I booked in after 3 nights at the Ole Sereni due to lack of availability at OS due to late change in plans. Immediately on arrival the difference is noticeable. The whole premise of the hotel is one where the hotel has several restaurants but only one which is affiliated to the hotel. The staff appear not to be trained to the same standard and are not attuned to the customer in the same way good hotels are. The decor is dated and the although the rooms are comfortable, they are getting tired.
Breakfast is fine but there was no fresh fruit juice on the day I ate there. The chef (kitchen hand) appeared with a pre-diluted plastic canister and filled the 'juice' container which put me right off. Fresh juice is in abundance in Kenya.
In all, a comfortable enough hotel for one night, in a good location but it doesn't live up to its self-proclaimed 4/5 star status, or anywhere near it.
