I've been a frequent guest at the Mayfair for a number of years now. In that time, it's hardly changed - which can only be a good thing. For high end Nairobi, this is great accommodation more so for its tranquil gardens in what is often a very hectic city. The hotel is not downtown which is a huge point in its favor. It's close to Westlands shopping district as well as a number of NGO and UN offices in the north and west of the city. It's always spotless and the staff are a great example of how well the Kenyan hospitality industry works. Ask for a room in one of the newer wings. Rooms in the old wing are a little small and a tad too close to the restaurant. Two lovely pools for a swim at the end of the day.
