The Ole Sereni hotel is decorated in a nice African style that goes with the surroundings of the savanna's right outside the frontterrace. From which I have spotted giraffes, ostriches, buffalos and gazelles, not to mention a crane or two, i.e. the bird.
The food in the restaurant and/or bar is very good, whether it be asian, indian or a simple hamburger, and what's more, pleasantly priced!
The rooms are nice, clean, with a good, hot shower, one drawback, the beds are quite hard, but to alleviate this they can put on a comforter kind of thin mattress, which works, but of course you need to request this from housekeeping.
The gym is nice and airy, well equipped. Pity they charge approx. 15 euro's for the sauna and steamroom. Everywhere else this is usually free.
All in all a nice, quiet place, away from the bustle of the city, right on the edge of the national park, with a great view of the plains to the west.
Last but not least, the hotel staff is very friendly and forthcoming.
