Nestled in a park like setting that belies the proximity to surrounding high rise buildings, the Fairview Hotel offers a lush oasis with expansive lawns, soothing water features, a lovely swimming pool, and reassuringly tight security. The real attractions, however, are the elegant ambiance, reminiscent of an earlier era, and the friendly attentive staff. I found good reason to write glowing feedback to management about three staff members who provided exceptional service: the hostess in the First Class lounge, the staff of the business center, and a very attentive and professional waitress.
The buildings were immaculate, and the gardens quiet and inviting. The food was excellent, especially the breakfast buffet. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation, and will stay there again if ever I return to Nairobi.
