basic almost poor hostel. you can be sure that many guest had sleep in your sheeting. place is noisy close to the local market and you will be disturbed all night. some rooms miss even the plugs. not a place where you would b satisfied.

Well actually I cannot say I paid to stay here; since we just had a stopover before going on to a safari. For that reason I do not have a clue about the price and the convenience of its location; but I could say it could have looked much cleaner. Everything was in order and furniture and so on were...

Good location in the centre of Nairobi and cheap! The twin rooms are spacious and they are reasonably clean. However the hotel is quite rundown, managed to get 1 hot shower over the week we were there, the shower drainage was often blocked and the toilet would quite often refuse to flush. In some rooms there were lockable cupboards in... More

The Terminal Hotel is a good value for downtown Nairobi. We stayed there a few nights while traveling through the country and never had a problem. The rooms are simple and basic, the furniture is not overly pretty but the rooms are clean and the water is hot, for the price you can't ask for more. The location is pretty... More

We stayed at the Hotel Terminal in Nairobi and had a wonderful 3 days safari in Masai Mara. Everything was perfect and the package was exactly as described by Nelson. I want to underline this because Andrea and I weren't so sure when we bought the package for a very good price the day before. We want also to add... More

We stayed here on three separate occasions and felt that the central location and honest staff gave us a good deal. There was hot showers and the rooms are large. We felt safe leaving our valuables at the desk and the staff were friendly. We were particularly impressed with the honesty of the staff, who returned a head torch to... More

Stayed here 2 nights and both nights there was an electricity blackout, which also means the bolier doesn't have electricity to heat water for the shower. This came at a bad time as we had to leave at 5.30am to begin our safari which meant packing in the dark. The room was okay, spacious, looking towards a large mosque. People... More

Terminal hotel is well located for downtown Nairobi, a very modern supermarket is situated directly opposite and there are plenty of cafe/take out places and banks around the corner. The rooms are nothing special, however they are clean, large, comfortable and there is plenty of hot water. There is wifi connection which despite not being fast is reliable. Compared to... More

We spent one night in this hotel as we had an early flight from Nairobi the next morning. The gentleman on reception was very friendly and the hotel felt secure. We paid KSh1,000 for the room, which is a bargin in Nairobi. The room was basic but did have a wash hand basin in the bedroom and an ensuite bathroom... More

Terminal Hotel is not a special place, but if you want to stay in downtown Nairobi and don't want to spend a lot of money, Terminal is a good choice. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the hot water is reliable, and the location is great. There are plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance, a huge Nakumatt grocery/department store...
