Reviews of Ole-Sereni
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
We were given a road view room when we think we were due a deluxe park view room. However, it was too late at night when we arrived to bother to complain - especially as check in had taken so long anyway.
The new road being built right outside will make the hotel pretty noisy.
We did go back to the hotel for a meal before our flight home and that was very good - in the 4th floor restaurant.
We had to stop over in Nairobi for a night to get an early flight the next morning and this is the closest hotel to the airport.
Though the decor isn't to European tastes, it served its purpose just fine .
Ole-Sereni location is great
Ole-Sereni is very well positioned for accessing the airport as you can take a back road to avoid the terrible Nairobi traffic. It was lovely to have a great buffet breakfast overlooking Nairobi National Park.
The two downsides for us were the hard beds (a travel agent we met says she asks for her guests to be given extra padding!) and the fact that we were given a room directly above the entrance and there was considerable noise from vehicles/people arriving and departing throughout the night.
Convenient and comfortable overnight-er
Flying into to Nairobi late-ish evening, we needed an overnight stay before travelling on. Ole-Sereni was perfect: well located relative to the international airport (and Wilson - although we were not going on there on this occasion) and with a breakfast terrace overlooking the national park (so plenty of early morning bird life to enjoy).Read more about the whole trip
we were only here for one night but found the food and service excellent , our only comment was that the beds were rather uncomfortable !Read more about the whole trip
Convenient location in Nairobi
Conveniently located for an overnight stay and has a good view over Nairobi National Park, however the current construction work to build a major road junction on the front doorstep of the hotel risks spoiling future hotel stays for guests.Read more about the whole trip
friendly efficient and very comfortable.Read more about the whole trip
Conveniently located near both airports, the international and the local one. Nice room, modern, tastefully decorated, a bit on the small size yet very comfortable.
Very good service, dining across the park and able to have a quick breakfast before 6 am. Certainly an ideal place for a night's stay upon arrival for a safari.
