Opened in 2009, the Ole-Sereni is the closest Nairobi has to an airport hotel, although its newer neighbour, the Eka Hotel, is a worthy challenger. 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.
