I've stayed at the Southern Sun Mayfair 4 times for work. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, the staff professional, nice and responsive. The breakfast and gym are good.
Even though the hotel is very nice, the rates are a bit excessive for what it is (USD299/night). Also, the dinner menu is a bit limited (especially if you're a vegetarian), and the water bottles provided are ridiculously small (and wasteful).
I would definitely recommend this hotel, assuming your budget allows for it.

THE HOTEL IS SITUATED CLOSE TO THE CITY CENTRE AND ONLY 20KM FROM JOMO KENYATTA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. WE WELCOME GUESTS TO EXPERIENCE THE TRADITIONAL WARMTH AND HOSPITALITY FOR WHICH BOTH KENYA AND SOUTHERN SUN ARE RENOWNED. ... more less
