The Boma is a lovely place. The ambiance is great and the food and drinks are great too. It has easy access to the airport making it ideal for a quick stopover when in Nairobi. It is also good for business meetings. The staff are courteous and are always willing to help

Spent two nights here, it offers a genuine 5-star experience. As a Kenyan in the US, i have stayed in very nice US hotels and i would say that the Boma measures up to world class standards. The cleanliness, the room service, the staff etc are all world class. The buffet was very good, it offers both local and international... More

Hi bushmaniac, Thank you for your review. We appreciate you feedback and truly happy that the Boma team took great care of you. We have noted the minor glitch on the air-conditioning side and will engage the technical team to see if temperatures can dip below 18 degrees. Thank you Aggrey More

We have just spent a two night stopover here and this place is awesome!. The rooms are gorgeous as is the entire hotel. Staff are helpful and friendly. It is close to the two airports so you can avoid the hectic traffic Nairobi is known for! I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at this lovely hotel for only one night before leaving for our safari. Great pool area. Ate at Tembo (a La carte) rather than buffet at other hotel restaurant. Room very comfortable conducive to a great night sleep. Staff was friendly and professional.

I traveled with my husband to rest a bit and rest is what we had. The pick up from the airport was efficient. The room was a home away from home and the food top notch. The customer service was very efficient. We will definitely go back there when I'm Nairobi.

We stayed at the Boma before and after a safari to Masai Mara. Everyone was great. The airlines had lost my luggage and the front desk staff went out of their way to help track it down and take care of it while we were on safari. Our rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast was very good and... More
