We, a family of 3, travelled along with two other families with young children and stayed at the Sarova Stanley for 2 nights in Nairobi. The hotel was great with comfortable beds, the child's bed was large enough to accomodate a fully grown up adult, room service was efficient and friendly, laundry was fast and great, bathrooms were spacious too. The Thorn Tree Cafe was a lovely place to have a beer and a bite. We are vegetarians and always had plenty of choice. Fresh sugarcane juice at the breakfast buffet was a winner!
The airport transfers were efficient but the air conditioning did not work-much needed as that was one of their hottest days. Check in and check out were slow and so are the restaurant staff.
The overall style of the hotel, though newly refurbished, is still largely colonial and we loved the cozy atmosphere. It was very reassuring to have security on all floors. House keeping staff were excellent too. The pool was lovely and heated. Gym is a bit crowded but is well equipped.
Will stay there if we ever go to Nairobi again.
