I'm going to be conducting my PhD research in Nairobi from the beginning of September, and I'm looking for a room or studio apartment for the 4 months I will be in the city.
I will be working on research interviews with UNHCR, other UN departments and local NGOs - I'd like ideally to find somewhere with a balance between cost, security and closeness to the area where I'll be researching so hopefully in Westlands, Muthaiga or Gigiri (originally I was supposed to be based in Eastleigh so apologies to those who replied before to my post)
My top budget is approximately 35,000Ksh per month, but depending on the area could stretch to 40,000 if my university funding allows. I ideally need a room in a house with all bills included (water, electricity and Internet) and with a security guard as my insurance with the university is fussy!
Thanks for your help in advance - I'd be glad to hear of any comments or if you have heard of a place coming up.
