Passing through The Stanley's revolving doors, you leave the hustle and bustle of modern Nairobi and enter into a world of fine furnishings, grand living and cool Victorian elegance. Since 1902, The Stanley has played host to some of the world's most recognizable names, from acclaimed actors and actresses, to renowned authors and world leaders who have stayed there during royal and state visits to Kenya.
Today, after total refurbishment, The Stanley has readopted its original name and much of its original character, with a spacious foyer furnished with leather upholstery, antique brass and wrought-iron fittings.
There are a host of historic features at The Stanley: The Exchange Bar which was the first home of the Nairobi Stock Exchange and the original 'Long Bar' which was acknowledged by the English Sunday Times as one of the ‘Best Long Bars in the World'.
The luxurious guest rooms and suites are exceptionally spacious, comfortable and give a feeling of being home while away from home. All rooms are equipped with the amenities for the modern business traveler, such as direct e-mail access. Non-smoking rooms are avail-able as well as 24-hour room service and same day laundry and valet service.
The Zen Restaurant offers fine wines and award-winning international dishes. Or enjoy a sumptuous buffet and a vast array of salads at the Pool Deck. The Thorn Tree Cafe serves specialty and regular coffees, freshly baked pastries, pies and pizza with live entertainment every evening.
Relax on the secluded pool deck beside the heated swimming pool while ordering from the poolside bar and restaurant, or workout at the fully equipped gymnasium with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment. The Fitness Centre offers daily aerobics classes, a sauna and a steam room. Also featured in the hotel complex is an elegant shopping arcade with a hair salon, bookshop and chemist.
