“Convenient located near the international airport serving a relaxed atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

This hotel is located 20 driving minutes from the airport. It's also close to a national wildlife park, where you can have a game drive. Most rooms offer a great view at this park. The gym offers some state of the art equipment. Free wifi is available around the hotel premises and rooms. Several restaurants offer local and international cuisine. Staff is always around and happy to serve you the "African Way"! Recommended for a short (business)stay.

This was a great location for a business trip. It is located near the airport and you don't have to suffer the Nairobi traffic to get in and out of the property. Unfortunately, there is a large cloverleaf intersection being built right outside the property and traffic in and out is sure to be impeded. Once construction is done, I'm sure they have made provisions for entry and exit.

Room Tip: Away from the construction and facing the game reserve.

We needed to stay one night in Nairobi close to the airport. We chose the Ole Sereni because of its proximity, security, and luxury. We were not disappointed. Although we didn't eat at the hotel it was very busy and everyone was very friendly. Although a little pricy I would recommend this hotel to anyone who's concerned about safety and wants a good nights rest a short distance from the airport.

Room Tip: They have a park side and a city side. We stayed in the city side because we knew it would be too la...

Business trip, great staff very friendly. Solomon the porter was great and so was Eric the receptionist. The menu was limited, we dined upstairs and down stairs. Would stay again, had great room over the national park, saw giraffe so early one morning.

The hotel was fair, but their Eagles Restaurant was exceptional. Every meal was delicious, and as a coeliac, it's often difficult to get good meals when traveling. The view from all the dining rooms (I always chose to eat on the balconies/terraces) was also wonderful, looking out over the reserve. Excellent 4-day weekend getaway!

A reduced rate of $300 got me a tiny boxy room that looked more like a motel than anything else. Room service took so long to arrive that I had fallen asleep by the time it actually came. Noisy cleaners all night and very little soundproofing didn't make for a charming stay. Not sure why this place charges the rates it does-- will avoid in future.
