If you want a calming relaxing hotel that makes you feel in harmony then this is for you. It makes you forget you are in a city. Instead, makes you feel you are living inside a fancy garden. The service is beyond excellent. The only negative was the wifi. It was a bit slow but can be looked over.

I stared using the Mayfair Hotel in 2013. I have returned 5 times for one or two nights stay before leaving on Safari. I also get a day room on my last day before departure back to the USA so I can leave on my long journey feeling refreshed. I am always assured when I bring friends that they will...

Its been 4 years since i have been going to Nairobi but now i have found a decent business hotel for long and short stays at a good location. This is probably the best business hotel in this budget that i have come across in Naiorbi. Breakfast is amazing, staff is cordial, well maintained and what else you need!!

Excellent breakfast down by the pool with plenty of variety and...

Very nice hotel, employees are pleasant. I have been staying there for a business trip to Nairobi. Hotel location is proximate to my meeting places. Room service is nice. I got a warmth welcome on arrival though it was early in the morning.

Good stay and very friendly staff, The hotel perhaps need to do some room upgrades in bedrooms and bathrooms etc, but other wise, good place to stay and location for Westlands etc. Will return when I am next in Nairobi.

the stay at southern sun was worth the cost and I would always to put up at the hotel whenever I visit Nairobi. I received the value for money through the services I received while at the hotel. I consider a great place to put up while on business and couple/ leisure meeting.

Whenever we have a family event we go to this restaurant for a ribs meal. No one prepares better ribs in Mairobi. I had lamb ribs and they were yummy! Others ate pork ribs. It was a great meal served by Wambugu. It was good, no regrets.
