Where to stay in Nairobi

You'll have plenty of lodgings to choose from for your stay in Nairobi, as the city boasts various accommodation options, largely concentrated in the center, near the main railway station. Budget-constrained visitors can opt for camping or a dormitory-style establishment, while those wanting luxury can look farther away from downtown and choose a hotel or apartment in a tranquil, verdant setting. Nairobi offers tourists a variety of mid-market accommodations, including chains, business hotels, and peaceful suburban resorts.
