This is the best hotel I've ever stayed at. I'm a travel agent and traveled the world.
It's an oasis in a crowded dirty city. The gardens are wonderful and the main building has a homely feel. Comfortable upgraded linens, beautiful spa bathroom with 2 sinks, bidet, fancy shower head, jaccuzzi bathtub.
Since its opposite the Isreal Embassy, security is extremley tight. It's SAFE!
Cars are checked for bombs, luggage is x-rayed, you are x-rayed. flat screen TV's with CNN. Wonderful spiral staircases with great gardens-looks a little like New Orelans. Even the garden rooms have additional security gates and you need cards to enter. We booked an economy room and got upgraded to an excecutive garden suite with 2 bathrooms and a conference room down the hall.
Birds wake you up in the morning singing.There's homemade birdhouses all around the gardens. Hotel has planted herbs in the gardens and use them in cooking. The chef took me on a tour of the gardens.
It's Colonial Africa decor with all the modern gadgets. Free Wifi-SUPER FAST!
lots of electrical outlets & tons of lights in the room.. Peaceful , calming and secure! Breakfast Buffet was the BEST. Eggs Florentine and the most interesting blends of exotic loose tea. I was in heaven! Piano music filters thur the public rooms where you can sit and relax with English newspapers while the fireplace is blazing.
We had a midnight flight to Brussels and then on to NY. We were welcomed to stay and enjoy the Fairview. They checked our bags in storage and encouraged us to use the pool. Pool rest rooms have showers. Very accomodating. We ordered drinks and dinner at the pool. We charged up our electronic equipment at pool, where they had lots of electrical outlets. Lots of restaurants to choose from.
This is the best most accomodating hotel I've ever stayed at. Such friendly staff!
I could live here.
