Serena Hotel is probably one of the more convenient hotels to stay while in Nairobi.
The hotel is conveniently located, if you just got off the plane in Kenyatta Airport (which is around 40 minutes away) unless you hit rush hour traffic.
The hotel is also suitable for business meetings, with nice lobby waiting area plus a very quiet business lounge area for a good private business meeting. The coffee house is located on the ground floor, and serves good breakfast buffet spread. There is also a nice outdoor area with view of the swimming pool, nice for cool mornings or late afternoons.
But this hotel with its overall wood finishing needs a bit of an upgrade. The rooms are rather cramp, with old airconditioning and very tight shower/tub.
