We stayed here three different times over three weeks in late Sept., early Oct. This is an excellent place to stay. We had business class rooms each time at a cost of about US$180 I think. My wife had a work assignment in Nairobi and her contacts recommended the Fairview. Later in the trip, before and after safari, we had no desire to stay any place else. An interesting point, the rooms are not air conditioned because it is not needed.
Our rooms were large and comfortable. All beds were firm and comfortable, not hard. The hotel is beautiful. A large old hotel that is completely modern. Grounds like beautiful gardens, beautiful pool area. There are 5 restaurants. We used 3 of them repeatedly, all of the food ranged between very good to excellent. The breakfast buffet was huge and excellent.
We loved the location, very quiet and peaceful. Repeated airport pickups arranged by the hotel were reasonably priced and flawless.
Despite all of the superlatives above, the absolute best thing about this hotel for us was the people. Every waiter, every bellhop, every reception person was excellent. They remembered us each time we returned and warmly welcomed us.
We think this is an absolutely grand place to stay.
