I recently stayed at the Ole Sereni for four nights while in Nairobi on business. It’s fairly close to the airport and next to a game park, but entirely self-contained; there’s nothing else in the immediate vicinity. As others have noted, the rooms, while not spacious, are equipped with all the amenities. Those on the game park side have much the better view, although animals were not often in evidence during my stay. Breakfast buffet was better than average but some items on offer one day were not there the next. The verandah, accessible from both the restaurant and the bar, is a big plus in terms of leisurely dining or hanging out. On the minus side, the business center was way below par for a luxury hotel – often there was no one in charge, and even simple tasks like printing and copying were frustratingly difficult. The front desk staff generally seemed able to handle normal routine but was flummoxed by anything out of the ordinary, while the restaurant service ranged from adequate to slow. Given the prices it charges, the hotel could do a better job overall.
