Had dinner at the Thorn Tree Restaurant. The food was well presented and tasty. The service was really good. The hotel makes a good place for business meetings. I will definitely visit again and sample more of the menu.

I had occasion to stay at the Stanley twice this year while working on a photography project. I've travelled to Africa several times, an this is the finest place I've stayed. Located in the very heart of Nairobi, also the safest part of town for tourists. The hotel is classy, but not fussy. The rooms are large and clean with... More

Had Sunday dinner at the thorn tree restaurant with my family and we loved every moment of it. Alex who waited on us was so charming, we liked him a lot. Unfortunately the same charm was not present at the exchange bar on the 1st floor. The lady behind the counter was pleasant but the rest seemed tired. The security... More

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 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
