Living Museum of Aviation. Used to live there and it is great to see it again. Beer is still cold and the food has improved measurably from the old days. Recommended for lunch and to to see the photos and mementos of aircraft and characters dating back to 1922.

This place is not modern, the rooms haven't been modernized for the last 50 years, there's no wifi in the rooms nor broad TV program, the breakfast is not included and kind of "take-away". BUT: the flair of this place is indescribable! You feel "beamed back" into the time of colonial glory. A lot of dark wood, the a-m-a-z-i-n-g wooden... More

I had work to do at Wilson Airport so decided to stay at the Nairobi Aero Club for the night so that i could have a early start. Although the booking process was very pleasant the experience of staying at the hotel was much to be desired. When i arrived I was given the key by the bar man. I... More

We stay here often when passing through Nairobi on early morning flights from Wilson. Stay in the newer block. Traffic noisy and mosquitoes bad so take sleeping tablets/ear plugs/spray. Rooms are large and airy with slightly lumpy bedding but there are nets. Bar in the main clubhouse is like stepping back in time. Nice staff and good basic scoff.

The Aero Club is within the gates of Wilson Airport. It is less than a mile to the Safari Link terminal. I stayed here to avoid the Nairobi traffic before my morning flight to the Maasai Mara. I was impressed. I stayed in the new wing. The rooms were old but very clean and large with AC. I enjoyed a... More

We had a strange experience here. We arrived late in Nairobi and had an early flight out so staying at the Aero Club (located on the grounds of the Wilson airport) made a lot of sense. And the location was in fact perfect and served the purpose completely. It felt safe and the beds were comfortable enough. While it could... More

It's an old English colonial club with old club rules the bar... More

I really loved this place. It was nostaglic, like stepping into the 1930's, the rooms were traditional, high ceilings with the moquito nets drawn up, and the bathroom just as it would have been in its heyday. Well kept and beautiful. The AeroClub itself was a real treat, evoking again the luxury of the late 20's early 30's, all the... More

I had not visited the Aero Club for a number of years and was very impressed with the very much improved menu and quality of food. The menu was fun and interesting with a huge assortment of food to choose from. The food was delicious - especially loved the breakfast! The service was very fast and the staff friendly and... More
