Think Kenya, and you think safari, right? Or perhaps, less favourably, you’re familiar with the capital’s other name: ‘Nairobbery’.

But dismiss both stereotypes and you’ll quickly fall in love by East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city. Nairobi is the youngest, the most modern, and the fastest growing place in Africa. It’s Kenya’s beating heart, a giant melting pot of locals, tourists and expats simply trying to find their way round this hectic but oh-so exciting concrete jungle.

Where To Stay

From the simple to the sublime, accommodation in Nairobi has pretty much got you covered. If you want to wake up amid the hustle and bustle, aim for the city centre. Between Tom Mboya St and River Rd, you’ll find lots of small hotels and guesthouses.

For something a little more peaceful, the dusitD2 Nairobi is worth checking out. A five-star hotel, it’s nestled amongst the leafy suburb of 14 Riverside Drive. Six months after a fateful terrorist attack forced the resort to shut its door, they’re now back – and doing better than ever.

Looking to relax? The hotel’s Devarana Spa (‘garden in heaven’) is often quoted as one of the best in Nairobi. Treatments cover everything from body scrubs to massages and mint baths (yes they’re a thing, and they sound fun). If you’re after a comfy but super stylish stay, the dusitD2 is your go to. Rooms start from £155 per night (room only).

Another good five-star option is Azure Hotel, located in Westlands (about four kilometres north west of the city centre). On arrival, the blue towers loom large from up above. The outdoor swimming pool is fun (if freezing – we visited in winter), while each room is super spacious and airy, complete with high speed wi-fi. Price-wise, you get an extremely good deal for your money. Book via Hotels.com, rooms start from £88 per night.
