Nairobi hotel / neighborhood recommendation

Hello all!

My husband and I are traveling to Nairobi at the end of December to go on a safari. We will be flying in around 10pm and need a hotel to sleep in for less than 12 hours before our Safari starts the following morning. The Safari company will be picking us up from the airport and bringing us to our Hotel. Does anyone have any recommendations of hotels/neighborhoods to stay in for optimal comfort and safety? I don't need fancy, just clean, comfortable and safe. Would love any thoughts especially if you were in similar situation before safari.

Thank you!

The Four Points Sheraton should be open at the airport. How will you be going on Safari? By road or flying?

I will be in the same situation as you next March. As I will be flying from Wilson airport to the Mara, I will be staying at the Aero Club of East Africa. This is only minutes away from the terminal at Wilson. There are some reviews on Tripadvisor but for more recent ones, look at the Expert Africa website.

Stay at Aero Club. Fall out of bed and right into Wilson.

Rate is very very reasonable, but it's only bed (no breakfast).... can pick--up something once at Wilson.
