nairobi hotel near airport

Hi everyone,

Wife and I going on safari then to Pinewood for a few days. We need a hotel in Nairobi but we won't get there until late and have to be up next morning early as our Virgin flight leaves around 7.30 am. Thus would like somewhere reasonably close to airport, anyone any suggestions?

I had a similar problem. I arrived in the evening and had a plane the next morning at 8am. There is an expensive hotel near to the Airport (Panari?), but friends found me the Bounty Hotel, which was 3000/- single B and B and 600/- for the taxi. They gave me a huge breakfast in the room very early and I was fine. It would have been cheaper to go into the City, but that meant getting up earlier and a more expensive taxi, so it balanced out.

I can look for more info for you. When do you need it?

Sorry, I think the taxi was 800/- not 600/-.

Here is the information from my earlier post.

I wasn't there long enough to find out much about the hotel. My room had a 4'6" bed - double!! Also an instant hot shower and a TV with no remote. I asked for the remote and it didn't work until I changed the batteries round!!!

It seemed to be a hotel used by business people - a secure compound.

The Bounty Hotel, Mukoma Road, South B

PO Box 75200 Nairobi

Tel +254 20 650847 Fax 650858

e-mail thebountyhotel@odysseyhotels.com

The breakfast was brought to my room at 6am. It was a very full cooked breakfast!

B and B was 3000/-

the taxi was Jimcab

info@jimcab.co.ke or reseravtions@jimcab.co.ke

I have found jimcab very reliable on a number of occasions.

Hope this helps.

The Panari is nearer to the Airport, but MUCH more expensive. Look at the Trip Advisor reviews. There is one good one.....

I'd trust Anne's (Asifiwe) judgement but if you are hsitant try the Panafric

Thanks, Harvey!!

The Panafric is MUCH further, so you have to get up too early. That's why I didn't use my usual, ACK Guest House.

Thanks all, have booked the Bounty and Jimcab (very rapid response). they've quoted 1000 Ksh each way, still a lot cheaper than hotel which quoted $30 each way!
