I had the great pleasure of finally visiting Kenya and also to have had this hotel as my first experience. I will admit that I felt like a king when I was received at the entrance; everyone was smiling and greeting, it felt unrealistic, but it certainly was plain kindness. The restaurant had delicious dishes for all meals, especially the... More

The Boma Hotel looks beautiful and has a very good reputation in town. I can't comment on the hotel itself, because I only stopped by for an early breakfast ahead of a workshop on this campus. But the restaurant was excellent. What outstanding service from the hostess, Agnes! She made me feel exceptionally welcome, offered dining multiple options (from a... More

We stayed here for one night before commencing our safari. It is convenient to the airport, but we arrived too late for dinner. The rooms are very modern ,but somewhat over furnished - too many tables. Breakfast was average, with the one-person egg station cooking for in-room orders as well as the restaurant - long wait. Wifi was excellent

A lovely modern hotel, opened in 2013 and I believe owned by the Red Cross. Very comfortable. Food in restaurant and snack bar excellent with plenty of it. Only about 15-20 minutes from both Nairobi International Airport and Wilson Airport, although it could take much longer at rush hours. Ask the hotel for advice. Would certainly stay here again.

We came here for a meal and to kill time between an internal and an international flight back to London leaving at 23.50. Good food, and well presented by Linet our waitress.I had a burger and chips cooked to perfection and my wife had a gourmet pizza - both of which we would have again. Only downside was the white...

We chose Boma purely based out of tripadvisor ratings and internet research, and we were not disappointed. The check-in took time, but it was worth it. We were upgraded to a suite, and it was a spacious VERY spacious set of rooms most spectacular. The in-room service, swimming pool and restaurants are as you would expect from a standard five...

This was an outstanding hotel. It is outside of the central downtown and takes anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour ( downtown Nairobi traffic is horrible) to get to the business section of the city. We arrived at 2:30 AM and were efficiently brought to our rooms. Spacious and comfortable. We had a choice of queen or two double... More

You could not ask for better service. The staff was exceptionally attentive and caring. The room was large and very comfortable. A large selection at breakfast and they would even deliver coffee or tea to your room at 5am.
