4 Star Hotel
Kenya’s first luxury hotel, the Stanley has always occupied a special place in Nairobi’s heart. From the day it opened its doors in 1902, it has been making history – hosting royal safaris, groundbreaking business events and a long line of living legends. Kenya’s first locally-brewed beer was served at The Stanley’s Long Bar in 1923. Ewart Grogan, who walked from Cape to Cairo to prove his love for a woman, slaked his considerable thirst here. So too did Ernest Hemingway, Denys Finch Hatton and Edward Prince of Wales. At The Stanley, the stars came out at night: Stewart Granger, Ava Gardner, Clark Gable. They all came to The Stanley. It offers 217 luxurious rooms with private bath, shower, hairdryer, 3 telephone direct e-mail access, 10 channel satellite TV airconditioning, double glazing, safe and mini bar. It has heated swimming pool, gym, beauty parlour, conference & banqueting facilities.
