Best area to stay in Nairobi before Safai

We are travelling to Kenya in August 2014 and have 2 nights/1 full day in Nairobi prior to leaving for a safari. Does anyone have recommendations on what are in Nairobi we should stay? As we will be recovering from a 30 hour flight, we are not expecting to do a lot so just need somewhere to rest up before our safari adventure that has some eating outlets close by.

Have a group of 4 adults (2 couples) looking to spend ~$100-$150 USD per room per night.

If you want to be away from hustle and bustle into nature where you can immediatly enjoy walking or cycling in pure nature, I can advise you to go to Amazing Kenya Retreat. It's just 30 - 45 minutes away from the International airport. They are reviewed here on tripadvisor. Please read.

Amazing Kenya Retreat is located in the beautiful Savannah Grassland estate, Maanzoni. Sitting on your verandah you can enjoy the spectacular view offered by the Savanna plains

I'd just like to point out that Mama494 has written the same post on three different forum topics... one that is over 3 months old. This kind of enthusiastic response often reflects an attempt to advertise a particular facility and is often produced by an owner or employee.

Though it is impossible to be sure in cases like this, as a matter of personal choice, I automatically avoid businesses with this kind of forum comments.

I'm currently staying at the Hob House BnB - very very nice - very quiet, very friendly hosts. This 5 bedroom house is located just at Kitisuru and Ngecha road junction area, not too far from Sarit Centre... we have been here 2 weeks and will stay one more, before moving into our house.

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron
