Our group stayed here twice..one night before and one after … our safari. The facility is top notch from the staff who pick you up at the airport to the desk staff to the bellmen. We had several members who were suffering stomach issues. Not only did they call a medical staff to come and tend to our needs, but... More

Have stayed overnight at the Boma, Nairobi on my last three visits to Kenya as it is now impossible to catch the last flight to Mombasa if arriving on BA due to the late arrival of the flight from Heathrow. As far as I am concerned this is money that I resent spending so the Boma was up against it... More

Very good hotel on the outskirts of Nairobi. Security prominent. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Staff are most helpful. The hotel is owned by the Red Cross and all profits are directly paid to them (after payment to staff and running costs).

Our check in at Boma was delayed by 1 hour. - not sure where the problem was but we'd booked and paid for an executive suite and this took a long time to sort out. Eventually we got the suite we'd paid for and it was very comfortable and well appointed. The executive lounge, which was included in the price,... More

A beautiful structure, located near the airport, but not particularly user friendly. Poor directions and zero signage to second floor gym and sauna facilities - which were hidden down a series of side staircases and long corridors. Tho clean and modern and impressive, it lacked the welcoming warmth of human hospitality that I enjoyed elsewhere in Kenya, perhaps the price... More

British Airway put me up here when our flight was cancelled. The hotel efficiently handled around 60 of us at midnight. Bravo. The rooms are large with a couple of Queen Anne chairs and desk with an ergonomic chair. WiFi is included. The restaurant has above average food. Buffet for breakfast and lunch. The staff was very helpful.

We were booked at the Boma Inn, formerly the Redcourt Hotel, which I guess is the sister of Boma seeing as they are located on the same compound. It's conveniently located between the airport and the CBD. Day 1 The guy at the reception isn't sure about our reservations so it takes over an hour to have this sorted out.... More

The hotel is a short 20-25 minute drive to the international airport making it convenient getting in and out for travel. The hotel surroundings are uninspiring but the hotel itself was clean, modern and new. It has a very high quality gym, a spa and nice swimming pool. The staff is generally attentive, accommodating, smiling and willing to please, however... More
