Hotels / B&B near Wilson

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a recommended hotel / B&B / Homestead near Wilson? We have one night before flying to the Mara and would like to be in a convenient hotel for Wilson airport as we do not yet know if we are on the 10am or 3pm flight.

Many thanks

I'm not sure what your price range is, but I really love the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages http://www.blixencoffeegarden.co.ke/ which are quite close to Wilson.

Any of the hotels in Karen would be the closest. As suggested there is Karen Blixen Coffee Gardens, House of Waine, or Ngong House.

From the Nairobi Serena at 8:30 am it would take about 30 minutes, and at 1:30 pm about 20 minutes,

If you want to stay *really* close and save your money, get a room in the new wing at the Aero Club of East Africa - it's at Wilson airport itself. Also very cheap compared to, say, Macushla House, Ngong House or the Karen Blixen cottages, the most reasonable of which is Macushla House.

I guest it depends how much you want to spend, bearing in mind you're only going to be there the one night.

I'm a member of ACEA so if you need any info, just PM me.

The website is here: http://www.aeroclubea.net/

Forgot to mention, the ACEA rooms are on a B&B basis.

MasaiMiss - Great find that AeroClub... thanks.

Believe OP is working with tight budget, so many choices in Karen, but for Macushla, are quite expensive.

However, with more choices in the city proper, it can take same amount of drive time whether from a downtown hotel or those in Karen. For the 10am flight, pickup is usually 8am regardless where you lay your head the night before.
