I have stayed at the Fairview four or five times whilst on business trips to Kenya. This is by far my favourite hotel anywhere. The buildings are are not particularly beautiful, the rooms are not ostentatious and you actually get to open your own doors, unlike some 5* hotels where they even breathe for you, whether you like it or not!
But sitting in the beautiful gardens of the Fairview as day turns to night; listening to the waterfalls babbling, the frogs croaking in the ponds, the birds in the trees, and watching the lightning flickering in the sky is magical. As it cools down a thoughtful employee has anticipated this by placing a charcoal brazier next to me - Nairobi is 6000 feet above sea level and it often gets quite cool at night even though it is on the equator. All this bang in the middle of the capital city of Kenya.
I could go on; but if you appreciate highly professional, discreet but never obsequious staff who clearly enjoy their jobs and like their customers; a choice of restaurants all serving excellent and varied cuisines; a beautiful pool; lush, immaculately tended tropical vegetation; trees with their latin and local names on them; if you need a break from glitzy chain hotels and the hurly burly of the world in general, then you must stay at the Fairview in Nairobi. I can't wait to go back.
