Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya

Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel is an institution on the colorful streets of Nairobi, Kenya. A cultural gathering spot for over one hundred years the Norfolk is an oasis of tranquility, with private tropical gardens, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and the legendary Lord Delamere Terrace where travelers and locals alike have met since the days of colonial Africa. Sophistication and elegance permeate the luxurious rooms and suites, and harkens back to a day when tea was served on a silver tray, even in the bush. Whether you have come to Nairobi as a starting point for a safari, or to see the city's many sights, The Norfolk offers guests an exclusive view of Africa.

Kenya is home to some of the world's most beautiful game parks and beaches, and Nairobi is the first step to both. While in the city learn about its history as a British colony, vacation destination for Hollywood jet setters in the 50's, and modern financial capital. Visit the market near Uhuru Park, the Sorsbie Art Gallery, and the Karen Blixen Museum. Relax by the heated pool surrounded by lush gardens, head to the Spa for a massage, or simply watch the city go by from Lord Delamere Terrace. The renowned Ibis Restaurant offers award-winning gourmet dishes, while the Hibiscus Bar and Lounge is the perfect spot to unwind. Complete luxury and premier service make the Norfolk as elegant today as it was one hundred years ago.

This hotel is very special to me because of how ancient it is. It was opened in 1906 and you can feel it in every stone of the building, every picture on the wall, and every detail in the hotel's decoration and construction. Staff was very pleasant and friendly. My overall stay was very nice and I would certainly repeat it if I have the chance. Rooms are not that spacious. But they are still OK not to feel crammed. And breakfast food wasn't that good for my taste. But otherwise my stay was perfect.

Stayed here for 2 days after an amazing experience at the Four Seasons serengeti. We were picked up by the hotel guide/driver David who was wonderful and gave us an excellent tour of the city next day. Our dealing with the front staff were however another matter. Our calls from the rooms were never answered (4 times). Each time we had to walk to the desk to get our questions answered. Internet connection did not work in our room. The bathroom glass shower had it seems weeks of soap scum build up. The live music, piano and saxaphone at the bar was lovely and we did enjoy our drinks and dinner there. Upon check when we asked if there would we live music at the bar the front desk staff had told us no, and that they only had live music on weekends (Front desk staff giving mis information). Good thing we checked in again at the lounge by ourselves. Breakfast at the Terrase was quite plesant as well. If they could improve the training of their front desk staff and phone anwering system, improve inroom internet connectivity and do a better job cleaning their shower stalls I would give them 5 stars.

High quality hotel with nice breakfast, friendly personell and good service - but a business center with far too old and very slow computers, and a dinner menu that really could need some improvement to match the prizes.

Loved the ambiance, however, the hotel service is wanting. First it took 27 minutes (I checked) before a waiter approached us and when they did they took ages to bring your order. the juice came with 3/4 of the glass ice cubes the next time we requested a refill without ice they just ground it making the juice super dilute and totally not worth the price. The food was not all that and considering the price that was very disappointing. Plus they used margarine (in excess where they specifically said it was cream!!) we ended up not finishing the food .I am very disappointed in your food. So in short the food is overpriced and the service is terrible!!!

Comfortable, elegant and a great place to chill out after a busy working day. The hotel delivers on all it's promises and the excellent attention to detail and friendliness of staff is first rate. Food is of an excellent quality. The Norfolk is an experience I would recommend to any traveller to Nairobi.
