I checked into this hotel just before doing a safari. The bar and restaurant have a certain old world charm, with great service. However guests needs to be aware that the hotels rooms themselves are pretty basic (admittedly it is also reflected in the price) and the adjacent main road is pretty noisy throughout the night

We stayed in the Aero Club, which is at Wilson Airport on the outskirts of the bustling city of Nairobi. The advantage of being there is that one can avoid the enless traffic jams within the city. The rooms are OK but are in need of some urgent refurbishment. The place is realy a piece of the 'old' Kenya, with... More

The Aero Club of East Africa has a nice bar and restaurant with great food. The living arrangements however, was not nice. The room seems dark and dirty. The bedding old and ruined. The mosquito net seemed dirty. The bathroom was not very clean and the sink had dirt scum as if no one ever cleans it. I felt very... More

I have stayed at the Aero Club many times and it is very convenient! Location is great as it is part of the Wilson Airport grounds and close to town. It is safe, you get a hot shower, a comfy bed and a cold beer at the bar! All you need when coming through Nairobi. No need to run to... More

Love this place, from the friendly staff, the restaurant, the club appeal and even the dated and basic rooms and bathrooms all add to the quaintness. Inclusive in your rate is temporary club membership and the bar, lounge, polished wood and aeronautical memorabilia all very reminiscent of out of Africa. The wine is very reasonably priced and there is a... More

The rooms are basic but great value, and the location within Wilson airport makes the AeroClucb ideal for catching an early morning flight without having to fight the dreadful traffic on Langata Road. However, the room I had was the closest to the main road and it was very noisy, with traffic and honking horns going til the early hours... More

The positives: your temporary membership enables you to dine in the members only club bar, polished wood and old aviation photos everywhere: you expect to see Finch Hatton turn up for a sundowner. The food is simple and cheap. The reception and bar staff are very welcoming. After a long flight out from Europe via Dubai, it was great to... More

A very useful transit stop, used by up-country resident members and tourists alike. There's a small surcharge for non-members. Simple decent accommodation and food, a good bar and breakfast, with cheerful friendly staff.

I have always previously stayed overnight in the city prior to my early morning flight into the Mara from Wilson airport (WIL). This has meant an early start to make sure of getting through the horrendous traffic. In order to avoid this I decided to try the ACEA, & I'm very glad I did. My BA flight didn't land until... More

Easy to book, a small supliment charged if you are not a member but worth it. Look if you are expecting shiney floors and air con you are in the wrong mindset.
