Hurlingham Rating ***
Hurlingham suburb is some 15 minutes drive from the city centre, and part of the greater Kilimani area. It’s a modern, unique, vibrant, but constricted residential and commercial upmarket area that combines business and pleasure. International NGO’s, SME’s, conference centres, guest houses, beauty shops, hospitals, counseling institutions, restaurants and media outlets coexist symbiotically here. Due to limited space, it’s largely an apartment area; with a few maisonettes, and some remaining older mansions, but it's well planned and served by a good road network. Its commercial buildings are in high demand due to the close proximity to town and relative tranquility. The entertainment spots that dot the area are popular around the city and are frequented by upper income Kenyans.
