Rooms at the airport?

I thought I read about renting a room at the Nairobi Jomo airport, but now I can't find anything. Anybody know anything about this? We land in Nairobi at 9:30 pm and need to get the 8 am shuttle to Arusha. Would be nice to just crash at the airport. Thanks for any advice.

Yes, I got quite a bit of info about it. If you click on my name and get my previous posts, you should be able to find it.

When are you coming? I am flying out on Friday, so might have time to look for it when I am there. It is supposed to be near Gate 4 or 8. When I am away from Kenya, I shall have very limited access to Internet, but hope I can let you know in time.

Another thought is the Transit Lounge. I only used it once and found it quite uncomfortable. That was years ago, so hopefully someone else has recent experience.

If you are a member of the loyalty programme for your Airline, you could also try to see if you can use some points to use the Business Lounge at JKIA.

Hi Ann,

Thank You! I'll browse your posts and see what I can find. We aren't flying unti February, so if you could get specifics at the airport, that would be great. I know alot of people are in the same predicament (having to spend the night in Nairobi, in order to get the 8 am shuttle).

the panari would be a nearer place to stay - and you will not be affected by traffic at all
