Fairmont The Norfolk

Fairmont The Norfolk

Founded in 1904 and still the traditional starting point for safaris, Fairmont The Norfolk has been host to European colonists, heads of state, dukes and other royalty through the years. Indeed, modern Nairobi has grown up and around The Norfolk, whose 170 guestrooms and suites provide a well-appointed base from which its guests explore city sights, such as the Elephant Orphanage or the Giraffe Center in nearby Langata. Three hotel restaurants offer dining diversity — try a prized vintage on the cozy terrace of Cin Cin Wine Bar, then head to Tatu Restaurant for premium Kenyan Angus beef.

Hotel Tip

The hotel is close to the National Museum of Kenya, as well as to numerous restaurants and bars, proving a great opportunity to interact with locals. –Alnoor Dossa Woodinville, Washington

It is History, today and yesterday - Still ***** (5-Stars)

Reviewed on: 29 Oct 2017

This is a special hotel, built in 1904 with worlds of history - and THE place to stay when visiting Nairobi. It has been up-dated to current multi-star standards, and you will not be disappointed. BUT, and there is always a 'but'; Internet service is not up to par. During my 2 stays here in successive weeks, internet kept dropping - AFTER my above review, the hotel contacted me and advised that they had their technology team review and correct.
