The Sarova Stanley, Nairobi
Beautiful hotel, wonderful people. Will definitely stay again here one day and recommend to friends.
Tish, us4 night trip

I Heard the Word "No" a Lot
1. I checked in and requested a room w/ a street view, I like the noise, and they gave me one in the back facing another building. My two colleagues were in line behind me and both both got street views. 2. My colleagues & I booked our rooms at the same time and some how they got the breakfast buffet on their package, even though our details/cost seemed to be identical. I was subsequently charged $25 for breakfast every morning. When I brought it up to the manager, Steve, he offered me breakfast for $20. Not cool. 3. The morning of departure, I asked for a late checkout and was quoted a large cost to do so. Right after I asked, my colleague did the same, she was standing in line behind me. They gave here a later checkout and did not ask for additional payment. It was laughable at this point. It's a cool hotel but I'll never stay there again because of the service.

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!
