Great Hotel in the middle of Nairobi and Safe

Posted Aug 4, 2015
Pros: 1- Staff 2- Food 3- Clean 4- Security
Cons: Hotel is old property and does'nt really looks like a 5 star hotel
We stayed for 1 night in this hotel and early morning we had to leave for Masai Mara National reserve. The hotel was clean and good location however don't expect it to be of 5 star standard (might be my expectation for 5 star as compared to other places made me feel this). Staff were helpful and friendly and they even had our breakfast pack for the morning as we had to leave early. I definitely appreciate their hospitality the hotel is old and might require some makeover to bring it on the level of 5 star hotels. Nearby are a few clubs/pubs where you can go and hangout Make sure to ask the reception as which places are good to go out and which places to avoid.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Stanley. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We'd happily stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Nairobi.

Klassisk kolonihotell midt i sentrum

Posted Apr 9, 2015 on Hotels
Sentralt beliggende midt i sentrum av Nairoibi. De har klart å beholde den gamle sjarmen fra hotellets storhetstid, når du går i gangene og i baren er du tilbake på 1920-tallet da blant annet Clark Gable og den tidens Prince of Wales tok sine drinker der. Veldig hyggelig hotell, veldig serviceinnnstilte.

위생이 안 좋은 것 빼고는 괜찮았음

Posted Mar 9, 2015 on Hotels
호텔이 전통이 있어 좋으나 신식 건물이 아니어서 조금은 그렇지만 케냐에서는 최고급호텔로 알아주니 그런대로 만족,,, 다만 위생은 안 좋음,,예를들어 커피포트안에 물을 채워뒀는데 얼마나 뒀었는지 몰라도 금속부분에 먼지가 눌러 앉아있어 사용못했고, 화장실에서 벌레가 나왔음

Hotel parfait

Posted Feb 24, 2015 on Hotels
Un hotel très bien et extrement bien placé au centre ville, un des mieux je pense, le personnel est gentil, la chambre un peu vieillotte, par contre je remercie Hotels.com, car la réservation n'a pas été validée, heureusement il y avait de la place mais nous avons perdu du temps et avons été contrariés par cela en arrivant.

Great Stopover Hotel

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: Welcome, friendly staff and atmosphere of hotel.
Cons: Bedrooms could do with a facelift while still retaining the character of the hotel.
Location: Central Nairobi. Didn't have chance to explore 'things to do'.
We arrived Nairobi very late at night due to flight times. We had requested a car to collect us from airport. The driver was friendly and welcoming. He even taught us a few words of Swahili during our half hour journey to the hotel! We arrived at the hotel just before midnight. Receptionist was also welcoming, friendly and greeted us with a smile. This, for us, was particularly nice as we were knackered following a long flight and bearing in mind the time of night (UK/US hoteliers please note that you can provide good customer service no matter what the time is!!!). Sarova Stanley is an old hotel which has retained many original features (some would say slightly out of date) but we felt added to the feel and character of the hotel. Our room was clean but slightly worn, however very comfortable. If you want a hotel with lots of gadgets and shiny chrome don't come here. If you like old world charm and a friendly atmosphere it is perfect. Unfortunately we had to leave very early the following morning so were unable to make use of restaurant and other hotel facilities. We would definitely recommend as a great stopover hotel.

Lovely bar which used to be the nairobi stock exchange , it's also the place of origin of the thorn tree where the thorn tree cafe is now so lots of history and to top it all Hemingway stayed at the hotel and wrote sitting in one of these very rooms ... Have a cold tusker and take it all in
