Due to renovation works the restaurant is placed in a huge tent behind the hotel. However, the noise of the construction is very present all the time. Service is incredibly slow and clumsy (dropped a bottle of Coke next to me without any excuse). WiFi is available on surcharge, which is hard to understand at this price level. Food is... More

Waited an hour for two club sandwiches, it's the second time we came here in two months and they made mistakes in the order both times. Disappointed as it's a nice setting.

I am staying at the Serena and was too tired to go out so thought i would try the Kibo bar for food. Pretty much the same menu as room service. I ordered their 'pure' beef burger. Firstly I was not asked how i wanted it cooked. Then after 40 minutes of waiting I asked where it was and miraculously... More

Their sandwiches are very delicious. You can select bread, fresh salad, meat and dressings to put in. Also drinks are nice. I really like the glass of cold milk coffee which is so unique.

They had a very good selection of all kinds of drinks. Service was not very attentive, and prices are a bit higher than they probably need to be, but good overall.

I have tried it many times, but the dining is mostly disappointing here. Its your easy option if you are staying in the Serena, which is a good hotel. Do not try the beef, the fillet steak is often sold out, as is the rib eye. I settled for a T-bone, that arrived after about 1 hour (not busy at... More

Kibo bar is a great place to get your own custom sandwich at lunch time. For 10 usd you can choose between a good variety of choice. This is multiplying the diversity of your sandwiches at each visit. However, the a la carte food in the menu sounds interesting but what comes in your plate in very different, so different... More
