We stayed here for one night when we arrived in Nairobi before leaving for safari the next day. We also had dinner at the hotel before leaving for the airport on our return to the U.S. The room was very clean and quiet. The buffet breakfast was very good, and the dinner ala carte menu had a good variety of... More

I stayed here for a few hours prior to my return flight back home to the US. For a day room it was very comfortable and had everything you needed to rest and freshen up before your onward journey. The hotel also has a good restaurant and gift shop for any last minute gifts, 15 minutes to the airport, and... More

This is a decent place in Nairobi to transition to/from safari. The rooms are old and overall the place is showing wear but it's generally clean and safe. The service was good and we had a nice meal in the Eagles View restaurant (the buffet in the main restaurant was mediocre).

Spotting Antilopes, Buffalos, Giraffes and Zebras (sometimes even lions) when having a break after hard Business discussions in town is really extraordinary not being specifically on leisure but on a Business trip.

Lovely, enjoyed the bitings and the ambience. Service is so on point and the waiters are friendly with a smile as they served us. Security is so high so you don't need to worry about where the car is or if you are safe while eating or having your drinks.

We stayed at Ole Sereni at the suggestion of our travel agency when we had a long day in Nairobi ahead of a late night flight. It is an upscale hotel for the area and is popular among business travelers [as there were many milling about the lobby when we were checking in]. Our room was relatively basic, but was... More

Great hotel. Great and friendly staff. Food was nice. Stayed in hotel after 6 days of Safari in the Masai Mara and next day we had a flight to the Seychelles. Its not in the center of Nairobi but ideal in between 2 airports
