Having read the review of the business traveller from Virginia, concerning the Serene Valley Apartments & Spa, I felt compelled to recount my experiences, so different were they! My husband and I (both in our 60s) visited this apartment complex while we were in Nairobi for a few days. Although we did not stay in the apartments, we spent a day there and had treatments in the newly opened Spa centre - I had a body scrub, while my husband had a pedicure. The staff were most friendly and engaging, as were other staff we encountered i.e. receptionists, apartment manager, pool attendant etc. We were shown around both furnished and unfurnished apartments, which are finished to a very high standard indeed! We also had lunch in the cafe at the entrance (where again the staff were charming) and were invited to use the delightful pool, which was most welcome in the heat of the afternoon! The building is very well laid out and spotless, and the setting is excellent, given the proximity to Upper Hills, where most large businesses are located. Since traffic in Nairobi is a huge issue, this must be a bonus for the business traveller! As we were there for only a day, I cannot comment on value, sleep quality or room service, but based on what we saw, I would have no hesitation in recommending these apartments.
