I was attending a wedding a wedding in Nairobi and the bride blocked off a bunch of rooms for foreign guests at the Country Lodge. The hotel is fairly newly built with a contemporary lobby and standard-issue rooms.
- Is it as nice as the Fairmont Norfolk? No, but you are paying half or 1/3rd the price.
- Is it on a safer street? Yes.
- Would I stay there again? Yes. But I would first try and book the Fairview Hotel (located right beside).
- About 10 - 20 mins from the airport.
- Because it it located on the same street as the Israeli consulate, many say the Country Lodge is one of the safest hotels in Nairobi. You also need a keycard to buzz into the lobby.
- It is also located beside the affiliated Fairview Hotel. We basically slept and ate breakfast at the Country Lodge, then walked to the Fairview to eat all other meals and relax by the pool. The Fairview Hotel is a lush, manicured, urban oasis in comparison to the chaos of Nairobi.
- fairly large
- felt a little musty
- ok bed
- overall, fine
- fine but not great
- reasonable prices
- has gym (not safe to go walking or running in the streets)
- included internet (i think)
- serves a decent breakfast
- nice central courtyard for sitting and having a drink or reading a book
- Nairobi is more expensive than London, Paris, NY, etc.... Plan on spending a lot of money for safe transport and food while there!
