Good location for both airports some rooms have nice views over the national park which we were lucky to have. The hotel its self is very nice with good facilities however it is severley let down by incompetent staff and management

I stayed one night at the Ole Sereni at the recommendation of my travel agency, True Africa. I needed a place to stay while waiting for a flight to Addis the late the next day. True Africa arranged for all my transfers and lodging and everything went very smoothly. The hotel is very nice, modern and the public rooms are... More

We had stayed on 3 separate nights in Ole Sereni, at the end of September 2012. The hotel is great for an overnight or short stay, however as the rooms are small, it would not be ideal for a longer visit. The location of the hotel is ideal for onward travelling, it is about halfway between the International airport and... More

close to Nairobi international airport (20 minutes) as well as Wilson (25 minutes) airport. situated on the boundary of Nairobi National park, so you get to see animals if you are lucky. Rooms are clean and moderate size. Buffet breakfast good and even the dinner was good. Staff is friendly and service is prompt. Check out was quick. Quieter location... More

A very family friendly place where they even consider kid meals so that nothing goes to waste. Ambiance is superb and you are actually able to see antelopes at the national park if you are lucky. The food is fabulous since you even have a very wide variety and even snacks.

If you're just passing through Nairobi airport and don't want to deal with the traffic and go into the city then you'll probably consider this place. There isn't much choice in the way of airport hotels near Jomo Kenyatta and this is reckoned to be the best of the bunch. It's an expensive but safe option with big clean rooms.... More

When I say "close to the airport" it's bout five miles, but still probably the most convenient. I stayed for one night in transit from Uganda to Zambia and was really impressed. Its location is a little strange ... it looks as though it's been plonked in the middle of nowhere, just off he main Mombassa Road... but it does... More

This was a welcoming visit after 10 days of seat bouncing, dust, early rising and late evenings in the Kenyan countryside. The 2 day stay prior to our departure for Europe provided excellent views of the National Park, patio area to have beverages/snacks, buffet breakfast, dinner menu not extensive but well prepared and exceptional Kenya gifts in the Gift Shop....
