“Was pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

One of my colleagues suggested that I stay at this hotel as we had conducted a training there last year and the experience was good. I was pleasantly surprised - the hotel is very good. Good service, polite and helpful staff, very neat and clean, good spread of breakfast. The restaurant is decent. I really like the garden cafe - it is very relaxing to sit outside and have your coffee or beer. BTW, the coffee is very good, and I am not even a regular coffee drinker...... There is a lounge as well. I even had a swedish massage which was good. All in all, it was an excellent experience. If you are looking for a hotel close to the airport (which is cheap by Nairobi standards), this is the place to stay.

It is now called Boma Inn.

The Red court hotel offers everything the business traveller can expect. Conveniently located near the airport. The rooms are clean, rather small but well equipped. The bed is great. The bathroom is clean, and very functional. breakfast is great, with a buffet with a lot of options. service is very professional as well as kind.

Red Court is one of the best hotels close to the airport - say 15 minutes drive on a non busy day.

It is a business hotel with all amenites that you require to addup with your busiess trips, or may be a small transit trip.

The staff are courteous, and helpful.

Rooms are clean, neat with good quality linen.

Speedy wifi in all rooms.

Good spread for breakfast. The chef came to my table and spoke to me for some time.

I prefer this hotel as it is away from the traffic congestion of Nairobi.

I stayed here overnight courtesy of Kenya Airways, after I had missed a connection in Nairobi. At the rate they paid (which seemed to be $75-$100) it is a very good value. At the rack rate they quoted me in reply to my question, $240 – so high that I wonder if the desk clerk was confusing it with their up-market sister property next door, the Boma Inn – it would absolutely not be worth the money.

The facility is similar to Country Lodge in Upper Hill – clean, basic rooms, with no air conditioning (which would only be bothersome in the hot seasons since Nairobi is so high). It does have a full restaurant, with adequate food. Its main advantage is that it’s relatively close to the airport – important because of Nairobi’s frequent traffic gridlock. Apparently proceeds from the business support the Kenya Red Cross.

I stayed in this hotel 2 nights after experiencing some very bad places in the city center. It was a relief and a very pleasant place to stay. The staff is polite and helpful, very well trained. The hotel is very nice and comfortable with a good restaurant and a lovely small garden with shaded tables where to relax. It is also close to the airport, some 10-15 minutes drive, far away from the ugly traffic jams of downtown Nairobi. I do recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South side have a view of the internal court and garden, very nice but sometimes there...

It has been a pleasant stay at the Red Court Hotel. I stayed there for a week for a busines trip. It is near the airport. The room is comfortable. I had a huge king size bed to myself. The breakfast buffet is pretty good. The staffs are very friendly, always have a smile on their faces. I would recommend this place for business trip.
