A little on the pricey side but the quality of the food is good. The menu selection offers a good range

For a five star hotel , The Norfolk is disappointing. Parking is across the street on a dusty place. It is also small (the parking). The facilities need to be better maintained. Ambiance is not out standing. All this make for a poor customer experience , a lacking wow factor. Thankfully the food is good.

The food is ok, more could be done. Relaxing atmosphere but if your looking for super silence, then probably the techno music in the background might be a tad tiresome.

Excellent central location in Nairobi. The staff is attentive and the Tatu restaurant is pretty good.

We stayed two nights to rest before our safari to Ambrosili and Masai Mara. Rooms were lovely and the food was very good.

We were just having dinner and looked around in the beautiful garden. Beautiful old hotel that looked newly refurbished. The food was not perfect, but all around was very good. Ordered different cocktails that tasted really good.

Great choice and taste. Food was halal, which was great! We had ordered room service for dinner, and the quality was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent, kids ate well here!
