I've stayed in a variety of guesthouses and hotels in Nairobi over the past few years. This hotel is by far the best; here is why
1) direct internal gate access to Fairview Hotel (a four star hotel with 5 great restaurants)
2) clean, spacious, comfortable room with a great desk for working
3) gym and access to pool at Fairview
4) security - the Fairview and town lodge are one of the safest hotels in town abutting the Israel embassy
5) the staff are friendly and professional - always eager to go the extra mile and used to longer stay business travelers missing the comforts of home.
I'm going to give this hotel 5 stars even though I think there is one essential improvement to be made. All hotels have improvements. Please convert the additional dining space on the second floor (in the back on the way to the pool) into a communal area for guests to have a drink, watch a football match and to meet other guests. It will not bother anyone and guests like to meet others sometimes. The Fairview in my opinion closes way too early (at 10pm) - it is almost dead. If you prefer a hotel with more nightlife, stay at the Intercontinental just across the park. The Town lodge could differentiate itself with a small area and/or the Fairview could offer a later night lounge for guests to have a drink and mingle at. There needs to be something to do from 10-12pm for guests within this compound. Thanks!
