Opened in 2009, the Ole-Sereni is the closest Nairobi has to an airport hotel, though its brand-new neighbour, the Eka Hotel, seems likely to challenge it. The building, which formerly housed the US Embassy, borders the fence that runs along the north side of Nairobi National Park, and has a first-floor terrace giving direct (albeit rather uninspiring) views across the savannah.

Our view of Ole-Sereni

Glitzy and flamboyant as it is, we wouldn’t normally gravitate to this kind of hotel. But the Ole-Sereni holds two strong cards. Firstly, it really is quite close to the international airport, making transfers relatively painless; and secondly, its food is excellent and deserves its good reputation. Small rooms with thin walls are perhaps to be expected in a city hotel, but a frequent lack of attention to detail is also something to be prepared for.
