    Nairobi's Finest

    by

    During a 17-day Kenya trip that included photo-safaris in five game parks, we also stayed in three Nairobi hotels. The Norfolk was far-and-away our favorite.

    Built in 1904, the hotel hosted Theodore Roosevelt a few months after he left the U S presidency in 1909. Many other famous guests have stayed here -- and one now infamous: a Muslim terrorist blew up a wing of the hotel in 1980.

    Room rates at the Norfolk keep escalating. As last I knew a double ran US$305 a night.

    Scenes in the filmed version of "White Mischief" were shot in the hotel -- and many of the incidents depicted in the book and movie took place in the Norfolk.

    Unique Quality: Single/double rooms are small but well- appointed and very comfortable; they're air conditioned with all the usual top-drawer amenities.

    There are five or six restaurants -- the Lord Delamere serving gourmet cuisine -- with food service also at the nice-sized pool.

    A business center, conference facilities, and a health spa are also available.

    Directions: Opposite the university, just outside the city center.

Budget Hotel in Nairobi

by MicVincent about Hotel Africana

Probably the best Budget Hotel in town, some rooms are good some are bad. Used to stay there any time when I'm in Nairobi. Ask for rooms in 5th floor, these are the best, but there is no elevator. Rooms in the front are more noisy but for Nairobi town it's silent. A single room is 900 KSh (12 $) and a double 1200 KSh (16 $). Including a small breakfast. Security in the Hotel is very good, but don't walk around in these area during the night. But from here almost every place in town center can be reached with a taxi for around 300 KSh (4 $). There are 2 TV Rooms. During breakfeast you ever meet some other funy budget travelers.

Masai Market

by enjoytravelling

Masai Market is held in Tuesdays and I think in Fridays in Nairobi's city centre (very close to the University and our hotel Nairobi Safari Club). There you can find all kind of carvings, bead work, masks, etc done by the masais.
Just when we arrived at the market, a local guy introduced himself and guided us through the market (I think they usually do it with tourists!). We picked up an ebony elephant and a decoration plate and the guy "helped us" with bargaining (remember that bargaining is a must, since at the beginning people can even ask you more than 100% the price!)

Nairobi Nov.2006

by cbcloud

Hi
I'll be in Nairobi during an international conference for the climate change in Nov 2006. I need people to recommend hotels near the Confrence Center. Any other recomm reggarding safaris, nightlife, and other safe tips.

RE: Nairobi Nov.2006

by Mwenyeji

Hi,
You have not indicated where the conference is. Howvere, my advice is: don't let that bother you - at least during the selection of your hotel. Nairobi is a small town, and taxis are very quick & cheap. And I'm not trying to be funny - but you are safest in a taxi as opposed to walking down the streets - especially if you stick out as a foreigner (when compared to the locals).
What you should be worried about is the location (and class) of the hotel - which is, of course, dependent on your budget.
If you would still like to be close to the city, try to get hotels in places like Westlands or Valley Road.
