Nairobi airport hotels

Hi - I'm looking for a good, moderately priced hotel, or B&B to stay near to the airport in Nairobi for just one night on the way from Tanzania to Entebee. We'll have just got off the bus from Arusha so if it was on the bus route and had a pool that would be even better! All suggestions would be gratefully received.

This is much harder than you'd think it would be – and it comes up all the time. There are *no* hotels near the JK International Airport in Nairobi. The closest, the Panari is overpriced and not recommended (11km away) and the next is a still fairly expensive hotel ($150-plus for a twin room) 12km away - the Ole Sereni. I assume you're flying from JKIA to Entebbe the next day?

I would go into town with the bus and stay at one of the many options around the city, either near where the Arusha buses stop in the CBD or someone en route. You can then get a $20 cab (or a $0.50c bus) back to the airport again the next day.
