The Fairview is not cheap, but neither are most hotels in Nairobi that cater to foreigners. Here is what sets the Fairview apart, in my book: huge lush gardens including a mini football pitch that's perfect for frisbee, really good security (the Israeli embassy is opposite), and good service. I wish the restaurant also featured Kenyan cuisine, but that's a small complaint in the grand scheme of things. The WiFi has also been tricky since they changed systems (especially in the economy rooms across the lane from the main hotel building) but I carry a data SIM and USB modem with me, so I don't mind (though lack of connectivity in hotels they claim to have Internet usually drive me bonkers).
