We stayed here for several hours for our long flight home after the safari. It is close to the airport. It is very clean with good food. I would recommend it as transit hotel, but not for leisure. The hotel is next to the game park with construction surrounding the hotel.

OLE-SERENI has become my safe haven between my long flight journeys between Mogadishu, Somalia, and Canada via London, UK. I feel at home and I thank OLE-SERENI friendly staff for everything.

The hotel is in a good location if you are transiting and if you need a place for the night, but I wouldn't come here if I have to spend more than one night. The rooms a small and, if they face the street, very noisy! But they are clean. The hotel is also used by airline crews, which if... More

This hotel is situated about 20min drive from Nairobi airport which, if you know Nairobi traffic, is perfect as it saves a 2hr traffic crawl to the city or airport. Saying that it is out of the main city area so you would need to drive in to do anything. The hotel is clean and tidy, rooms are averaged sized... More

I find Nairobi a good "hub" for organizing business meetings for multinational companies with staff/attendees spread across Africa, primarily due to accessibility from most African and European cities with a single direct flight. Ole Sereni is in a convenient location with minimal traffic to get through from the airport, which as well as good conference facilities, offers a peaceful atmosphere... More
