Good hotel worth $85 or less
Pros: clean, good gym, quiet, safe, friendly staff, good location, good WiFi. Cons: no room service, main restaurant was not that good. Breakfast was too expensive. Wood key cards often broke. Often changing WiFi password was annoying. Coffee was weak and insipid. Bottomline: It's a great place. I would not pay more than $85 to stay here for the basic room.

Highly recommend this hotel
I would definitely recommend this hotel. The traditional African decor are awesome, the food, room service, and hospitality are great. The only thing I would recommend is check the AC units in all rooms to make sure they are optimal and provide slippers for guests. We stayed on the older side but am told from others who stayed on the newer side that AC is strong, international electrical outlets are standard, as well as slippers.

8/10 Very good

Property is great. Our second time staying here in less than a week. First stay was excellent. Second time we decided to stay here from The Nairobi Serena as it was close to the airport & we were traveling that night. We ordered food (with two little kids) which took over an hour for just pizza & fries as it was late afternoon. Once the pizza was ready, it sat on the kitchen counter until I finally decided to go collect it myself as our server didn’t seem to care. To make matters worse, we got to the hotel at around 3pm and our room wasn’t ready, they finally put us in whatever was available (not the room we booked) and the room (club room number 329) smelled like cigarette smoke (previous guest). They finally changed us to a different room (350) but at this time our kids had missed their naps. Front desk was very helpful but I think the service was absolutely horrible. Maybe the newer side (Emara) has better service but the food isn’t great there either for what they charge. Mark you we stayed at Serena, Radisson Blu Arboretum, Sarova etc during our 3 week visit to Kenya & they all had amazing customer service so this is not coming from nowhere. I would love to stay at Olesereni again but I’m not too sure I would again.

I love the location and the staff are always kind. On this recent stay, however, after a 30 minute wait, our suitcases had not been delivered to our room. So I went and picked them myself. The air conditioner was not working, but the facilities crew got it up and running. The food is always good and the location can’t be outdone
