Hi guys,

Anybody has any tips for ok priced and safe accommodation in Nairobi. We're there just for a start of our trip for two nights 22-24.12. It would be great if it would be close to Boulevard Hotel on Harry Thuku Rd as we have to go there for a meeting and also the tour leaves from there. Any ideas would be appreciated. Also our flight is pretty late after 10 at night arrival. Is it ok to get your transit visa then or would you advise to do it before hand????I'm Finnish and husband Australian.
Thanks guys.

Thanks guys. The Nairobi Safari Club sounds brilliant, but as I mentioned I'm looking something for a budget traveller, so more like Comfort Inn. Might try that or if anybody else has recommendations keep the coming.
And the visa is ok for certain???As we will be there very late and don't want to hung around all night if it's shut or something????
Own experinces?
