We are a global blue-chip company holding internal conference for 100 top senior executives once a year. This year we have decided to take the conference from Europe to Nairobi - the Ole Sereni hotel to be precise - which was the biggest mistake! These conferences take months of preparations and this one was no exception. We have signed a... More

During the recently held Airtel Africa partners' meet, had the pleasure of being in this hotel. The hotel is located bang on the boundaries of the Nairobi wildlife national park...in fact many rooms have the view of the park. The first floor resturant is a very good place to sit watch the wild animals like Giraffe and others roaming in... More

I live in Nairobi and visited the hotel for their Sunday brunch and i must admit for a price of $30 per person I wasn't to happy. Generally it is hard to get good value for money for a good meal and I expected more from this hotel, and as per most of the restaurants in Nairobi, we ate at... More

The Ole Sereni is a wonderful hotel. The property has a wonderful location between the airport and the city center (which is very important when one considers Nairobi's legendary traffic), right on the edge of Nairobi National Park. The rooms are well appointed, there is an excellent terrace bar and restaurant that overlooks the game park and the business facilities... More

The rooms are big, clean, new and comfortable; you could not ask for better. The staff were helpful and sorted our issues some of the group had with the configuration of the rooms booked. The breakfast was one of the best on our month long tour; big buffet with great choice and quality. There was a party the night of... More

Located 10 minutes up the main Mombasa Road from JKIA int'l airport, this is a transit hotel or base for those active in the industrial areas southeast of the city, and also hosts local (small scale) meetings downstairs. Location is the draw for those who need to be in this area, and it is definitely NOT for those who want... More

We had a dayroom booked in Karen but the traffic in Mumbai (oops I meant Nairobi which resembles the worst of Mumbai more and more each time we go) was so bad we could not make it back & forth to the hotel in time. I noticed the relatively new Ole Sereni the day before on the way past, and... More

It is new, close to the airport and has a nice view of the empty bush. Reception area is cold, idle and tasteless, almost feels like it's not finished/furnished. There is a bar with the view of the empty bush, the rooms are clean and standard, food is average, breakfast is more on the sweet side (a big buffet). I... More
