Lonely Planet review

Built in 1904, Nairobi's oldest hotel was the place to stay during colonial days, and still attracts plenty of guests who at least look like old-school settlers.

Our independent authors have visited Fairmont The Norfolk and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nairobi.
