Fairview hotel, Nairobi was a fantastic location for a workshop we held at the facility in early October 2022. The training room was spacious, well set-up and had a comfortable sitting and learning arrangement. The food was fantastic and staff friendly and ready to support. The environment was green and relaxing coupled with a simply awesome ambience.

The Fairview Hotel provided my organization with a full week of conference facilities, hotel rooms and dinner reception. The staff was so kind and flexible with last-minute changes. The location is ideal, since it is close to the airport and transfer from and to the airport was arranged as well.

They hosted my colleagues for a conference. They called to make sure they get the correct number of participants to know the room to book us at. We even postponed the conference to the following day and they did not charge us. very cooperative staff. I would recommend them.

This hotel is a beautiful green haven in the heart of Nairobi city centre. You feel serene and relaxed from the moment you arrive, walking on pretty pathways through tropical plants and giant palm trees. There are several restaurants so you can mix up your meals and there was a huge array of options for breakfast, catering to all cuisines. They also gave me a paper bag and takeaway coffee for the mornings I was rushing out for early meetings. Every member of staff I met was friendly and helpful, I will definitely come here again next time I'm in Nairobi, and would encourage anyone going to stay here.

The proximity to the CBD is ideal, the conference rooms are of good standards. However the quality of food served at the buffet restaurant did not live up to its expectation. From someone who spends most of the time on business travels, you could tell there was something amiss.

After the security check(s), you arrive to a lovely place, lush and green in the middle of the hubbub and busyness that is Nairobi. It seems a world apart. The grounds are impeccably kept and the service is excellent. There are a few different food restaurant options on site, and the breakfast bar is excellent. We stayed in a separate apartment on the ground floor and near the pool and it was quiet and pleasant. Easy to enjoy!

I had a formal dinner/award presentation at the hotel and the Pango restaurant at Fairview hotel was the perfect location. The dinner set up was amazing and my guests particularly enjoyed the live pasta station and the background music from the pianist Wesley. Thank you Anne, Dennis and the rest of the team for the facilitation. Kavete
