Quite new hotel - opened in January 2013. Facilities still very good. The staff really care and regularly check if guests have any concerns. Good security arrangements with robust gate barriers and door checks. Maintenance is generally good but I noticed that a few things like room weighing scale and table clock run out their batteries. Overall very good experience... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night in Nairobi between flights. It was a lovely hotel with good food, lovely accommodations and friendly staff. Convenient to airport so the drive was relatively fast given the heavy Nairobi traffic! We felt safe with hotel transportation on arrival and departure arranged by our travel agent, Troy Smith of True Africa!

This is a fairly new hotel where we stayed for 1 night prior to our 4 day safari. The staff, especially Angelina, were all helpful and seemed genuinely concerned about our comfort during the stay. The rooms were spacious, fully equipped with amenities, well lighted and very comfortable. Food at the restaurant quite good and the service from the crew... More

This was our first time staying at this superb hotel. Security was excellent, staff very courteous and helpful. Rooms very nicely appointed. The hotel has only been open for about a year and a half, but everything seems to be humming along nicely. The main restaurant (breakfast) had a nicel selection of items, and what we had was delicious. We... More

We stayed at the Boma after landing in Nairobi, and it was the perfect place for us to rest and get ready for the rest of our trip. The staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was comfortable and the buffet was excellent. My two sons were very entertained by the pool and the robotic lawn mower. There is... More

We stayed at two different fabulous hotels in Nairobi. The Boma is beautiful, modern, excellent service, good buffet, close to the airport. I had the sense that the hotel is a bit remote and that there was nothing walking distance. So if you're just going in and out of the airport, this is a great place to stay. If you... More

I still remember this visit like it was yesterday. It was a very clean hotel, not sure because it is still new but I loved the service as well. It has a great gym and the breakfast buffet is great.[though if you stay there for a long time it gets boring] I can still remember the lamb chops that I... More

The hotel is ideally situated between Nairobi International Airport and the domestic Wilson Airport. You don't have far to go along the incredibly congested Mombasa Road that leads into the city, before you turn off onto a side road. The hotel is new and very elegant. Rooms are very well appointed, comfortable and quiet. Free Wi-Fi in rooms. Friendly staff,... More
