Although a bit pricey, we were pleasantly satisfied with the service of The Boma. Upon our arrival in Nairobi, we proceeded to The Boma to leave our luggage for storage while we go on a safari. After a long haul, much to our delight, they not only allowed storage, they also allowed us to take a shower at their health spa, provided toiletries and fresh towels, even if we won't be checking in that day.
The rooms are spacious, the beds are of good quality. There was a fairly good spread of buffet breakfast. They also provided complimentary cake and sang for a birthday celebrant as well.
The hotel is located outside Nairobi City, some twenty minute drive to/from the airport, which was perfect place to stay while just in transit. Nairobi City's traffic can be really bad especially on a work weekday so it was wise to stay here.
The only drawback was the mosquitoes around the hotel.
