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... See full review

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.

LOVED this hotel

If you stay here, you must have breakfast at the Cafe Gava, near the local school. Just follow the school children and you'll find it! It is where the locals eat. You'll have your eggs cooked on the spot by the cook in the restaurant itself. The kitchen is funky but the food is handled well. I was here to do photos of people and life in Kenya. The owner and staff let me back into the kitchen itself and the staff were so friendly and played to my camera alot giving me wonderful images.

Functional and clean but not memorable

The hotel served my purpose of an affordable overnight stay near Paddington Station. But it should perhaps be noted in the marketing that you can feel the vibration from trains at Paddington in your room, and the trains run from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight. The room was VERY small, but it was clean and the staff was polite.
