The Boulevard was the very first hotel I stayed in Africa. I was impressed by everyone's friendliness. There are no elevators but the bell boys are very willing to carry up your luggage. The breakfast buffet is excellent, a great variety of dishes to please most appetites. There is a swimming pool and an attractive outside bar. Compared to local... More

Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip. The hotel dates back to the 70s I think, but the rooms have recently been renovated. It is part of a hotel chain and has some characteristics of both a hotel chain (functional) and a charming old hotel. The rooms are new with TV, stand-fan and safe but no air-con. Ours had... More

Spent 2 nights with wife and son. First night we spent, we slept on single beds. Seemed like school bunkers. The hotel requires a facelift and renovations. The garden was waoh! Great flowers and superb greenery. Looks like it was borrowed to compliment the hotel. Our last night upon returning from Masai Mara was better. More modern room and better... More

The hotel is located in a quite location, within 10 minutes walk to the CBD. Nice and clean rooms. Good garden, swimming pool and bar. Staff is friendly and helpful. The only problem is that it doesnt have aircon, so i can imagine staying here in summer will be terrible. Also the breakfast is of poor quality.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning, and once in the middle of a G Adventures trip in February. We had asked for a room with 2 beds for the first stay and ended up getting one, but we were so tired after flying that we just left it. Wasn't really a major issue. They did accommodate my request... More

Hotel used by G Adventures to launch trips out of Nairobi. Hotel staff were helpful, rooms clean and adequate. Hotel itself was a little dated but OK. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices. Hotel is located next to national Museum if you are looking for something to do nearby.

We had to stay here for one night as we were joining a G Adventures tour from the Hotel the next morning. We didn't expect it to be the Hilton and it wasn't. However it was as good as we expected it to be. The pool was great which we made use of. The rooms were clean and tidy so... More

We had to stay at the Boulevard because we were joining a tour that started from there. The place and the location was good. Clean and good facilities. Definitely overpriced if you pay the 210$ per night that would be the official cost, just ok if you pay the 110$ that we paid on Expedia.
