Warmly welcomed back
I've stayed at the Fairview Hotel probably 100 times--though this was my first time since the pandemic. Though the hotel was not very full due to COVID-19, the hotel was immaculate, and provided its highest level of service. The staff were friendly and professional.

An oasis in downtown Nairobi, still has some touches and style from its early days, (it`s been a hotel since the 1930s), and it`s quite spread out so you can wander through the gardens as you make your way to one of its four restaurants/eating places. Some of the plant and tree specimens would not be out of place in the hot-house at Kew Gardens in London! Our room was very classy, very spacious, well-appointed and with a lovely old wooden floor. Lovely and very friendly and helpful staff, and the hotel is VERY secure, (as one would expect with the Israeli Embassy across the road!). Will happily go back there, it`s `our kind of place`.

This is a unique property. Truly, a garden oasis in the center of Nairobi. Everyone was welcoming and gracious and no detail overlooked. Highly recommend.
