We were in the Fairview Hotel on and off for almost three weeks in December, 2013. The hotel has everything you could ask for: an excellent location near the city center (walking distance) but with beautiful gardens (unique in Nairobi hotels) on a very safe street; very comfortable rooms; a good swimming pool; good on-site restaurant choices; very well-trained and knowledgeable staff; one of the best breakfast buffets I've seen anywhere (I travel a week a month). The WiFi is fast and easy to connect to. The price/quality relationship is excellent; it has been run by the same family for decades, and the personal touch shows. The hotel maintains its own list of reliable taxi drives, which we made ample use of for excursions. It is an excellent base for exploring the area (e.g., Karen) and also for trips to Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha, or Lake Nakuru. The Fairview is also only 15 min from the Wilson Airport, with domestic flights to Lamu etc. The hotel has excellent security, its own borehole for water, and own generators as well. This was a return trip to the Fairview from our earlier visit in 1974, and we were not disappointed!
