While it's a convenient and pretty place to be Ole Sereni is more of a hassle than it's worth. Try other places around the area before you come here. The service is lousy, even rude. The food could do better as well.

A modern Hotel that has excellent service, well prepared food and is extremely handy to the Airport. It is not in the downtown Nairobi area which, depending on your travel plans, can be a good thing. (Traffic in Nairobi is brutal). The rooms are very clean, modern and equipped with AirCon. The business centre, including use of a computer and... More

A hotel to recommend. Hotel was most comfortable and accommodating. The service was generally very good - apart from the prolonged check-in and check-out procedure which was extended and tediously slow. Rooms very comfortable and the location was very convenient for business and airport access. Perhaps a little overpriced.

I stayed here transiting Nairobi from South Sudan. The location of the hotel means that you can make an early morning flight out of Nairobi, whereas some of the more established hotels are located on the other side of Nairobi's now infamous rush hour traffic. The Sereni was just that - serene. Looking out onto the wildlife park, from the... More

Just stayed at the Ole Sereni, very impressed. Close to the airport, location wise. View of the game park from the restaurants is spectacular, however the city view is not so great. The rooms are clean, modern with LCD tv, wireless internet including in the room, wet room, safe, fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, hairdryer, UK plug sockets, small... More

I booked Ole Sereni online for an overnight stay as it is close to the airport in Nairobi. When I arrived there was no record of my booking though I had confirmation. It took almost ONE hour to resolve the problem and only after I insisted and became quite agitated! That the person "responsible for internet banking" was not in... More

Stayed at this hotel over-night while travelling on my way back home from South Sudan. Conveniently located on the Mombassa Road close to JKIA between the airport and downtown Nairobi which means you avoid most of the traffic hassle of getting into Nairobi. Efficient and friendly check-in staff greet you on arrival, the rooms are clean and very comfortable, with... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Ole Sereni Hotel, in Nairobi, Kenya, from 10/29/11 until 11/01/11 as part of the last few days of our vacation. The interior decor of the hotel is absolutely beautiful and exotic. Quite pleasing to the eye. However, our accommodations left something to be desired. Our room was rather small, especially the bathroom. The... More

Great view over the park. Sunken jacuzzi bath. 2 toilets. Flat screen. Super king size bed! Our room was gorgeous too. A king size. Clean... More
