The Nairobi Serena hotel was a very good choice for a hotel in Nairobi. It is very safe, with security check points at every entrance. The decor is lovely, with authentic, museum quality african art on display in all hotel public areas. The rooms are large and well appointed, although the bathrooms could use an update. The food is good, and service is very attentive. The hotel has a beautiful garden and a large inviting pool. It is in the middle of Nairobi so depending on the time of day, getting to and from the airport can take over an hour.
