booking hotels

what is the best way you've all found to book a hotel in nairobi? are there specific agents to use or is it best to call them directly?

i'm looking at either the fairview, meridian court, oakwood, or 680. i'm traveling with three other people on a limited budget, so i'd like to keep it as inexpensive as possible but safe. any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Call them directly, I did this for the Oakwood when I first went in 2004 and they looked after me very well

Hi,

we have been in the Oakwood for one night in 2006. The year before we have been in the Stanlay Hotel, which is opposite to the Oakwood. Comparing the two with price and what you get - i would decide again for the Oakwood. There are some shops (e.g. a Nakumatt) near the hotel and if you want, you can have a drink in the famous fig tree bar of the Stanlay`s.

They charge 60 Euro for a double room with bed and breakfast. Maybe this will fit to your budget.

Try to contact them directly. Here is their website:

Hope this helps a little bit.

Bye

Chrissy

Actually Lynepas it was an awful lot cheaper and the way to find out would be to enquire with both and take it from there but usually in Kenya it is best to deal directly with the hotels

If you are on limited budget forget the Fairmont... far too expensive for whats offered.
