We didn't use many of the facilities as we were too tired but did go for a short walk around outside the hotel and felt perfectly safe. We then had a drink on the roof terrace which was very nice, swimming pool looked very inviting but a bit cold in July. We then retired to our stunning room and ordered... More

The Stanley did it again ... greeted by name and yet it was at least a year since I last stayed there. Again, everything in the room worked and the hotel's brand ambassadors, Dominic, Cecilia and Elizabeth, all went out of their way to accommodate my little requests, like fistfuls of teabags and creamer to keep me going at night...

1 night - Deluxe Room Double Bed (was upgraded to half of Tate suite - one room and lounge) Location is in the CBD. The CBD is not really designed for a tourist as there is not much on offer. Some areas seem a little unsafe after dark. The hotel has an old school colonial historic styling. Pros -Service at... More

I stayed at the Sarova Stanley in July of 2013 (It would not let me choose July in the drop down menu) when I was in Nairobi on Safari and I loved it and am making plans to go back in September of 2015. The price was comparable to others in Nairobi, location was excellent, and the facility was very... More

The first time I have stayed at the Sarova Stanley. It's conveniently situated in the CBD of Nairobi and it is lovely. The rooms are large and the dark wood is reminiscent of times past. Service is excellent and it is reasonably priced.

We arrived late in the evening with an early start the following day, so we didn't have much time to enjoy our stay (and the gym/spa). We were welcomed warmly upon arrival, the room was nice, quiet and very spacious. As someone pointed out in other reviews the furniture was a bit dated, however overall more than ok. The hotel...

Back at the Stanley after four months since my last visit. Yet again, the staff makes you feel right at home and remember little things about your needs as if I never left. From the front desk to the restaurant staff, they all try their best to make you feel welcomed. If anything, service is even better than last time... More

Good hotel to stay at in hektsik city. Lovely breakfast and the best brown bread I have ever tasted. The rooms were large, comfortable bed and nice and clean. Good service at the bar and the world's best Cosmopolitan. The bar is otherwise very large and cozy. Good furnishings and plenty of space to relax and enjoy a drink.
