Rated Five Star, The Stanley Hotel is one of Nairobi's most famous landmarks and a complete upgrade has revived its reputation as one of the best international-class hotels in Kenya.
You only have to step outside the door of The Stanley for shops and restaurants. The internationally known rendezvous point pavement café, the Thorn Tree Café, is within The Stanley Hotel grounds.
Since 1902, The Stanley has played host to some of the world's most recognisable names, from acclaimed actors and actresses, to renowned authors and world leaders who have resided at The Stanley during royal and state visits.
Nairobi has something of a reputation for being unsafe, but these days there are tourist police patrolling the city centre and it is no worse than any other big city. Just follow the usual precautions of keeping your money, camera and jewellery out of sight.
If you are going to stay in the heart of Nairobi city, then The Stanley Hotel is a great choice of accommodation and one of the best hotels in Kenya.
