The Stanley: excellent choice for Nairobi
This is the classic old British hotel that has been renovated and modernized yet still with the historic flavor. Great service!

I'll be back
I find myself passing through Nairobi as a transit passenger and have tried several hotels, Hilton, Safari club. My experience here was really a pleasant surprise. Rooms clean and spacious. Staff very helpful and kind. I had a late flight and they accommodated me for the afternoon. Gym is well equipped, pool is well maintained. Thorn Tree restaurant is delicious. Centrally located. I’ve found my Nairobi home.

Fabulous Historic Stay at the Stanley
Beautiful hotel, outstanding service, and one of the best breakfast buffets I've ever had. The old wood and history of this beautiful hotel were well maintained. Room was clean and comfortable. The bar is a must visit! They held onto our excess luggage while we were on a safari in the Mara. the pool was warm, clean and lovely. I felt secure and safe here. I'd definitely stay here again!

Grand place/Great shower/a little wear
First, the shower here was amazing! Plenty of hot water, clean towels and bath amenities, but most important for this gal with waist long hair was the super pressure and water warm enough for a full rinse. The bed was comfortable and I didn't know until the third night that they could've changed the twins to a king. They give you two waters every day. Hope you'll take the chance to go to Thai Chi (rivals my trip to Thailand) and to the Exchange Bar, where the bartender is a real pro. Ever had anyone slap your mint leaves for a mojito? History of the bar and hotel did not disappoint. The only bad thing is they missed two wake up calls. Third day they came through with a loud knock on the door.
