I travel for business in Nairobi at least 6 times per year and I always stay to the Mayfair because it's close to my office. The place, especially the garden, is superb. Unfortunately the service is horrible. The food is bad and you barely have no other choice but to eat at the buffet, which is always the same and so expensive. If at least they could offer different pricing options for when you only want a light buffet and not the full board thing. Rooms are OK and being renovated. Some are noisy and very small. Ask to change if it's the case.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- SOUTHERN SUN MAYFAIR IS ONE OF NAIROBI'S BEST KNOWN LANDMARKS THAT FIRST ENJOYED ITS HEYDAY IN 1940'S COLONIAL KENYA. IT HAS BEEN EXTENSIVELY REFURBISHED TO PROVIDE MODERN FACILITIES, YET RETAINS THE UNDERSTATED CHARM AND ELEGANCE OF YESTERYEAR. THE HOTEL IS SITUATED CLOSE TO THE CITY CENTRE AND ONLY 20KM FROM JOMO KENYATTA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. WE WELCOME GUESTS TO EXPERIENCE THE TRADITIONAL WARMTH AND HOSPITALITY FOR WHICH BOTH KENYA AND SOUTHERN SUN ARE RENOWNED. ... more less
