciated as a guest. Our... More

I found this hotel like all on here and have to say it was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The location was perfect, rooms very well appointed and had the best massage I have ever had - now I'm not kidding it was actually that good. The Swedish one followed by a nice sauna and steam after 6 days... More

We stayed at the Sarova Stanley for the first three nights of our honeymoon whilst we waited to join our safari, we wished we hadn't as we felt unsafe and exploited. To cut to the chase with regards to the title of my review. We used the hotel taxi (as suggested by concierge) to visit a local restaraunt . We... More

Its in the year 2014 that i made my first approach at the Sarova Stanley Hotel. I came at the hotel for a product launch and what i saw mesmerized me. The security detail, the waiters and waitresses were polite, respectful to everyone. The facilities in the Hotel were just amazing, for once i thought i was in Dubai in... More

Well appointed hotel, nice rooms, very clean. Hotel has great facilities and wonderful staff, so friendly. Breakfast serves on the fifth floor by the pool. Great way to start the day. Not very cheap but is worth it. They have a few restaurants inside, the Thorn Tree downstairs in reception is open 24/7 which is great if you arrive late... More

Had a wonderful stay. We we're a little under the weather and didn't get to check out all of the amenities. There was nobody in the pool and no one using the sauna and steam room. Tailor and Pharmacy nearby. We didnt have time to explore the nearby area but if you need a clean and safe place to stay... More

I stayed here two nights before heading out on Safari. We were late arriving as our luggage took over an hour to arrive at the airport. First thing that struck me was the security. Our room was very large but slightly outdated. Breakfast was good, with loads of choices. We spent the morning making use of the gym, sauna and... More

The Sarova Stanley is one of my favourite hotels in Nairobi. To start I love the rooms they are spacious and what I find very important there is a real desk and working space and of course a good (free) wifi connection. Visiting a fair in the Kenyatta conference centre the location was excellent. It is just a 5 minute... More

The fact is this: my business trip to Kenya's capital wouldn't be so great without The Sarova Stanley hotel. Period. Already at the entrance to the lobby I felt the lovely and historic character of the oldest luxury hotel in Nairobi. The reach portfolio of stories, celebrity guests, fine establishments (like the Stock Exchange bar) has been accompanying the hotel... More

This is a good choice for anyone wanting to stay in central Nairobi. Wifi speed and coverage was good, lobby, bar and roof terrace (with swimming pool and gym) all had a nice feel and atmosphere. My room was a little dated but it was clean and spacious. What I enjoyed most about this hotel though were the very friendly... More
