Older than the London Ritz, younger than The Savoy, no other hotel in Kenya has
as rich a history as the Norfolk, one of the world's most romantic hotels.
When it was first opened on Christmas Day, 1904, it was to spearhead traditions
of hospitality in East Africa which are still unmatched today. It is said
that Nairobi as a capital city grew up around the Norfolk. From the new
and old worlds the first guests came, many of noble birth. The guest list
made its name as a legend then and still does so today.
