I am usually a positive reviewer, and have consistent expectations, but my stay at Ole Sereni left me a bit confused. For the positive: The location was great. This was a stop over hotel after the safari part of a holiday, and was our accommodations prior to flying to Diani

Waking up to watch the sunrise over the nationalpark was breathetaking. Great welcome, wonderful rooms and very good food at all restaurants. The staff were attentive, can highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent location within 5 km of airport and close to the Logistics Park if you work in supply chain. Very comfortable and lovely restaurants, reasonably priced, with great food and service. The reason for a three rating is you will hear the constant banging of doors in the

The quality of the hotel was very good and I had an excellent stay. The hotel staff was welcoming and the restuarant staff had time to explain different dishes and everything was well. In general could come back to Ole Sereni.

Hi Nate, no on both counts. Given the traffic congestion in Nairobi, like a lot of cities, I would suggest you use one of the hotel such engines to find a hotel near to the convention centre, located towards the centre of Nairobi. Check the reviews for general security in the area of the hotel. I've never ventured out at night in the centre of the city, so caution is advised. If you want a hotel close to the airport with a sight over the Nairobi National Park the Ole Sereni is unique. Enjoy your stay.

The hotel will guide on car rental and get you one. Since the hotel is next to main southern bypass highway getting to the animal orphanage is 5 to 10 minutes drive. The elephant orphanage is slightly ahead of main orphanage and plan for 25 minutes if you need to see the elephants too.

"Chose room with park view as the road view is noisy. Make sure a/c is working."
"Ask for the rooms on the side bordering the park. you can watch the animals from your room."
"NOT overlooking the road side"
"Room overlooking the National Park is very nice."
"The rooms looking towards the national park have better views and less noise from the highway"
