We stayed at this hotel prior and after our safari trip. It's a nice, new hotel. Located right next to the park reserve, with great views and occasional animals. It's located near the airport, so no hassles with Nairobi traffic. Kid friendly with a pool. Service did vary some - mostly very good, but some slow meal service. But food... More

Have stayed at this hotel twice, each time the service was exceptional. The restaurant overlooking the park is wonderful. There is no guarantee you will see animals each and every time, but none the less the view is incredible. Hotel is situated in close proximity to the airport- which is a definite plus in Nairobi considering traffic if you are... More

I'm just about to wrap up a month long stay at the Ole Sereni. From the time you walk in the front entrance, you are welcomed with a warm personal greetings and smiles.

Great location for a hotel, right on the edge of Nairobi National Park. Although at this time of the year you will not see many animals roaming close by, the terrace outside is a great place to relax in the afternoons, having drinks or dinner or both. The staff is very friendly and make you fell right at home. Great... More

Great location, right between the two airports in Nairobi. Rooms are very clean and quiet. View towards the National Park is very nice, but those rooms are more expensive. The other rooms have a "city view" which is the pits. Food is average, service we received was good.
