The hotel is more on the rim of Nairobi - a little back from the busiest streets, which makes it a quiet resting place.
Directly behind the hotel is a supermarket where you can go - it is not advised to walk around in Nairobi else where alone ... especially as a tourist.
Unique Quality: Quiet, Clean, Free WiFi (yay! first time on the safari)
One of Nairobi's well known hotels, the Jacaranda was opened for business over 40 yrs ago...
Unique Quality: A swimming pool and a good restaurant- Safari- where we had our buffet breakfast every morning.
The travel desk at the lobby can arrange for your safari's etc
Hi. I've visited nairobi several times over last few years. I stayed at a great and cheap hotel (ksh1200 double) in 2002 but forgot the name and could not find it again - it had marble stairs, really great rooms fpor the price and was near a small taxi/matatu station. Does this ring a bell with anyone?
I have stayed at Downtown and Terminal, but looking for something a bit better than that and preferably down Hilton end of town - but still in same price bracket. Does anyone have any suggestions? For myself and girlfriend.
hotel 580's (your price are old .. now: ksh 4200 single and 7200 double)
stanley hotel is really nice but it's more expensive
You probably mean 680 ("Six Eighty"), at about 40$. Downtown, in front of Simmers, a great place for a drink. The hotel's ok but not too exciting however.
I prefer Oakwood, in front of Stanley and close to Hilton, at about 50$. Nice place.
Another option, a bit more expensive (80-90$) and a bit out of the city centre, but otherwise outstanding is Fairview.
Not the one you are talking about, and a bit far away (in westlands in front of Sarit Center), is Jacaranda Hotel, absolutely great place (like a 5 star, with swimming pool and all the facilities), for about 70$-80$.
of couse is 680 's. sorry not 580...
Could be Marble Arch - just near Akamba bus station and the matatu stage on Lagos road. Prices are more though - around $50 US.
