"Ole Sereni Hotel, Nairobi"
"Ole-Sereni - great start to a safari"
We stayed here for two nights before our safari and a single night on our return. We found the rooms, service and food to be excellent and on our return stay we were upgraded to a suite. Without doubt would stay here again.
We arranged a morning game drive in the park through the hotel desk. This was a very rewarding trip as we had better views of rhino's here than in our main safari camps. Would definitely recommend a game drive in the park." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania; 3n in Kenya
"Good choice near airports"
We also visited Ole Sereni at the end of our journey before departing for home. We were welcomed to the dining room by a waiter who recognized us from our dining room breakfast visit over two weeks earlier -- a nice touch! We dined on the deck, choosing from the a la carte menu rather than the large buffet and found the portions very generous. We relaxed in their comfortable lobby chairs before leaving for JKIA."

Only down side was the room we were given on the last night, on the side of the hotel facing the main road very noisy, but otherwise comfortable.
The staff at knowing it was our honeymoon decorated our room on both occasions with rose petals, wine and chocolates. Lovely touch and helped make the holiday special." See all these reviews: 5n in Tanzania; 5n in Rwanda; 3n in Kenya
"convenient for the Airport"
"overnight stay between flights"
Our main comment is that Nairobi Airport at present is best avoided as the temporary immigration and customs hall (after a fire in the original terminal) is overcrowded, inefficient, not air-conditioned (so uncomfortably sweaty) and it takes ages to get through it. But if you have to pass through Nairobi and need somewhere nearby to stay the Ole-Sereni is a pleasant "oasis" ten minutes drive from there airport.!"
