Fairview Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Nairobi. It is very quiet and safe. The building is an old one, very clean with lots of character and charm, they have added a newer section in recent years. The service is consistently excellent and food very tasty, nicely prepared and presented. I have stayed here several times and also have eaten here on various occasions while staying in apartments in Nairobi - anniversary and birthday. The staff takes great care of the guests. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful quiet gardens. The pool is very clean and up to date. The hotel is accessible to the Central Business District and is across the street from the Israeli Embassy. Nairobi General Hospital is near, as well.

Room Tip: I have always stayed in the older, original part because I love the charm.

The Fairview is my favorite hotel in Nairobi, as it is just a beautiful property- so lush and relaxing after a stressful day of meetings. The staff is outstanding- goes out of their way to make sure you are happy and the business center is very accommodating. We held small meetings there and they were just as helpful as if I was holding a large meeting. Food is great and locally sourced, even from the hotel garden - the Halloumi salad is the BEST!

Room Tip: their is usually music by the pool in the evenings

I enjoyed my stay here very much. The rooms are clean and very comfortable (especially the bed). Breakfast is served buffet style and was delicious. There are many restaurants to on site to choose from though they are a bit pricey. The gardens are beautiful and well kept.

The Fairview Hotel is an oasis in the middle of the city of Nairobi! The grounds of the hotel were beautiful, and filled with lush gardens and greenery. We arrived on a Tuesday night when the hotel hosts a wine tasting along with a live jazz band. We had our delicious dinner outside near the pool where we could tap our feet along to the music. Our room was spacious, safe and quiet for a good night's sleep. The staff were helpful and extremely pleasant! I cannot recommend this hotel enough!
