Compared to international standards, the hotels in Nairobi seem expensive for what you actually get in terms of value; the Southern Sun Mayfair is included in that. However, in spite of this I did have a pleasant stay at this hotel. The rooms were a little dated but at least comfortable; breakfast was great and all the staff we're friendly and willing to help. I would recommend this hotel to other travelers. It's best to get a room away from the main pool and restaurant as that can get quite noisy. The block near the secondary pool is also a newer build with better finishes.
