The moment you pass through the century old revolving doors, you enter another world, the heat and bustle of modern Nairobi left behind as you tune into the cool Victorian elegance of The Sarova Stanley Hotel. A spacious foyer, with its patterned marble floors, chesterfields, old clocks and ancient photographs all come together to transport you another era.

This Nairobi Modern Hotel offers a wide range of accommodation and services with all rooms elegantly furnished with an ambience that remains as friendly and welcoming as it has always been since its humble beginnings in 1902.

Food & Wine:

The Thorn Tree Cafe is a legendary open-air, bistro style pavement cafe and is most famous for its message board located at the centre of the restaurant. Legend purports that the Thorn tree cafe - named for a single centrally situated Acacia tree - became a makeshift post box for travelers who left mail pinned onto its trunk. 'Tree mail' endures despite email and the Thorn tree Cafe flourishes as the crossroads of Africa.

The Pool Deck Restaurant on the fifth floor is a little bit of the coast in the heart of the city. It's a light, bright, buffet style restaurant with al fresco dining by the swimming pool. It serves Kenyan specialties as well as popular continental and Asian dishes.


Swimming Pool; The Stanley has an open-air heated swimming pool on the fifth floor where you can relax with a swim and lounge by the pool-side with a drink and food from the Pool Deck restaurant.

The Stanley Health Club; Situated on the fifth floor, adjoining the swimming pool, The Stanley Health Club includes a gymnasium and exercise studio. You'll also find respite from the outside world in our spacious sauna, steam and relaxation rooms.

Gymnasium; For the fitness minded, the gymnasium offers a range of state of the art exercise equipment including cross trainers, exercise cycles, free weights, multi gym, rowing machines and treadmills, free of charge to guests. There are also highly qualified instructors on duty at all times to assist you in your workout.

Yoga and Aerobics; If pumping weights and exercise machines are not your speed, separate from the main gymnasium is a studio for yoga and aerobics classes, led by enthusiastic and experienced instructors.

Chakacha African belly dancing; This is a rare opportunity to learn the traditional art of sensual Kenyan belly dancing from a famous local practitioner who takes classes at The Stanley.
