We started our Kenya Safari with two nights in Nairobi. Our agent suggested the Stanley and her choice was very good. The hotel is large, the room was big and clean, the staff were very friendly. The area around the hotel is somewhat rough so we were advised not to walk around after dark and when we did visit a local store the guards offered to walk with us. There were only two small concerns - there was a lot of road noise (nothing the hotel can do) and the first morning when the room was cleaned, wash clothes and coffee were not replaced (small stuff). It is an historic hotel worth the visit.
