The Sarova Stanley, Kenyas first luxury hotel, situated in the heart of the city, opened its doors in 1902. Since then it has been making history hosting royal safaris, business events and legendary personalities such as Edward Prince of Wales, Ernest Hemingway and Frank Sinatra. Today, as the hotel enters its second century, while maintaining its unique heritage it continues to provide state-of-the-art services and facilities for business and leisure travelers. This includes private meeting rooms, WIFI and fitness facilities. Take a seat in the legendary Thorn Tree Cafe with its famous message board, and, like Hemingway, watch the world go by.

217 guestrooms, including 23 suites, each a luxurious blend of Victorian grandeur and modern comfort. Club Rooms offer pure indulgence of deluxe amenities. Executive Rooms have an en-suite lounge and cloakroom. The opulent Presidential, Penthouse and State Suites are the pinnacle of luxury.

Conferencing facilities for up to 400 people, heated pool, health club (with aerobics, massage, a sauna and a steam room), an elegant shopping arcade for curios, suits, eyewear, leather articles, books and a chemist.

Visit the Thorn Tree Cafe, East Africas most famous meeting place, the Pooldeck for Al fresco buffet and Thai Chi, the Thai specialty restaurant situated next to the Exchange Bar, original home of the Nairobi Stock Exchange.
