I have stayed in this hotel many times over the years, the first time being over ten years ago, and it has changed very little in that time. The Boulevard ticks all the boxes for me: Clean, friendly staff, good facilities and a convenient location.
The rooms are simple, but they are clean and you do get complimentary shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom.
I love the buffet breakfast. It is really substantial and will set you up for the day. They do put out some odd African specialities though!
The swimming pool is a real bonus, when filled, but being next to a busy road it is not as tranquil as I would like. The gardens at the rear of the hotel are more relaxed, though a haven for mosquitos.
I find the location very convenient for walking to downtown Nairobi. Within 10 mins I can be shopping in a supermarket or surfing the web in an internet cafe (much cheaper and faster than the hotel). Also, the newly renovated National Museum is right behind the hotel.
The main drawback is that they can get very busy and quite often taken over by overland truck clients.
