We are just about ready to send $$ to complete our pkg to reserve our one night stay on Nariobi before our flight to the Mara in Sept. I was asking for a reasonably priced hotel near to the airport. I was quoted $240 for the Hilton /$270 for Intercontinental/ $290 for the Serena. This does not include airport transfer or breakfast. We are already spending extra $$ than what we budgeted, hate to sound cheep but it all adds up.
I hate to book the hotel tru another operator because I am using this one for the flying safari to Mara and some additional services and flights.
Are these reasonable rates? I was quoted a reasonable rate for the Safari Park Hotel including breakfast, but the transfer fare is $75 one way. I thought why should we stay so far away from the airport for just a few hours sleep? Am I being price gouged?
