We recently stayed this hotel for a couple of nights and enjoyed the experience overall but with reservations! The hotel is only a short, 10 minutes, drive from the airport but situated in an unattractive, sprawling business area. However, the hotel also backs on to a game park and from the rear rooms (at a premium) and the restaurants and... More

I stayed here for one night only as i was awaiting a transfer flight. Got a room with a park view. it was nice, but not sure it was worth the extra money. The restaurant also has park views so long as you get the right table. It is close to the national park and we has a great safari... More

Really nice the gym of the hotel (sometime could be crowded) and the outside pool. Restaurant is fine: many different choices but i think they... More

I regularly travel to 12 African cities - For a city/aiprort hotel the view across Nairobi Safari Park is one of the most tranquil of the 12 cities I travel to - However having arrived and been pleasantly surprised by the view - from then on things were downhill. Reception Service - 20 mins to check in (only 1 staff... More

We were really excited when we arrived after the Safari! The Lobby was so nice, we were looking forward to checking our email and have a few drinks! So we checked into our room, it was alright...tried to connect to the Internet, did not work, called the reception they said it was down but they were working on it, well... More

Very nice hotel for a small conference. Excellent restaurant, well trained and attentive staff, sleeping rooms comfortable. And clean. Bad internet everywhere so if you have heave duty use think twice. Otherwise a very nice experience. Would stay there again.

Had a quick lunch after a business meeting here. Terrible service... they just can't get their act together! The view overlooking the Nairobi National Park was good though.

For context, I am a frequent international traveller, and generally stay at upscale hotels. This was my first trip to Nairobi. I stayed at the hotel Ole Sereni for 1 night on February 29, 2012. Pros: staff was very friendly and helpful. Service was generally slow, but more than competent. Check-in took some time, I served my own coffee at... More

I stayed here during Christmas period where they had a "Christmas Special Offer". I guess it was because of the low numbers expected. I think it is a good hotel, save for the price which I think is overpriced. One thing I noticed is that the price for wine on the menu was different from the one at the bar!... More
