This hotel is run by the same management as the Red Court Hotel (now Boma Inn), so it is not surprising that the staff, facilities, restaurants and overall experience was excellent. It is adjacent to Boma Inn and 15 minutes away from Nairobi airport. I would go back there any time. Some of the rooms are disabled friendly (wheel chair... More

I like that the hotel is an initiative by Kenya Red Cross. It has fantastic interior deco, which brightens up the place and makes it look quite up market. Apart from the deco, I would rank the rooms as ok. Comfortable beds and large bathrooms. However, for a five star (hotel staff told me the hotel is a five star)... More

I really liked the friendly staff and porters. The rooms are spacious with a large bed, good air conditioning and a mini office. The hotels location is convenient especially to guests using the airport. The meals are awesome. I would visit the Boma anytime.

I was there for 1 week for a training in Nairobi. The room was very comfortable, the service and people there was superb. There is a gym, Spa and even swimming pool. But unfortunately there was not enough time for me to go there. I would recommend the BOMA.

The staff were friendly, rooms were quiet and beds comfortable. They had interconnected rooms making it easy for our kids to be in the next room while staying in touch. Good working space in the room and great ambience. Breakfast was awesome....would visit again any day.

I started the trip at the Kempinski. Felt like Munich - great, if that is what you want. On the way out, I spent two nights at the Boma, fairly close to the airport. About 1 year old, beautifully designed. "Boma" is a collection of houses, and that is the design motif. The colors for carpeting, walls, etc. aren't cool... More

I was pleasantly surprised by The Boma. Booked last minute and was rewarded with a nice big room, breakfast included in my room rate the next day and a very good gym that is one of best stocked hotel gyms I've seen anywhere. The hotel is a bit of a way out of the centre but very handy for JKIA... More

This made my trip excellent....the GM Mr.Ali Kibwana is just the right man for this hotel. Initially i didn't expect this kind of a set up in eldoret, honestly it's worth the price. Keep up the good work and hopefully the little R&M is coming to an end soon. I love the sunday barbeque and live band by the poolside!... More
