Well, staying in downtown Nairobi is not necessarily the obvious choice for holiday makers, but in terms of convenience for an early morning dash to the airport it is pretty good. There are now many modern hotels in the outskirts of Nairobi, but the Stanley certainly has its merits. To start with it is still a very comfortable, well-run hotel with good service. Then, it has history on its side, with being in this place for a long time - and the touch of class that comes with it. The first floor bar is unbeatable with the views onto the hustle and bustle of downtown from very comfortable armchairs, and the Thai restaurant is a somewhat unexpected but nice touch (reviewed separately). So, if you are looking for a convenient city hotel for business or for an overnight with an early departure to the airport (before traffic gets clogged up) it is definitely a good choice !
