getting a handle re 3 star hotel prices in Nairobi

Googled tourism in Nairobi and seems a lot of 3 Star hotels have been built in Nairobi recently. I never stay in more than 3 star and googled a couple mentioned in article. 'One is the three-star Sunrise Hotel in Nairobi. Sunrise is just seven months old but already attracting 50 to 100 international guests every month. The cost of conference packaging is an important distinction between the three and two-star hotels and their five-star counterparts. “It’s very competitive and the facilities we offer for such conferences rival those of five-star hotels,” he said.' Has very few reviews re Sunrise on TA. But nowhere could i get a room rate without emailing hotel directly.

A middle-ranked 3 star Nairobi hotel on TA is Sliver Springs. Has 91 reviews and seems fine. Basic standard room on website is 15,000 KSH i.e. about USD170 for single person. This is higher than i expected. Does not say if brekkie is included. TA price is USD195.

Is USD160-180 the going rate for single room in fairly centrally located hotel in Nairobi these days?

Found something significantly cheaper in a goodish surburb according to the lit. Kivi Milimani has rooms at USD119 and includes breakfast and wifi. Nevertheless i had expected 3 star could be got for under a $100 for single room.

Ok... found Sentrim 680 on Kenyatta Ave for about USD66 (discounted price) single person. More in line with what i hoped re 3 star. $100-120 too much for 3 star imo.

Try Hotel Central Park. it is same standard as Sunrise but they charge around $80 a night single occupancy. It is in the City centre. google it and you will get contacts.

Ok cheers. I'm not planning a visit. Simply curious re what one pays for 3 star in Nairobi today. My partner visits Nairobi about once per 18 months but coz company pays they stay at better places. Although a visitor to CT i stay in a flat and have no idea what 3 star hotel here charges. I should check it out. My guess is $70-$120 range depending on location and facilities.

For starters, i don't recommend Silver Springs.

There are other far better hotels you can get for the same price tag.

Sentrim Boulevard & Sarova Panafrica are much better options.
