A nice club with nice exhibition relics and with a great view over the apron and runway from the Wilson airport great food and the offer rooms too for 10000 Ksh per night for a double room and with the pool access which us normally exclusive reserved for club members

We stayed overnight in the “new” block, new apparently meaning post WW2. Basic care-worn verging on original shabby chic accommodation, but perfectly adequate for an overnight stopover, with clean room, an excellent breakfast and prompt friendly service. This is the only viable option (other than booking an Uber helicopter!), if like us, you have to stay overnight between a long-haul...

We only stayed here for a few hours in between landing in Nairobi at midnight and leaving from Wilson Airport at 9am the next morning. One can not beat the proximity to Wilson Airport as you are essentially staying right in the airport. Rooms were dated but comfortable enough. Mosquito netting, clean drinking water and comfortable beds. Can not really...

Its location right on Wilson airport can't be beat, particularly with the awful Nairobi traffic. The bar truly does come from the early 20th century, and the patio and garden areas are wonderful in the evening or for breakfast. The service is very warm, friendly and casual. The place is unique, and for the hardy the perfect place to begin...

Over the years we have stayed overnight in Nairobi at other hotels in the city and in the suburbs around Karen and then struggled through the dreadful traffic to Wilson Airfield. The East Africa Aero Club makes it very easy to arrive in time to catch your early morning flight. This is why I give it 5 stars for location...

Living Museum of Aviation. Used to live there and it is great to see it again. Beer is still cold and the food has improved measurably from the old days. Recommended for lunch and to to see the photos and mementos of aircraft and characters dating back to 1922.

This place is not modern, the rooms haven't been modernized for the last 50 years, there's no wifi in the rooms nor broad TV program, the breakfast is not included and kind of "take-away". BUT: the flair of this place is indescribable! You feel "beamed back" into the time of colonial glory. A lot of dark wood, the a-m-a-z-i-n-g wooden...

I had work to do at Wilson Airport so decided to stay at the Nairobi Aero Club for the night so that i could have a early start. Although the booking process was very pleasant the experience of staying at the hotel was much to be desired. When i arrived I was given the key by the bar man. I...

We stay here often when passing through Nairobi on early morning flights from Wilson. Stay in the newer block. Traffic noisy and mosquitoes bad so take sleeping tablets/ear plugs/spray. Rooms are large and airy with slightly lumpy bedding but there are nets. Bar in the main clubhouse is like stepping back in time. Nice staff and good basic scoff.

“I was in rooms 1 and 2, in what looks like the oldest block and closest to the road. Maybe pay up a bit and stay in the newer rooms?”
