Hotels in Nairobi are situated in the city center, on its border and in the surrounding suburbs. No hotels are near the airport, though all but the basic places can organize airport transfers, and you can request this when making a reservation.
There is a fairly good choice of accommodations, including chain hotels, suburban country lodges and city hotels. At the bottom of the scale are some good facilities for backpackers as well as secure campsites.
Most large hotels feature a business center, Wi-Fi, restaurants, bars, swimming pools and secure parking. Many facilities are open to nonguests, and the city center hotel restaurants are especially popular with locals.
Credit cards are widely accepted at the more upmarket places, but may attract a surcharge of 2%-5%. VAT (value-added tax) in Kenya is 16%, but is usually included in the quoted room rate.
