“Decent place for an overnight stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

We were arriving into Nairobi airport in the evening and leaving the next morning so just wanted somewhere cheap and near the airport. This guesthouse fit the bill and we have no complaints. It was a fairly basic place but the host was friendly and served us breakfast even though we were leaving very early in the morning. Make sure you have the phone number with you if you are trying to get a taxi from the airport as taxi drivers didn't know the way and it is a bit difficult to find. The cheapest we were able to get a taxi for was $15 US (we paid $20 to get downtown a week earlier) and the guesthouse said they would do a pick up for $18 so that would probably have been easier.

hello

We stayed in the Nairobi Airport Stop Over House in January 2012 on our way to Arusha. The place was clean, quiet and safe, and the staff was friendly. In the morning, before we left, we were served a tasty breakfast and the manager - Zipporah, saw us to the shuttle stop nearby.

This is a nice family style hotel with friendly service a short taxi ride from the Airport. Of you are coming from Arusha the shuttle bus drops you at a Total gas station and someone from the hotel comes to fetch you if you don't already know the way. Breakfast was excellent and nice atmosphere with people round the table. Many thanks.

Stayed for one night there. Although the area is nothing special
the guesthouse itself with the surrounding garden provides
a nice atmosphere. Access from airport is easy (12km on
expressway). The people who run the house are friendly
and reliable.Safety an cleanlines are o.k. .To city centre it is about 4km.

If I have a chance to come back Nairobi, I would like to stay there again. I also recommend that for badget traveler.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are a mid range Bed and breakfast guest house located very near the Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta airport and Wilson airport. We are less than 10minutes from any of the airport. Our guest house guarantees personal attention for it is small with a capacity of 20 guests per night. Our 5 bedrooms are either in single, double, triple and we have a family room with 1 big bed and 2 small beds. Some rooms are with private bathrooms and others in shared bathrooms. Cleanliness, security, serenity and affordability have made our guests come back again and again. With the ideal location, visitors arriving or departing late in the night or early morning have always found our place very ideal. It is also a great location for guests on transit to Tanzania since the shuttle buses to Tanzania pick guests from our house on the way without having to go to the city center to board. We have business connections with shuttle buses like Davanu shuttle, Marangu shuttles Jamii shuttle, Riverside shuttle, Impala shuttle, Destination and rainbow among others. For those on long hours of waiting to connect a flight, we offer great deals on day room either as a package with pick up and drop off the airport and lunch or just on accommodation only. We are a great place to meet other young travelers and the "young at heart", backpackers and mid range travelers. ... more   less
