Hotel near Nairobi airport

We have guests who are arrive late in the evening from Zanzibar to leave early the next morning for Europe. I was looking around for hotels near the airport and came up with Ole Sereni and Red Court but it looks like they will be too expensive. The Fahari gardens looks more reasonable and very suitable (as far as you can see on the website) but does anybody know the place? How is the location?

Looks like a good place but it is by Wilson Airport right? Does not sound so close to JKIA....

The place is just 20 min from the airport? That sounds reasonable. Will check it out.

Oh I see. So how far is that if you travel in the morning hours? About 35-40 minutes?

Yep. 35-40 minutes is off peak. But not much traffic whilst going to the airport as traffic is in the opp. direction. Best to leave before 9 AM

You want a hotel near JKIA, not near/at Wilson as the Aero Club.

Besides Ole Sereni or Panari which are about 15/min from JKIA, is also the new EKA hotel.

Hi KitikatNYC,

There's a nice place near the airport, The Strands hotel and the rates are very reasonable. For a double on bed and breakfast they charge from USD 110.00.
