Do not expect personal service at the Ole Sereni. The hotel is situated along Mombasa Road a few kilometers from the JKIA airport.The hotel is very clean and offers a very sumptuous buffet. Guests can enjoy watching the wild animals across the national park as they enjoy their meals in the outside eating area or by the swimming pool.

We purchased the gourmet food and spa/gym package to enjoy during our two months in Nairobi. The staff are very kind and helpful. The amenities are a good size and very clean. A plus, for our son, was seeing the different animals every day.

Great hotel, lovely staff and excellent service. We arrived as a group and were really well looked after the whole time. Would definitely recommend to groups/couples/families. Pool area under refurbishment but still a relaxing place to site with a nice view across Nairobi National Park.
