Traveling to Nairobi is one of the joys of my current post, the Serena is one of my favourite hotels. Situated on the road to the Presidential Palace it boasts a wonderful garden setting within the heart of Nairobi. The hotel is built to human scale with two floors. At the centre of the hotel is a wonderful pool alongside a bar and a restaurant.
The rooms are clean and well kept up. TV and internet services are well provided for. I particularly enjoyed sleeping with the window open – just finding a hotel that has a window that opens is a rare treat these days. The food is good – but can be priced high. Wine selection is unimaginative and needs a rethink. I do recommend the local beer.
I used the car service from the hotel on short notice to get around – they are excellent, safe and waited for me during the day. All charges were added to my hotel account which was helpful.
It is the best place to stay, excellent place to convene meetings and host people. I would highly recommend the hotel, a step up from the Standly where I used to stay.
