With its relaxed atmosphere and tranquil gardens, the Nairobi Serena is one of Nairobi’s most popular hotels, and justly so. It has a convenient location overlooking Central Park and its various facilities mean that you don’t even have to leave the hotel during your stay.
The Moroccan-style Café Maghreb is the international buffet-style restaurant. Choose a table outside by the large swimming pool, and on Fridays be sure to opt for the seafood buffet. For à la carte dining, the stylish Mandhari restaurant offers light lunches and Mediterranean-style dinners. Even if you’re not heading in for drinks, take a peek inside the Aksum Bar, where the ceiling is adorned with hundreds of gold-edged umbrellas.
The comfortable rooms are traditional in style, with air-conditioning and city or garden views. A range of spacious suites are also available. After stepping off a flight or days spent on safari, the option of ordering room service 24 hours is a welcome luxury.
