Lonely Planet review
A good top-end choice nicely removed from the central hubbub. The winding paths and green-filled grounds create a refined atmosphere, especially around the courtyard restaurant, and the rooms are helpfully classified like airline seats, ranging from Economy to First. There are also flexible family rooms. It's near the scarily well-guarded Israeli Embassy.
Our independent authors have visited Fairview Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nairobi.
