A modern city hotel in an excellent location overlooking Kenya’s Nairobi National Park, Ole Sereni is a convenient and comfortable choice for a stopover or pre-safari stay, as it is an easy distance from both the international airport and Wilson airport, where most internal safari flights depart. The world’s only game park adjoining a capital city, the Nairobi National Park’s 117 square kilometres include several different eco-systems and even support a spectacular wildebeest and zebra migration. Many of the hotel’s rooms overlook the park, as do the restaurants and terraces, so your game viewing can start even before you leave the city.
The 134 rooms are modern and well-equipped. Choose the Deluxe or Club rooms for the views over the park, which are a big part of the attraction of Ole-Sereni. Looking out at wide open vistas of savannah dotted with zebra in the distance, it’s hard to believe you’re still in a bustling metropolis.
All the rooms are comfortably furnished with a simple contemporary feel and have complimentary wi-fi, tea and coffee-making facilities, a flat-screen TV and air-conditioning. The Club rooms are more spacious with the addition of a sitting area and a small balcony to take advantage of the view.
All three restaurants have fine views over the park and waterhole and offer a range of meals to suit most occasions. The Big Five is the main restaurant with a varied menu that includes grills, Italian, Indian and Asian cuisines and also offers buffet lunches, Sunday brunches and buffet breakfasts with a wide array of choice and cook to order omelette and egg station. For light meals and snacks the Waterhole bar offers a good selection, or you could splurge on fine-dining at the Eagle Lounge.
Relaxing beside the pool, or working out at the gym before a session in the steam room or sauna are great ways of passing the afternoon before a late flight, or sit on the verandah with a drink just soaking up the peace and serenity of Africa’s open spaces.
Ole-Sereni is ideally located for a Nairobi stopover with international levels of service and facilities.
