I've stayed here multiple times this year while in Nairobi for work and it's been fantastic each time. The rooms and bathrooms are updated and impeccably clean. The food has always been delicious and service attentive without being overbearing. Being able to sit in the gardens while eating and/or working is priceless- much better than coming back from a long...

Fairview and the adjacent TownLodge are perfect when you are on a business trip. Great service, conference rooms, restaurants - we left very satisfied! A special thanks to the Banqueting Co-ordinators that coordinated our meeting room bookings.

I recently ran a week long training course for 25 people in the fairview. The conferencing team, Anne and George were among the best guest service staff I have ever worked with. The accommodation and facilities were also great. Highly recommended.

We needed a hotel for three nights in Nairobi on business and needed somewhere secure for women travelling alone. This hotel certainly matched the brief - right opposite the Israeli embassy. We didn't have much downtime to use the facilities but the hotel is set in very nice gardens and there are several places to eat and a small gift...
