In the three weeks I have been in Kenya I have now stayed at the Fairview for four nights - the first two were planned, the seconf two as a result of eeading the reviews of the previously booked hotel through a tour company. I lost money, but it was worth the switch.. The Fairview offers great accommodations, food, friendly staff and safe location and atmosphere. The only thing missing are spa services after a week camping safari.
I stayed in three different rooms. The first was a huge room-king bed, reading chairs, bath, huge closet. This was located on the other side of the property so meant using your room key to exit the gated compound, cross the road, enter the other gated compound, and then again to enter the buikding and finally your room. There is currently construction on this side of the property so request a room in the main complex if you want to sleep in. I was able to get rooms in the main building the last two nights, and although much smaller, were perfectly fine for a solo traveller. The second room (73) overlooked the breakfast area and the first (28) the front grounds. This was the smaller of the two rooms and the windows needed to be shut at night because of the sound of the frogs! This was still better then being across the road.
The pool is great, as is the business centre for printing, though the free wifi throughout the property is hard to beat. The variety of food is not bad, and my own experience with room service was prompt and hot.
I would not hesitate to stay at the Fairview again the next time I am in Nairobi.
