Conveniently located to local travel hub Wilson airport a stay at the Aeroclub still manages to invoke that amazing ‘Out of Africa’ feeling with old engine parts, propellers and photos scattered around the dark rustic timber structure of the main building. A fairly recent renovation and upgrade of the facilities have done wonders to the guest’s comfort. My big double bedroom was shielded from the noise of the busy road and aircraft taking off and landing by sound proof double glazing. The shower had good water pressure and was enjoyably hot and the mosquito netting was free of holes and already covering the bed when I arrived. I also quite like the fact that in a double bedroom the club provides two portions of creamer and coffee for the the potentially two people staying (amazingly that is not the case in every hotel). Checkin was very friendly and quick - admittedly I am a repeat customer (although not a member) which might have sped up proceedings - as was checking out and paying the bill. The restaurant serves hearty and enjoyable breakfast or just a beautiful frothy latte. Note that you pay for food at the restaurant and drinks at the bar and not via your hotel room bill.

I stay here occasionally as I pass through Nairobi Wilson. It's very convenient for catching an 8 am a flight out of Wilson Airport. The pilot-wing rooms are good quality with great showers and very clean. You will hear traffic noise from Langata road in the early morning - which is not a problem for me because of my early flight. Aero Club staff are really welcoming and friendly. The only option for food is the Java chain restaurant in the reception building. The food is average and variable and the service on my last visit was awful. We had to wait for menus, wait for our order to be taken, the food was not hot when it arrived and we waited for an age to order dessert and to pay. I'll continue to use the Aero Club as it's so convenient and avoids traffic jams in the morning and the staff are so welcoming.

The East African Aero Club is situated in a quiet part of Wilson Airport, with a spacious guarded car park. The Club is very welcoming to members and non-members alike. The Java House Restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices indoors, on the verandah and in the shaded garden beside the swimming pool. The staff are friendly and give attentive service. Their Kenya coffee is always good. Highly recommended for a relaxing lunch in an old-world getaway from bustling Nairobi or for a snack and drink after a flight.

Always reliable and now with magnificent accomodation as well. It's history, the proximity to the varied quality attractions not far away in Karen and Langata as well as the appeal of being located at the airfield where almost all of the fly-in safaris leave from make this a great option for a nights stay or else breakfast, lunch or dinner. The bar is a must as well for a cool long drink and to talk tales with some of the local aviators, also with some of the barmen having been with The Aeroclub for decades.

Having stayed here several times, it is clear to us that we will continue to do so. It could not be better to check in next to the next morning for a flight to the Mara. The service is good, the breakfast was wonderful, the staff very friendly and the rooms very clean (new bathroom) - what more could you ask for? We are thrilled, say THANK YOU and can always recommend the club.
