The hotel is near the airport and in the outskirts. The rooms are big and from a high floor one can has a good 180 degree city view from a distance. The gym is big and lots of equipment. The water is probably hard as it takes a lot of time to remove soap. Also while having a bath experienced... More

Stayed at the Boma hotel last week for six nights. Excellent experience. Staff were great and helpful; our first day there, we had a hotel driver take us around the city for 6 hours to help get us oriented to being there. It was a cost effective 'tour' (about $70) that was a great orientation. Breakfast was amazing every single... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Boma. The room was spacious, tastefully furnished, and very clean. The location is in a quiet area in Nairobi and fairly close to the airports (international and domestic). The hotel was quite modern and the employees were helpful. I would recommend staying here, especially given the fact that the hotel supports the Red Cross.

Stayed at this hotel a few times after previously staying elsewhere, but decided to give this a try as another option, and never disappointed! The rooms are very large by any standards; they have a good swimming pool and fitness centre (although the pool can be cold!); both the onsite restaurants are very good, and the dinner buffet at the...

Friend had left behind his suit and returned to UK. Fearing a lengthy ordeal I took the challenge of picking it up. Delighted by prompt and effective service from Pascal and Esther. Had a quick peak at a room as was being nosy - large and impressively appointed.

Great location close to the airport and an absolute luxury hotel at a brilliant price. The staff can't do enough to help and the spa and breakfast is wonderful! Rooms were huge and very, very clean. Nothing bad to say at all!!
