“Easy access to the airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

15 mins away from the airport. Avoid the traffic jam in Nairobi.
comfortable room but a bit cold at night in the hotel.
Services is average. Friendly but not efficient.
Good stopover for a night but not for long stay.

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 access).

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) some things could use improvement e.g. having vanity kits in the room, having market accepted branded water- that would be in the 5* class. Also my room did not have all the channels showing. Breakfast was great- loved the choice and variety. Front desk staff were generally helpful.

I think its a great place, but not yet at 5 star ranking.

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.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family
