A Nairobi classic. The original Stanley Hotel was established in 1902 – past guests include Ernest Hemingway, Clark Gable, Ava Gardner and Gregory Peck. The latest version boasts large and luxurious rooms and a timeless lobby characterised by plush green leather banquettes, opulent chandeliers and lots of dark-wood trimmings. Rates drop slightly from Friday to Sunday.
A highlight is the Thorn Tree Café, which inspired the name of Lonely Planet’s online community. Rates vary considerably with the seasons and availability, and are generally cheaper at weekends.
