Ideal post safari day room

A day room at the Aero Club was the perfect post safari solution before catching BA's late evening departure to LHR - the key word is CONVENIENT. In short, we were in our rooms minutes after leaving the Safarilink aircraft, with a short stop to collect our extra bags stored FOC with Safarilink.

Gold Star family safari at El Karamaafari

The Aero Club completely met our needs. The rooms where fine, with plenty of hot water and comfortable beds.

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.

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.
