TravelPod Member ReviewsFairmont The Norfolk Nairobi
A bit disappointed that the quoted rate was exclusive of Kenya taxes of 29%. This made a big difference to the total charges. The bar was pleasant and drinks prices reasonable. Breakfast buffet price steep, and only on the second query were we offered a cheaper rate (about $US10pp) for coffee and pastries alone. Room was nice, and wifi included in the rate.
