This Hotel provides a no-charge view of the Nairobi National Park / Game Area. I saw giraffes and zebras, along with golden antelopes. No early check-in. This premise was earlier the US Embassy, temporarily. Security features continue from then.

Nice views. Very very bad service. Can not make drinks from their own menu. For ok but to an hour. After food was served they still did not give us silverware and napkins! Very disappointing. Also other people said the same next to us, they are waiting for over 30 minutes to be

The service is superb and the staff so welcoming all the way from the entrance security check to the restaurant. Very cool environment for bussiness meeting at the waterhole, view of the park is even more amazing.

Is this hotel close too or within walking distance of international convention centre?
Hi Nate, no on both counts. Given the traffic congestion in Nairobi, like a lot of cities, I would suggest you use one of the hotel such engines to find a hotel near to the convention centre, located towards the centre of Nairobi. Check the reviews for general security in the area of the hotel. I've never ventured out at night in the centre of the city, so caution is advised. If you want a hotel close to the airport with a sight over the Nairobi National Park the Ole Sereni is unique. Enjoy your stay.

The hotel will guide on car rental and get you one. Since the hotel is next to main southern bypass highway getting to the animal orphanage is 5 to 10 minutes drive. The elephant orphanage is slightly ahead of main orphanage and plan for 25 minutes if you need to see the elephants too.

"Even numbered rooms overlook the wildlife park."
"Chose room with park view as the road view is noisy. Make sure a/c is working."
"Ask for the rooms on the side bordering the park. you can watch the animals from your room."
"NOT overlooking the road side"
"Room overlooking the National Park is very nice."
