The Boma is spotlessly clean, has friendly,very helpful staff, and a great pool and gift shop. The rooms are large with tubs and showers. The large breakfast buffet sounds wonderful but I had to leave too early to try it. Great place to lay over between flights.

A very nice hotel in nairobi. Its very clean and neat. The ambience is good. Price is a bit on higher side. Helpful hotel staff. Restaurant menu does not provide much variety. The room interiors are very nice.

The Boma is an excellent choice for an active stay in Nairobi. It has close proximity to the airport, city center and Langata road, the highway to most places of interest. The staff at The Boma is friendly and helpful the rooms are well appointed. Only criticism is the mattresses are too hard!

Situated about 10-20 min from the international airport (depending on the traffic) but still much closer than most of the big 4-5* hotels down-town, this rather new place (opened in 2011) provides all the comfort travelers need and appreciate. Great spirit of hospitality, spacious rooms with a/c, spa, fitness and outdoor pool, restaurant, bar, coffee lounge, ... The staff is... More

The hotel has beautiful rooms along with excellent gym facilities and good restaurants. The Tempo Bistro is particularly nice at night. The only downside is mediocre wifi. I will be glad to come back in the future.
