We stayed two nights on two separate occasions at the Fairview. We enjoyed our stay both times. The place was clean, the wifi worked, and the staff was excellent. Yes there is excess security but it is across the street from the Israeli Embassy and I would rather have more security rather than not enough. The place is large with different restaurants and a wine cellar. It hosts one of the best restaurants in the city - the Pango Brassiere. We ate there both nights and enjoyed ourselves. The service was top-notch and the food good except for maybe the lamb, but lamb in Kenya is not very good anywhere. We sat by the pool one afternoon which was also clean, quiet and relaxing for being in the middle of a big city. The breakfast was extensive and very good. If we end up in Nairobi again we would stay at the Fairview.
