Short Term Apartment Recommendations

Hi there,

I am travelling to Nairobi for 16 nights, in October 2010, and currently looking for recommendations for serviced/ furnished short term apartments within the Westlands, Lavington, Kilimani or Hurlingham area.

Budget is between Kshs 3500 to Kshs 4,500 per day, or a maximum of Kshs 70,000 for the entire duration of the stay.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Cheers,

Martin

I hope you found good accomodations. To anyone reading this thread, I encourage you to not accept ORETITI APARTMENTS on Vanga Road (Lavington area), unless you would like to pay Ksh 21,000 a week and prefer bathing and conducting your toilet out of buckets. We've been out of water for more than a day, and the management simply shrugs its lazy shoulders. I had better sanitation in the Mara.

Cheers!

You could also try Mimosa court, Woodmere . Good furnished apartments are found around Hurlingham and Dennis prit road. Westlands has mostly Indian owned/oriented apartments with some restrictions i.e non Vegs not allowed. I was suprised to read an advert inat a local mall reading "furnished apartment to let, tentant MUST be Indian"

Try Kileleshwa as well.

Have stayed at Arrow Apartments off Bishops Rd (nr. Fairview). they were quite comfortable & secure one bed self catering. Was a few years ago. Don't know how they are now.

Consider YMCA - very central, basic but comfortable, or Methodist Guest House, in Kileleshwa\lavington area.

Kilonzi,

Having thought about this, the many serviced apartments would require you to sign for a minimum stay of 1 month, for economic reasons.

We used to get an apartment, when we visited Kenya (prior to moving), but it was a real struggle to find a place that would let for less than a month.

I beg to differ i know of guest houses that will let out houses for a week at a time or half monthly, and at fair prices approximately 7,000 per day

Well, thats great if places are available for short lets.

Am only relating my own experiences and it is some time since we looked for a place.

Ksh 7000 per day is 210, 000 per month. Really quite expensive, I would have thought - at least double the cost of renting an apartment.
