Other Accommodation Options

AirBnB works reliably in Nairobi, and prices for a one-bedroom range between $25 and $60 per night. The conference site, Mövenpick Hotel, is located in the Westlands district. However, if you don’t mind taking an Uber or other means of transport in the mornings and evenings, we also recommend the nearby Lavington, Kileleshwa, and Kilimani districts.

In addition to AirBnBs, Nairobi has an abundance of hotels. You will find Landmark Suites, Lotos Inn & Suites, the Concord Hotel & Suites, and La Maison Royale Hotel all within walking distance of Mövenpick.
