I had a large airy room with nice hot showers at the Terminal Hotel. Furmiture and beds are ahowing their age, but for the price paid it's a perfectly acceptable option. Close to Museum and Maasai market, directly opposite a shopping centre including Nakumatt. Walking distance to all points of interest in Nairobi city centre. Nice restaurant next door.

The Terminal Hotel is a great choice for people that want a minimum of comfort in a central location. Rooms have their own bath and are generally clean, with few cockroaches only. It is also a very calm loaction - as long as you request a quiet room that does not neighbour the noisy street or the nearby night club.... More

Warm and friendly staff always happy to comply with requests, close to banks, shops, restaurants. Old rooms, reasonably clean. Had a few bed bugs otherwise ok.

I stayed at the Terminal Hotel for 3 nights in July. Now mind you, I was backpacking with 2 other friends who I was meeting with in Kenya. I was not traveling with a spouse, I did not have high expecatations of this hotel. It was cheap, in a good location, safe and clean. I never encountered any problems with... More

My wife and I booked to stay at the terminal for our last two days at Nairobi. Rooms were large and bright with clean sheets and towels. Everything was good, until the night came.. The party from the backyard of the restaurant downstairs started getting louder and louder. With tables filled with drinks, it didn’t look like it’s going to... More

Near the airport, across the street from a mall, around the corner from a Western Union and a Chinese restaurant. Basic room with clean sheets, one towel and sometimes hot water. Not bad.

I searched extensively before my trip for a reasonably priced (<$100) place to stay in Nairobi for my last night in Kenya. I didn't want to spend much as I had to leave for the airport at 5am the following morning anyway. I found unlike Johannesburg, there is not much depth in accomodation in Nairobi and it is mostly expensive.... More

The Terminal is a budget hotel in the centre of Nairobi, just a few minutes walk from Kenyatta Avenue. Rooms are large and bright and the beds (with mosquito nets) are quite comfortable. Drinking water & glasses, loo roll, soap and towels are provided and there is hot water in the early evening. Breakfast is not provided, but there is... More

Ideal for the overnight budget traveller. Friendly and secure hotel in the heart of Nairobi. All amenities just over the road, basically. I have stayed at this budget hotel on numerous occasions and shall do so in future. Recommended! Rates: KES1700.00 single room KES1800.00 double room
