We were joining an intrepid tour at hotel kivi millimani, but after checking prices we decided not to stay there for the extra night we wre in Nairobi prior to the meet up night. Nairobi is much more expensive than I'd expected (over 100$ for mid range hotels). Hotel embassy is in the city centre area, around the corner from banks, exchange offices and a few restaurants and coffee shops. This area boasts well priced and decent food options (for a night or two, anyway). It feels safe enough (as a couple) but this is Africa, you will be the centre of attention as a white person. Some other tourists around though. The hotel is very affordable for Nairobi ($45usd) and the rooms are basic but clean. Mosquito nets provided, luggage room too. There is a restaurant in the hotel that we did not try. The staff is English speaking and one guy (owner perhaps) was very informative and friendly. Staff also responsive on email for booking. I would stay again.
