I deliberated on the title of this posting / review. I did not want to come across to harshly as this is the first time I have stayed at the Ole Sereni in Nairobi, Kenya. It is a nice hotel with an awesome view over the game park when one sits in the restaurant and from some of the rooms. While one overlooks the game park the chance of seeing something closeby is probably slim. We did see some buck clsoe to the watering hole and some birds of prey passing by. In general I cannot rate this as an excellent hotel...it is a good hotel but could be so much better. The finishes inside are looking tired. I found this hotel pricey compared to others I have stayed in in East Africa for the quality of the facilities on offer. The food was good but as in many places service is slow. Having said all this I would gladly stay here next time compared to where i have stayed before...which itself was not too bad. It is close to the airport and also the site I needed to visit for business which is an important consideration in Nairobi since traffic in the capital can be unbelievable if travelling through or close to the peak times and when there has been a rain storm.
