We had to stay over night in Nairobi due to the planning of the great migration holiday. The stay in the Boma gives a pleasant taste of Kenya and welcomes smoothly to embrace the Kenyan culture and life, and eases one into the wonderful week ahead.

Very well located hotel especially if you want to avoid the Nairobi traffic jam as you head out to the airport. Although my stay at the Boma hotel was very short, one thing I noticed immediately was how accommodating the staff were. Raymond the concierge person, especially went out of his way to help me with weighing my numerous luggage... More

Me, my wife and 2 pre teen children stayed here for 2 nights. They had rooms with adjoining doors (one room had a king bed and one had 2 double beds). The rooms were very clean and well decorated. The property is very secure. Gated with lots of security guards. All vehicles were inspected prior to entering the property. the... More

I stayed here twice. Once in May 2015 and again in July 2015. One of the things that impressed me was the customer service. I have never felt as cared for as in this hotel. From the hotel staff and the drivers..the entire experience there was like it was designed to make me feel cared for. The rooms were beautiful... More

The Boma is in a good location between both airports in Nairobi. If you want to be in the city it is a bit away but if you are looking for a beautiful and safe facility as you pass through this is definitely the place. The rooms were spacious (even by western standards) and very clean. We were offered a... More

The Boma in Nairobi is an excellent place to stay. I have stayed multiple times and have always been impressed with the service and the rooms. Very friendly and welcoming. The restaurants are top notch and consistently serve quality food.

I ended up at this hotel more by accident rather than by choice. My flight on Kenya Airways was cancelled at short notice and the rebooked me for the following days flight. The Boma is not a name that I had come across before so I was a little apprehensive but as soon as we arrived at the hotel it... More
