Everything is good but too pricey.
Mohd from Malaysia

We stopped for one night at the hotel after a full week Safari in Tanzania before heading to parks in Kenya. The hotel was very helpful in providing us with a charming colonial hotel to recharge before heading back out into the bush.

Breakfast was good, many varieties. Internet was super slow at night. Swimming pool at its best. Staff attentive and polite. Room carpet abit dusty and old.

Fantastic stay. Lovely accommodation. Great food. friendly staff. It is worth the extra expense - especially after coming off of a 3 week camping trip. Highly recommended.

Attentive services.House keeping is top of the note. Excellent location, right in the center of CBD Old fashion hotel but in a good stage of maintenance. Delicious breakfast menu. Highly recommended to anyone who stopover in Nairobi.

    Superb customer service”
    The Sarova Stanley could not have provided better customer service for us. Both times we stayed (at the start and end of our safari) the staff were incredibly polite, friendly and helpful. We checked in quickly and the rooms were lovely, with thoughtful touches for our honeymoon. The 1902 lounge was wonderful and the staff up there were super: attentive, yet discreet. The evening buffet in the Lounge was delicious. Highly recommended as a safe, convenient place to stay in Nairobi: a 5* experience.

    A great Choice”
    I stayed in this hotel 40 years ago and was somewhat in a nostalgic mood to see if it had lost it's charm. Not only was I not disappointed but I was pleasantly surprised that in some respects it was better than my memories. My primary reason for this accolade was because the staff at the hotel was exceptional. From the doormen to the reception and the management it can only be stated that they were collectively 'more than a touch of class'.

    Classic historic hotel hits the spot”
    My first time. Always wanted to stay there due to the historical significance. I used the airport transfer which was greatly appreciated, and very efficient. They picked me up in a Mercedes sedan! 30 dollars. Bargain compared to chancing a taxi or other dodgy. The hotel is very nice. Rooms have been updated recently, but still maintain the historic feel. Room was large and comfortable. Staff is fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. The only challenge is the central business district is not so safe anymore, so you can not go for an evening stroll. But they have a gym... Thorn Tree Cafe is great, also historic. This was Hemingway's hangout. Give it a try!

    Interiors, swimming pools and good gym
    The hotel gave me a mini feel of Titanic. the interiors are recreated like the 1920's . The internet was fast and easy to connect. The morning breakfast is a wide spread. The swimming pool is warm always and the spa and the gym is worth the time spent.

    Over booking even payment in advance required”
    I paid one night room charge in advance and checked availability and got confirmation through the Agoda. Even though when we checked in, front person shamelessly told us fully booked and predecessor occupant did not move, so please shift t other Sarova hotel. I lost my face to colleagues. Never stay there,

    Staff, Staff, Facilities,
    Thank you to your many wonderful staff who made my stay truly the best part about my trip to Kenya. George collected me from the airport and was a consummate professional. Nicolette massaged away my stresses like magic. Everyone I came across in the hotel and restaurants was extremely gracious in their service and manner. They anticipated my every need and made my stay amazing. Thank you!!

    Absolutely brilliant - after 6 weeks in the bush it was nice to be in a Hotel with fantastic service. There was a misunderstanding with the Pick-up service and I was not picked up but they certainly made up for it in other ways to ensure I was satisfied during my stay. Would definitely return.

    Great, this is the best hotel in Nairobi”
    The best things are the quality of the restaurants, the good nature of the staff and that for an old, historic, hotel it is so well maintained
    This is about the sixth time my wife and I were there. We go back because it is simply the best especially considering the price is reasonable for Nairobi. People say that the city centre is a bad place to stay. This is true but it is worth a little inconvenience for the quality - and Nairobi has terrible traffic jams everywhere. Thorn Tree and Thai restaurants are very high quality - well worth the trip into town.

    incredible history, wonderful breakfast, friendly staff
    Would not even look elsewhere when we return to Narobi, this is a fantastic hotel. Rooms are older and not overly modern, but the size was enormous and the history of hotel fascinating. Buffet breakfast was the best I have ever experienced, including bubbles and salmon bellinis to start. Staff very welcoming and hospitable. What a great stay!

    Quiet and comfortable.”
    High security both outside and inside the hotel, English speaking staff and well trained and helpful staff.
    My daughter and I stayed three nights, Saturday, Thursday and Friday enjoying a safari mid week. On our first night we had a lovely large room with a bowl of fruit and pretty towel display with rose petals on the bed. When we returned after the safari we were given a much smaller room without fruit or pretty towel display. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay. Felt very safe with security guard on each floor and wonderful staff. The next question doesn't apply because after clearing security we were herded into marquees with only water to drink.

The next question is about the return journey. I did not buy any duty free at Nairobi airport as I was stuck in a marquee for 5 hours with only bottles of water available.

    good service, early breakfast,
    Service was superb, attentive, friendly staff. Great that breakfast is available for very early check out, often needed when catching an early flight. Very comfortable classy bar. Everything one would expect from a luxury hotel. EXCEPT there was no hot water. And only an apology for that at check out. The internet also did not work. Otherwise a good experience, old world charm, a bit pricey though.
