Great Location, Excellent Hotel & Food

The Stanley is superb in every aspect, the rooms are spacious and luxurious, we had room service and I must admit the Thai food was some of the best I've every had. The staff were friendly and went out of their ways to accommodate our needs. Thanks for a great stay, hope to be back soon!!

Nice hotel, Amazing Service with Standout Thai Restaurant

The hotel is in a historic building, so it's a little on the dated side, but rooms were large and clean. The food and service make up for it though - one of the best thai meals we've ever had and the free breakfast buffet is quite a spread with lots of tasty varieties. A good stay for one night before heading on safari.

Great deal for the money

This is right downtown in city center so it is a good location. Food, spa and room were great. The only suggestion I would make if you're looking to book here is to request a room on as high a floor as you can. We were on the 3rd and it was uncomfortably loud from the downtown hustle.

The Stanley in Nairobi offers value

We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of this hotel. Everything was simply perfect...the room, the bed, the bath, the service, the food. We couldn't have asked for more.

Excellent stay

The Sarova Stanley is an interesting departure from your big brands. Too large to qualify as a boutique hotel. But unique and interesting. The service is all-around is excellent. Comfortable, large room. Everything is spotless. The Thai restaurant is great if a bit pricey. Breakfast is very pleasant. Workout room is quite adequate. I found the staff to be very responsive to any request. I made a complaint about the music in the pool restaurant and they were falling over themselves trying to figure out how to satisfy me. Highly recommended.

Avoid the restaurants at the Hilton two blocks away. Not many other choices in walking distance.

Central Nairobi

The hotel is centrally located with taxi stands right outside and other public transportations around the corner. Wifi is present but it could be spotty sometimes. Breakfast and service is great but it is a bit expensive.

This is an excellent hotel, however

This is an excellent hotel, however it is opposite a noisy bar with music playing loudly into the early hours. Due to the Police negligence in maintaining the noise polution laws, if you are a light sleeper this is a problem.

The Hotel combines five star design

The Hotel combines five star design and aspirations with African charm and friendliness. Does always deliver to 5 star quality - but a marginal lack of 5 Star efficiency is more than compensated for by the positive and courteous attitude of all members of staff who were by the way all immaculately attired at all times A very enjoyable stay
