Stayed three nights in late April. Perfect location.
This hotel is a grand dame who is aging almost gracefully. Rooms had nice furniture but were smallish. Our room had a musty mildew order and the window did not open. The internet is not free and considering the price of the room that was annoying. Also they wanted two daily wifi charges for the two computers that we brought with us. When you are estimating your room charge make sure you add the 20 dollar a day internet to the 50 dollar overnight parking fee! Also the door to our room was hard to shut so that the lock clicked in. When we returned to our room the cleaning staff had not shut the door properly so the room was unlocked. Everything was fine but it was a little unsettling and the people at the desk did nothing to fix the problem with the door. They did say that they would speak with the housekeeper which didn't seem right tome as the problem was with thedoor not the housekeepers.
The Fairfax has some nice prints and art on the walls and sit is a very beautiful building. There are a couple of good places in the public spaces to sit and read or to have a drink. The Jockey Club was closed during our stay so I can't comment on the food. There are two sections of the hotel - an older original building and a extension that seems to have been added on at a later time. We stayed in a room in the addition.
Really nice doormen and bell staff! They are very knowledgeable about the area and eager to be helpful. Note: a little Amharic will be met with big smiles as most of the staff are Ethiopian.
