Norfolk Hotel Nairobi Dates Back To The Colonial Times
A Fairmont boutique hotel, the Norfolk Hotel Nairobi is set against the historical background of colonial Kenya and its legendary safaris. Indeed, it was here that most British colonialists stayed when they arrived for the mythical Kenya safari.
All the 165 rooms and suites at one of the oldest Nairobi hotels have just recently been remodeled and are uniquely and luxuriously appointed to the lofty standards you’ve grown to expect from the Fairmont group of hotels. And, the Nairobi Norfolk hotel offers 7 levels of accommodation sophistication that goes from standard to top-end rooms and suites. The most prized of these are the 1937 suites and the Signature suites.
A surprise feature is the Nairobi hotel’s big, lush, mature, well-tended garden. This, together with the hotel’s low-rise buildings, gives the Norfolk a country-hotel feel and creates the ideal atmosphere for relaxing after a long day in the bustle of the city.
The Norfolk Nairobi Hotel boasts five restaurants, the most well liked being the Lord Delamere Terrace which could be Nairobi’s most renowned watering hole as it is renowned for its phenomenal cocktails. Its fitness center is equipped with branded gym equipment and is manned by well-trained private trainers. Besides the latest gym machines the fitness center offers daily aerobic dance lessons, sauna, steam rooms and a spa.
