We called at this colonial type hotel three times during our kenyan safari - over-night on arrival, for lunch half way through and on the day of our departure.
Room was clean and comfortable, food was good and staff friendly and very attentive.
There is a steak house type restaurant attached to the hotel, where we ate the first night - huge steak reasonably priced, and an alternative to the hotel menu.
Two pools to choose from, one by the bar/restaurant and one in the well maintained garden surrounded by mature trees.
Although we were on holiday, I would think that this would be an ideal place to stay for a business trip to Kenya

Simply the best place to stay in nairobi, westlands, easy access to Westlands properties and not miles away from city centre. Wifi works like a dream. staff are superb!General manager is "awesome" for lack of a better word. there is no such thing as NO. Best value for money. Not sure why more safari companies are not using it.

I have stayed here twice...am actually writing this from my room right now. It is a beautiful, colonial era hotel. The courtyard is the scenic highlight of the place: giant old trees, a nice pool, bar and restaurant by the pool. I really like the first floor rooms that have French doors opening to the courtyard. And the staff has been wonderful at every turn. Friendly, courteous, helpful at every turn. The cost is lower or the same as other hotels in the area that are lower quality and lack the charm. It has been renovated so you have nice amenities, but the classic feel was carefully maintained. I'm looking forward to coming back here with my wife.

Room tip: I prefer the first floor rooms which have patios on the courtyard. Not as private (if that's your preference) but great scenery.

I stayed for 3 hours at the hotel. Surely it was good but the price for 1 night it is unacceptable. Surely it is not value of money. I hope they can decrease their price. I wish to go back in the first journey.

The Mayfair is a beautiful hotel, especially for Nairobi. Nairobi hotels are in general outrageously expensive for what you get, compared to most other developing country cities. However, the Mayfair made up for the price with a combination of beautiful public areas and gardens, outstanding and friendly staff, excellent breakfast and reasonably nice room. The hotel is also in a very convenient area for Nairobi, allowing one to even walk around a bit - a true rarity! It is located within walking distance of Sarit Center and Westgate Mall, with a good souvenir stall complex on the way. It would also be walking distance to the museum and downtown, but we were advised that this direction is too dangerous. However, it is easy and cheap (plus a fun local experience - for a short distance, anyways) to take one of the matatu shared buses. Overall, an surprisingly good experience in Nairobi!

Room tip: If you value your sleep, as for a room away from the road, from the primary pool and from the frogs. Plus newly renovated and on the second floor.
