I stayed in Terminal Hotel a couple of days in 2011. At that time it was a true budget hotel with prices to match. Not very comfortable, noisy, not particularly clean but a great location in Central Business District. So I thought I would stay there again but much to my surprise the price has more than double to 4,000... More

We stayed here twice. The room had a door that locked but that is the only positive thing I can say. It was not clean, the water was rusty, the noise level very high. There was a creepy atmosphere in the corridors and entrance. We did not feel safe and would never go back there. it is cheap, but still... More

Well actually I cannot say I paid to stay here; since we just had a stopover before going on to a safari. For that reason I do not have a clue about the price and the convenience of its location; but I could say it could have looked much cleaner. Everything was in order and furniture and so on were...

Good location in the centre of Nairobi and cheap! The twin rooms are spacious and they are reasonably clean. However the hotel is quite rundown, managed to get 1 hot shower over the week we were there, the shower drainage was often blocked and the toilet would quite often refuse to flush. In some rooms there were lockable cupboards in... More

The Terminal Hotel is a good value for downtown Nairobi. We stayed there a few nights while traveling through the country and never had a problem. The rooms are simple and basic, the furniture is not overly pretty but the rooms are clean and the water is hot, for the price you can't ask for more. The location is pretty... More

We stayed at the Hotel Terminal in Nairobi and had a wonderful 3 days safari in Masai Mara. Everything was perfect and the package was exactly as described by Nelson. I want to underline this because Andrea and I weren't so sure when we bought the package for a very good price the day before. We want also to add... More

We stayed here on three separate occasions and felt that the central location and honest staff gave us a good deal. There was hot showers and the rooms are large. We felt safe leaving our valuables at the desk and the staff were friendly. We were particularly impressed with the honesty of the staff, who returned a head torch to... More

Stayed here 2 nights and both nights there was an electricity blackout, which also means the bolier doesn't have electricity to heat water for the shower. This came at a bad time as we had to leave at 5.30am to begin our safari which meant packing in the dark. The room was okay, spacious, looking towards a large mosque. People... More
