Ole Sereni, Nairobi
A Gem in Nairobi
From check-in through check-out, our three was an exceptional experience. All staff we encountered were professional, friendly, attentive without being intrusive, helpful, courteous and executed great hospitality. We used the laundry service. It was excellent, reasonably price and timely. Food service was great from the Sunday brunch through our other meals on -site. Our room had an excellent view of the Nairobi National Park. Overall, an outstanding lodging experience.

Ole Sereni Review
Room was great. Front desk service was fantastic. Concierge was very helpful. Only negative on service would be the customer service in the restaurant. Waited long periods of time for food and drink. At one point in my trip I decided to go later (after 9 PM) to the restaurant assuming it wouldn't take as long. I waited 1 hr and 15 minutes for my food.

Isolated issue by hotel left me room-less.
I stay at this hotel during each of my visits to Nairobi. It's comfortable, and I'll continue to book here when the price allows. However, on this reservation, I arrived to the hotel at 24 hours of travel - only to be asked to wait for almost an hour due to a obvious "issue" with my check in. By the time I was told what was really going on it was Midnight - and the staff confirmed that they had made a mistake and overbooked the hotel. I didn't have a room. The manager was apologetic and I do believe this was a mistake. They booked me at another hotel to accommodate - but I was lost hours of rest and had to re-arrange my schedule based on this. Additionally, the hotel they put me in was not entirely comparable in cost or amenities to the Ole Sereni. As mentioned, I'll stay here again - but am waiting for a refund from since I did not get the hotel, service, etc that I paid for.

The air conditioner was off when I got into the room at midnight and it never cooled off! Hot night it was!
