I've stayed at this property a few times (my last stay was Dec 12, 2012) and I must say every stay has been nothing short of excellent. The location is great; it's close to the airport which means you avoid the nightmarish Nairobi traffic; it is also a gated property and does not sit on the main road which made me feel safe. The staff is super friendly; everyone from the driver who met me at the airport, the receptionists at check-in, the gentlemen who assisted me with my baggage after a long flight. The food in the restaurant is delicious (I've only tried vegetarian options and have never been disappointed), and the portions are generous. The internet signal is really strong in the main areas of the hotel, and pretty good in the rooms. The rooms are nicely appointed and modern, although I have to admit the beds are very firm. I would like to say thank you to 2 exceptional managers (both named Shadrack), who ensured that I was comfortable and that all of my needs were met during my visit. Lastly, the gift shop is really nice, I bought a pair of a high quality leather sandals with intricate Masai beadwork. I hope in the future the gift shop will accept American Express (at present they do not). I will continue to stay at this property when traveling to Nairobi; I love the modern vibe and feel of the Ole Sereni and look forward to seeing everyone again on my next visit (Jan 2013!).
