The Fairview Hotel provided my organization with a full week of conference facilities, hotel rooms and dinner reception. The staff was so kind and flexible with last-minute changes. The location is ideal, since it is close to the airport and transfer from and to the airport was arranged as well.

They hosted my colleagues for a conference. They called to make sure they get the correct number of participants to know the room to book us at. We even postponed the conference to the following day and they did not charge us. very cooperative staff. I would recommend them.

This hotel is a beautiful green haven in the heart of Nairobi city centre. You feel serene and relaxed from the moment you arrive, walking on pretty pathways through tropical plants and giant palm trees. There are several restaurants so you can mix up your meals and there was a huge array of options for breakfast, catering to all cuisines. They also gave me a paper bag and takeaway coffee for the mornings I was rushing out for early meetings. Every member of staff I met was friendly and helpful, I will definitely come here again next time I'm in Nairobi, and would encourage anyone going to stay here.

The proximity to the CBD is ideal, the conference rooms are of good standards. However the quality of food served at the buffet restaurant did not live up to its expectation. From someone who spends most of the time on business travels, you could tell there was something amiss.

After the security check(s), you arrive to a lovely place, lush and green in the middle of the hubbub and busyness that is Nairobi. It seems a world apart. The grounds are impeccably kept and the service is excellent. There are a few different food restaurant options on site, and the breakfast bar is excellent. We stayed in a separate apartment on the ground floor and near the pool and it was quiet and pleasant. Easy to enjoy!

I had a formal dinner/award presentation at the hotel and the Pango restaurant at Fairview hotel was the perfect location. The dinner set up was amazing and my guests particularly enjoyed the live pasta station and the background music from the pianist Wesley. Thank you Anne, Dennis and the rest of the team for the facilitation. Kavete

I have held two conferences at Fairview Hotel. I would recommend this place for everything. Their staff is amazing at ensuring you have a great experience whether your are a business guest or tourist. An amazing place to hold a conference and feel rejuvenated by the gardens and greenery at the same time. We actually held our event in large tents on one of their lawns, tested folks for COVID every morning and used masks. This is a rarity to find this kind of facility in Nairobi. Their food is healthy and I love that they use recylcable/reusable glass water bottles, that the staff does collect and reuse at the hotel. That saves so much in plastic waste. Even when I am putting on the conference, I feel like I am going on a retreat when I am at the Fairview. So, if even I can feel relaxed while on site, I know that others will have a great time there as a base to catch your safari or conduct other business in Kenya.

All restaurants and bars are closed except the front restaurant. Breakfast buffet is closed. A la carte breakfast is available (not included). Room service by internet or What’sApp only. My form was “lost” due to “Internet issues” and then filled wrongly. Alcohol is available at the front restaurant, but no “cocktails.” Staff say the hotel is closing for the holidays due to low demand, and then, when asked, say nothing re the actual sale of the property to (apparently) the Intercontinental Hotels chain (intercontinental Nairobi is closed). We have no idea whether our room rate was reduced to reflect all of the above. Would not have booked at the Fairview had we been told. Booking was made by phone locally a couple of weeks before the stay - so the hotel had ample opportunity to inform us of the actual situation. Only a handful of other guests were at the hotel. Depressing.

Response from Fairview Hotel Nairobi, Other at Fairview Nairobi
Responded 20 Dec 2021
Dear Valued Guest From the outset, I would like to thank you for taking time to share your feedback. It gives me the opportunity to address and rectify our shortcomings. Please allow me to shed light on your feedback and concerns. The Fairview Hotel is open for business, we are not closing down our operations. Breakfast is inclusive in the room rate and is served in our Giuseppe restaurant opened daily between 06:00 hrs and 10:00 hrs. Regarding room service, as part of our COVID protocols we introduced QR codes for online ordering of meals. This not only allows guests to order meals from any location of the hotel but also reduces touch-points associated with using the room phone during this COVID period. However, guests are free to order through telephones available in all rooms. December is typically a slow month for most hotels in Nairobi. Based on this, for the period 10th December 2021 to 4th January 2022, we are operating one restaurant to serve in-house guests. We have however ensured to incorporate menus from all our restaurants to cater for the guests’ preference. Thank you for choosing the Fairview Hotel. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and trust that this incident has not hindered your future relationship with the Fairview Hotel. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly on fvnairobi.gm@clhg.com should you require any further information. Kind regards and best wishes Fairview Hotel General Manager
