"Convenient stay at Aero Club"
Our late arrival and early morning departure means all we needed was a place to sleep. We stayed in a room that was right by the airfield. It was very comfortable and clean.
We did have a drink at the bar but there was no food available at that time. Breakfast is served in the mornings but we did not have this." See all these reviews: 13n in Kenya
"Funky place with character near Wilson"
The history and ambience are interesting, and we received excellent service.
Definitely an unusual place to stay in Nairobi, and we were glad our agent recommended it." See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
"Starting the holiday in Kenya"
The positives include a very quick journey from Jomo Kenyatta airport at that time of the day, being very near Wilson airport for the next flight, and a clean and comfortable room. Most importantly, nothing beats waking up in Kenya on the first morning, with mousebirds in the garden and planes just beyond, rather than in an international airport hotel."

"Ideal base for Wilson Airport"
Some of the photographs we'd seen led us to believe that it might be a bit rough and ready, but that was not the case for our room in the Captain Wing, which was was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The veranda and little garden area backed onto the runway, so sitting out there first thing was a lovely start to our trip. Check in was efficient and friendly, and reception staff were extremely helpful (we owe Dorothy a big thank you).
We arrived at JKIA at 9 pm, but the journey to the Aero Club was fine and didn't get us in ridiculously late. Having a leisurely start to the day before the couple of minutes drive to the Safarilink terminal was a definite bonus." See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
"Perfect for a quick overnight close to Wilson"
I had one of the Captains rooms, which was clean and spacious, with a large ensuite. Not luxury, but perfectly adequate for a good nights sleep.
Because the transfer to Wilson is quick and traffic free, breakfast could be a lesuirely affair. It was pleasant to be able to enjoy breakfast with a view of the garden." See all these reviews: 9n in Kenya
"Ideal post safari day room"
"Gold Star family safari at El Karamaafari"
The general facilities were also very good and we made good use of the pool and the excellent Java restaurant.
We didn't need to use the Safarilink cafe for breakfast as we were pleased to find the Java opened for breakfast at 06.00.
In sum, while the Aero Club is not luxurious, the facilities are very good and above all it is a very convenient location, close to JK airport and even closer to the new Safarilink Departure facility." See all these reviews: 6n in Kenya

"Interesting for a 1 night stay..."
The bar serves the best fresh orange juice that I have ever tasted.... and of course Tuskers...
I love the billowing mosquito nets... Rooms and facilities not very modern, well not in room 11, but loved the atmosphere.
Good WiFi in the rooms and bar...
Java at the Aero Club
Really amazing giant samosas and good burgers, all washed down with Tuskers, what could be better? Very friendly and helpful staff." See all these reviews: 10n in Kenya; 8n in Tanzania
