1. It's all integrated ! I mean you drop a mail or say something to the someone ( say the reception) and the message is passed to all concerned and followed up to its completion religiously. The Hotel Boma Inn ( earlier Red Court) does some unique follow ups. I cannot say less of the staff, it is as if... More

We stayed overnight on arrival at Nairobi and on departure. We were made to feel welcome and the staff remembered us. The rooms were clean and had a bath..a luxury after travelling. The breakfast was very good with much choice, the dinner likewise and I even received a cake on my birthday !! There are small gardens where you can... More

I had the opportunity to stay shortly at the Boma Inn due to a once more delayed flight of Kenya airways. I was at first a bit skeptical since on my previous canceled flight the hotel quality wasn't great. The service from the very staff was discreet and efficient while being cordial.The room sleep quality is worth recommending (comfy bed,... More

I use this hotel quit often every time I travel to Nairobi. I have enjoyed the friendly staff to the extend of being known by name.. One outstanding thing that I appraise this hotel for is the care and attention I was given when I fell sick during my stay there, I was really treated and considered as a sick... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night, on our way north, and again for a night, 2 nights later, before leaving Nairobi. The rooms are neat, but small. The shower leaked past the shower curtain (why in this era do you still use shower curtains?), with the whole bathroom flooded. The toilet seat was broken off. During the second... More

We have been coming back again and again to the Red Court -now called the Boma Inn. There are 2 main reasons: the proximity to the airport and the staff. Service at this hotel is second to none. Angelina, the guests relations manager, is just outstanding. She would give you a call before your arrival, arrange for everything to be... More

We stayed in this hotel for a stop over before heading north. The room was small, and at the back of the hotel- the area was fairly quiet and we had a relatively good nights sleep. The bathroom again was small, but clean. We did not have a mosquito net, but we did have spray which we used. We used... More

For USD 215 per night one should expect a better room. The shower was leaking at the top and the water splashed all over the bathroom. Besides, the hot water was very poor because the heating system did not work properly. It is rather close to the airport, but even then it takes some times to reach the hotel if... More

Wonderful place to stay while on business in Nairobi, Kenya. Excellent service and food. They have very faithful staff. I will always remember the man who brought me the cash I had forgotten in my trousers which were taken for cleaning. Thank you, it was a great surprise but meant a lot since it is hard to find such staff... More

It depends on the purpose of your trip. For a professionnal one, it is excellent. Room with net anti mosquitos and insecticide, shower and bath. The service is efficient and friendly, they visit you at 5pm to put the red in place over the bed, etc.. There is a small park within the bar and restaurant. They have very good... More
