From the security check at the gate,to the doorman,receptionist,porter,waiters and managers,one feels the warm welcome and the extra effort made to make your stay as comfortable as is possible.The General Manager makes it even more special by personally attending to any guests' request.This is certainly one of the best hotels I have stayed in worldwide

I stay at the Boma hotel on a fairly regular basis, the rooms are huge and very comfortable, with a full bathroom. Service and food in the restaurants is good and transfers around the city are effective. The Concierige services is always friendly and very efficient. They have a nice coffee shop in the lobby with some great looking cakes... More

Ended up here after a flight cancellation, decent hotel an restaurant, however not quite up to required standard. Very hard beds, small bathrooms and non existent shower ( but sit down bathtub), choose a bother alternative if available, but ok if your flight is cancelled.

Stayed for four nights when on a producer journey with Fairtrade Sweden in May 2015. We where told the Kenyan branch of The Red Cross owned 40 percent of the shares which felt good as the hotel is so luxurious and the purpose with our visit was to meet a lot of rather poor workers at flower farms and coffee...

We stayed here as a stopover on our way back from a trip to Madagascar. The hotel was spotless, the bar was very nice and the room was delightful. Would really recommend this for a night of luxury, it was handy for the airport and not too far from Nairobi. We met a nice taxi driver at the airport, he... More

Everything was attractive starting from the reception to the hotel room. The rooms are well fitted with the current state of the art facilities the television is a sleek touchscreen. Their employees do their work with passion and utmost respect. Security is well taken care of. This place is actually on top of all.

I have stayed at different hotels in various countries, and The Boma Nairobi has been one of the best. The accommodations are to par in comparison to other similar hotels in terms of cleanliness and comfort level. Do not take this wrong. This does not mean that the rooms were not clean, ample, comfortable and nice, since they were very... More

The rooms are spacious and well equipped (no ironing), complimentary slippers and bath robe. Good beds, great pillows of different thickness and consistency. Good black-out curtains. The view is not that spectacular and the only sight seeing close by is Nairobi National Park, where you can do safari (no elephants). Hotel staff is wonderful and really helpful. I liked the...

We stayed the night at The Boma and were very pleased with the cleanliness, spacious, and modern touches of the hotel. The hotel is very beautiful, the rooms are very modern, as well as the hotel gym, and the staff paid very detailed attention to our needs, especially Sharyn, who went out of her way to greet us and make...
