“Clean Cheap Convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2009

Near the airport, across the street from a mall, around the corner from a Western Union and a Chinese restaurant.
Basic room with clean sheets, one towel and sometimes hot water.
Not bad.

Stayed October 2009, traveled on business

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2009

I searched extensively before my trip for a reasonably priced (<$100) place to stay in Nairobi for my last night in Kenya. I didn't want to spend much as I had to leave for the airport at 5am the following morning anyway. I found unlike Johannesburg, there is not much depth in accomodation in Nairobi and it is mostly expensive.

Whilst in Nairobi, however, a driver informed me of this hotel and it was the perfect place for a cheap one night's stay. It's well priced at ~26 USD for a single ensuite room per night. Nearby appears to be a karaoke bar as I could hear singing (quality of varying degrees!) for a good portion of the night but for the price of the room one can't complain. Across the road is a 24 hour shopping mall with a supermarket, ATM and eateries. As this hotel is right downtown, it is easy to walk around the city. I read Nairobi was very unsafe to walk around but I found it to be fine during the day, even by myself. Just be aware (if you need to change money/currency) that all banks and foreign exchange bureaus in Nairobi close from 1pm on Saturdays and do not open at all on Sundays.

The Terminal is a budget hotel in the centre of Nairobi, just a few minutes walk from Kenyatta Avenue. Rooms are large and bright and the beds (with mosquito nets) are quite comfortable. Drinking water & glasses, loo roll, soap and towels are provided and there is hot water in the early evening.

Breakfast is not provided, but there is a bar and cafe right next door and a pleasant open air restaurant opposite at the Nakumatt Lifestyle shopping centre.

The hotel is a convenient place to stay if you need to spend a night or two in Nairobi, nothing fancy, but good value at 1900 ksh for a double room with bathroom.

Ideal for the overnight budget traveller. Friendly and secure hotel in the heart of Nairobi. All amenities just over the road, basically.

I have stayed at this budget hotel on numerous occasions and shall do so in future. Recommended!

Rates: KES1700.00 single room

KES1800.00 double room
