I arrived at the Boma to be pleasantly surprised by the structure and lay out. The staff were friendly and the security check was not intimidating. I got my room upgraded with no problems at all, and boy was it worth. I must admit, I now have an additional bias to the hotel as on of the few that have smoking rooms. Fantastic stay.
Only down side was with the airport transfers the company charges $20 per person, even if you are sharing. That to me was just outrageous and I refused to sign the voucher. After all, if I knew, I would no have shared! So stand warned if you sign up for the airport transfers. Also, stand warned that refusing to sign the voucher does not mean they will not circumvent the control (of signing all bills) and still include it on your tab.
Overall I enjoyed the stay. South C is a nice place, but the traffic getting in, especially if you land around 5pm can be horrendous.
