Nice hotel. Everyone was friendly and the food was

Posted 08-Sep-2014
Pros: Location to the airport and the security measures in place.
Location: Loved the elephant orphanage although $80 USD for a 20 minute ride each way seemed excessive.
Two major complaints - I did not have a comfortable chair to sit in and read or watch tv. I mostly laid across the bed. Second I always use hotel transportation while staying but I thought you were over priced and would rethink that one feature if coming again. $175 to go to the US Embassy and back was out of line.

Nice hotel- safe!

Posted 31-Jul-2014
Just stayed a night! The room was clean just small. It took forever for the rollaway bed yo get up tongue room even after several calls downstairs. Once it came it was comfy and we all had a good nights sleep. It is a VERY safe hotel!!

Great stay next to the park

Cons: The gourment club that we joined as part of the hotel was fairly unorganized. However we bought the membership and it seems to be good value.
We had a great stay at the hotel - it was our first anniversary and they made it quite special. Though one is unlikely to see any of the big animals, we did see buffalo, gazelles and many birds. The view of the plains is great and for anyone coming in from an international flight, the location is great. The Big Five restaurant apparently is not affiliated with the one in Nairobi but is still good.

Delightful hotel nearer airport

Posted 01-Jun-2014
Hotel is peaceful with pleasing local decor. If no need to be in downtown Nairobi, then I would definitely stay here again.

Could do better

Posted 25-May-2014 on Hotels.com
The staff were friendly and welcoming though dinner service at the restaurant was rather slow and unprofessional. The room was clean and comfortable, The main problem was that the service staircase and entrance to the corridor was right next to my room. Having chosen to stay at Ole Sereni because I need to get to the airport for an early flight, it was extremely frustrating to be kept awake for several hours due to the noise made by staff opening and shutting the service door, clanking trolleys, talking etc. Given that the roadworks outside my window only finished at 6pm, my stay overall was very disrupted. Thus the additional expense of staying at the Ole Sereni, compared to similar level hotels further away, was not really justified.

More than expected!

We stayed one night before heading into the Masai mara and it was perfect. Great location to the airports, restaurants and friendly staff.

Close airport

Although it was brief we enjoyed the facility and your staff were most helpful!

Nice location and view, but not worth the money

Posted 06-Feb-2014
it's close to the airport which is great, and has a fab view over Nairobi national park. However, for the price there is a lot lacking, including why do you have to pay separate for the use of the sauna after a nice workout in the gym, a balcony door which could not be opened, a tube light buzzing and going on and off (and after a gentle nudge stayed off the rest of the night), no airport shuttle despite many people going up and down to the airport all the time, and a room which was far from soundproof which isn't great if you arrive during the day after a long flight and just want to relax. Reservation preferences are not taking into account and so you end up with two single beds rather than a double as asked for. It's going to be time soon as well for a refurbishment of the hotel, as the paint doesn't look so fresh anymore as a few years back.

Don't stay here if you ever leave something behind

Posted 23-Jan-2014
Cons: Customer care doesn't exist.
I arrived late on the 10th January 2014 on route from uk or Tanzania. Everything was ok but I left some possessions behind in the scramble in the early morning. Despite repeated telephone calls and emails I received not one reply and no explanation of where the goods had gone. Customer care by reception, housekeeping and the manager were non existent.
