Stayed at this hotel for one night before starting on safari.
The journey from the airport took well over an hour due to heavy traffic. Be aware of beggars who try and reach into your taxi if stuck in a que, not a nice experience....More
120 usd per night for this horrible pathetic hotel where u feel why am I here on a lay over and why I did not go straight on a safari leaving the hotel .
Hair dryer even exploded when I tried to use it !...More
I stayed here twice. My first room was at the front of the hotel on the road. Iy wasn't amazing. The second time my ro faced the beautiful gardens and I really enjoyed it. Decent hotel. Good food. Good size room. Good for the price.

Jomo Kenyatta Airport is just 20/30 min from this hotel depending on the time you leave. If your aircraft takes off at 08:00 AM, you probably have to leave the hotel at 06:00 and there is no traffic at that time... It will take less that 20 min to reach the airport.
I advise you not to consider taxi in the street. Do not forget there is a very big issue with security in Kenya and mainly in Nairobi where the situation is worst than in Johannesburgh... Ask the hotel to call an official taxi for you or a "limousine" even if it is 10/15 USD more... Maybe it is the price to pay to avoid very big troubles which could prevent you to catch your flight definitely.
Have a nice trip in Kenya. It is a wonderful country ! Even if the situation in Nairobi is complicated, people are very kind outside the city.
