Interesting for a 1 night stay...

A quirky and interesting old colonial club and hotel.  Very close to the runway at Wilson Airfield, but if you love planes this is the place for you.  Friendly and helpful staff and interesting decor including aero engines!
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.

Aero Club of East Africa

This club has seen better days! Chosen, one assumes, for its convenient location and most likely for its price.

The bar is fine; the restaurant closed several months before so we walked to a nearby cafe, about a mile away, a bit scary but the food was very good!

One can't expect much for the accommodations but it is clearly conveniently located.

Aero Club of East Africa review

We knew the accommodation at the Aero Club was basic, but even so it did seem more run down than we had been anticipating - e.g. there was a quite a smell in one of the bedrooms and a door which we couldn't lock, while the breakfast options boiled down to a choice between a muffin from a plate on the counter or a fairly ancient sandwich from the chiller cabinet.

It was however certainly in a very handy location for our flight from Wilson Airport the following morning, even though at ksh500 the car ride there was a bit more than we'd expected.

A good night´s sleep after all

After the first shock as to the location just off the noisy and polluted Langata road, we got used to it quickly and actually feel the place has a lot of advantages going for it, like comfortable beds, good showers with a lot of hot water and a good restaurant with the most delicious chocolate ice cream!

We ended up really liking this place and would stay there again.

Our fourth stay at the Aero Club

The Aero Club is well known to us, as it was our fourth stay.

It's location close to Wilson airport is very convenient and as a place to both recover from the international flights into Nairobi and spend the night before flying out, it is ideal.

Aero Club of East Africa review

Perfect stopover in Nairobi after flight from the UK and prearranged transfer from the international airport. Arrived late and the kitchen was probably closed so they hadn't cooked our preordered food but gave us a couple of goodie bags with Samosas etc. which worked well. Delicious breakfast, clean tidy room and helpful staff. Taxi for 300 ks to the terminal for local flight was convenient
