    The hotel is a great piece of history nestled into the bustling streets of Nairobi. From the drop off to front desk to the restaurant team, the service was willing to answer questions or just wish you a warm welcome. Our room was large which was great! Food was very good at all the restaurants. It’s a great 5 star hotel for your stay if you are going into the heart of the city.

  • 4.0.Fair

    overall the staff was lovely. upon check out i was told our room did not include breakfast. we plan to return at the end our of trip and in fact are paying for an extra night that does include breakfast but instead of agreeing to apply those two unused breakfasts to this visit we were refused. breakfast is not cheap' $25 us a person. in this day and age anyone can do anything so we could have left on much better terms. i expected more from this hotel and am disappointed and now regret our generous and unnecessary tipping.

    Amazing hotel and staff

    Fabulous hotel and exceptional staff!! I stayed at the Sarova Stanley for my birthday trip and the service is outstanding. Richard (the manager) was so sweet and even presented me with a slice of chocolate cake! Tabitha at the front desk is also exceptionally friendly. The hotel itself is beautiful and clean and the rooms are quiet. The location is in the heart of the business district which is convenient. I would definitely recommend staying here!
