Shower at JKIA Airport? Or closeby hotel?

In going back through Nairobi after my safari, I was wanting to take a shower at the airport.

I have seen conflicting information about the availabilities of a shower facility at the lounges?

Alternatively is there a nearby hotel that has reasonably priced day rooms or gym access that I could shower and change?

Along the same line - do you know if I can pay to access the British Airways lounge if I am flying economy?

Thank You

The only lounge I have seen that has showers is the Kenya Airways Business Class lounge.

You cannot pay to access the BA Lounge. It is only for F/J passengers and Gold Card Holders.

Are you driving back, or flying back from safari? If flying back, you could see if you could pay to use the showers at Aero Club at Wilson Airport.

You can pay to enter one of the independently run "Fist Class" lounges. I believe that there is a four hour limit and it usually costs about $25 - $50 based on how long you will be there. It's ok and will get you out of the general hub-bub of the airport. There are now showers (nor are there any in the BA lounge).

PJT, you say "There are now showers (nor are there any in the BA lounge)." Do you mean there are showers in the First Class lounges? I did not see when I was there last month.

Can the British Airways lounge be used if you are not flying BA but have a One World lounge pass?
