Rate is certainly not worth 480USD/night, but instead slightly more than half. We however had a special rate - 240USD - as we were in stanby (from noon to 9PM), which nevertheless remains high. Design rooms but lots of small things that do not match a 5 star (TV screen much too small for the distance to the bed, bling... More

The Boma hotel located near the airport in Nairobi is one of the best hotels I have every stayed at. The staff are excellent, very caring and even with the scale of business they do, they remember you by name if you are a regular. The food is great. I have heard the gym and pool are great though I... More

We arrived a day late (missed connection in London) at midnight and they had kept our room for us. They were gracious, helpful and understanding. The room was lovely and breakfast the next morning was delicious and truly appreciated. We had been traveling for days and this was the beginning of a safari adventure and cruise.

First time stay at the Boma, which I knew from previous visits as a nice lunch spot. Friendly welcoming staff, excellent breakfast buffet, great gym and pool. Wifi was working fine, which is always so important when travelling for business. Spacious rooms -except for the bathrooms where there is hardly any space at all around the basin to put something...

We used the Boma as a day hotel, returning in the afternoon from safari in Tanzania and leaving late in the evening for the airport. For us, it was perfect. Close to the airport, a comfortable and spacious room to clean up in, and a casual restaurant for a quick, but quite good meal before leaving that evening. The staff... More

The Boma hotel is very comfortable. It has lots of open spaces to sit, inside and out, and the inside places are open and bright. The service was excellent. I had an issue with the wifi and they followed up to make sure everything was resolved. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. Definitely recommend it!

After a long flight from England it was very nice to arrive at the Boma, which is close to the airport, for an overnight stay before continuing our journey through Kenya.
