"Ole-Sereni review"

1 night Arrived 28 Sep 2014
"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"." See all these reviews: 18n in Tanzania; 1n in Kenya

"Best breakfast choice ever!"

1 night Arrived 23 Sep 2014
"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." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania; 3n in Zanzibar; 1n in Kenya

"Ole-Sereni - a great place to start the trip"

1 night Arrived 15 Sep 2014
"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." See all these reviews: 12n in Tanzania; 1n in Kenya

"A short night in Nairobi"

1 night Arrived 11 Sep 2014
"This was a very conveniently located hotel for a brief overnight stay between arriving late evening at Nairobi airport, and our departure early the following morning.

The staff were very obliging in arranging for the breakfast buffet to open at 05:30 for us, 30 minutes earlier than normal." See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania; 1n in Kenya

"Ole-Sereni review"

1 night Arrived 23 Aug 2014
"On both occasions reception staff were very rude and totally disinterested and seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves rather than to guests. On the second occasion they claimed not to have a booking for us. It took half an hour before they allowed us to stay. This was despite showing Expert Africa voucher. The company that met us in Nairobi said they had numerous problems with Ole Sereni." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia; 4n in Rwanda; 2n in Kenya
