Went for dinner with a friend who was staying there. She highly recommends it for business trips and conferences. We had undivided attention since the place was quiet. I had fresh grilled fish and my friend had a sea food dish freshly prepared. We both enjoyed our meals at a very reasonable price even including the wine. Service- our waiter...

The Fairview is a gorgeous hotel with lovely clean rooms, good restaurants in a nice lush garden setting. We were traveling on a budget, so stayed in a back room, but it was still nice and clean and we enjoyed a relaxing day at the pool, recovering from a week of non-stop travel! The breakfast buffet was delicious with loads...

My first impression of the Fairview Hotel was just how security conscious they were, I mean, how many Hotels do you stay at where they make you put your bags through an x ray machine before you even check in.

We stayed at this hotel twice during Dec '12. It's an excellent hotel near the centre of Nairobi - security is very good at the hotel & all the staff are extremely friendly. Seems to be a lot of business people staying there also, given its proximity to government buildings. Very nice rooms and facilities and good food in the...

The rooms are great. The tranquillity most welcome. The different restaurants serve good food. The staff are very kind and helpful. There...

My wife, daughter and I stayed one night at the Fairview prior to going on safari. Our stay was excellent. The Fairview is not too far from the centre of the CBD and is near a number of government office buildings and consulates. It has lovely grounds which were a pleasure to walk in. The Fairview is full of old...

This was my 4th stay at the Fairview since 2005, I've never stayed anywhere else in Nairobi in spite of the fact that it can sometimes be difficult getting a room as it's often full.
