Stop over in Nairobi

You cannot expect too much from a stop over hotel but the Ole-Serini is tired and did not provide a pleasant stay. Our room faced a busy road, the air condition unit was ineffective and noisy and there was a constant sound of a generator or plant equipment throughout the night. Food was average.

The location is not too far from the International and wilson airports. In this respect it is convenient but the proximity to a national park - it is immediately adjacent - is not a major advantage and you are unlikely to see anything other than bush.

Our ground transport to Wilson went via another hotel called Boma. It did not look anything special but was mentioned as a possible overnight base by other travellers.

Very convenient for international and domestic airports.
Good food and service.
Rooms adequate for a one night stay.
We would definitely use this hotel again as an airport hotel

A fine transit hotel

The great thing about Ole Sereni is its location near the airport - a key factor given the awful Nairobi traffic. The bar terrace is a great place to grab a drink and relax after your flight - it makes a lovely start to a holiday. The downside is that the rooms are not particularly well soundproofed so there were doors slamming and noise well past midnight, which meant that we didn't get much sleep given we had to be up at 5 for our onward flight.

Ole-Sereni review

Was fine as a basic overnight stop off. The staff were very nice and helpful. The actual hotel wasn't that nice though nor was the room. The location is just on Kenya's equivalent of a motorway too. I'm not sure if there are any hotel airports in Nairobi but if there are that would have been an easier stopover.
