"day room at Ole Sereni"
Otherwise the room was nice enough (when I got it) but I think I would probably have been better off at the Crowne Plaza." See all these reviews: 11n in Kenya
"An expanded return"
As it happens breakfast (which we have missed more often than we have partaken thereof) the following morning was also in the Eagle thanks to renovation work in the normal restaurant; again, excellent especially coupled with daylight views across the Nairobi NP.
Other than this, suffice it to say that we specifically asked to be put in the Ole-Sereni for our stay in Nairobi based on past experience and would have no hesitation doing so again especially once the wholesale rebuilding currently in the pipeline is concluded" See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya

"Perfect for one night"
It's a short distance from the airport, the rooms are comfortable and they serve a decent Tusker on the outside terrace and breakfast is fine." See all these reviews: 17n in Kenya
"Short but sweet"
As we arrived there just before 2300 and left again for Wilson Airport at 0600 the following morning there is little one can say other than (a) it is very convenient for both airports, (b) our room was comfortable, and (c) our packed breakfast (included in the room charge as we were B&B rate) was perfectly adequate.
Sadly, we were not there long enough to enjoy the excellent views across the underrated Nairobi NP from the hotel's breakfast terrace." See all these reviews: 7n in Kenya
Rooms are comfortable, although tiled floors (rooms and hallways) means there's not much to absorb noise.
There was an excellent spread at breakfast, although it was a little too early for me to admire the adjacent reserve.
Service was friendly and helpful." See all these reviews: 7n in Kenya
"Good hotel for short stay"
Good location for easy road access to the International and Wilson airports. Comfortable room, wide choice of food in the restaurant or served on the terraced area which overlooks the Nairobi National Park. Helpful staff. Breakfast officially starts at 6am but we found they were ready by 05.45 which helps those with an early start.
Only downside compared with our previous visit some years ago is the construction of a new major road which runs close to the hotel so rooms at the front are subject to traffic some noise." See all these reviews: 7n in Kenya; 5n in Zambia; 5n in Malawi
