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

Check in much better this time though it took a long time for our cases to be brought to our room.

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.

Just fine

We were here for 18 hours. They were very sweet—even giving us a cake to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The food was fine and the rooms quiet, and the location is quite convenient to both airports.

Ole-Sereni review

The hotel was fine and the staff helpful; breakfast was excellent. The only drawback was the time taken to get there from the airport, about 30 minutes even at 1100pm!

This journey was enlightened by, of all things, a group of zebra crossing the main road leaving the airport; it will always bring a new meaning to "zebra crossing".

Best breakfast choice ever!

This hotel was exactly what was needed for one night stopover - the staff were helpful, the room was perfectly adequate, the views from one side were a foretaste of what was to come and the choice at breakfast was probably better than five star hotels.

Overall, most satisfactory.

Ole-Sereni - a great place to start the trip

We only stayed at Ole-Sereni for one night - just to break the journey, we didn't have time to sample any food, it was literally a place to sleep.

It was a very comfortable hotel and we'd certainly use it again.
