it's a pleasure to stroll through the elegant halls and walk across the shiny clean floors of the Boma Inn. Staff was professional and kind. The location is great. The neighborhood is safe. The garden is charming.

No fancy fittings etc. Breakfast was good and for dinner we visited Carnivore which is a must, but don't use the hotel taxi, book an Uber! Much cheaper. It is attached to...

My stay at the Boma Inn was faultless. It is officially a 3-star Hotel; which surprised me because the facilities and level of service is first class. The room was out fitted with all the amenities that one needs, and the service was most efficient. One of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in, in East Africa. Its proximity to...

Boma and Boma Inn are next to each other and I would recommend to Boma Inn to people who want to save some money and not ready to pay for 5 stars in Boma. Acceptable food, secure area and kind personal will help you to get rest from long trip. But it's just acceptable, not luxury. Wish you a safe...

This is a very good and clean hotel. It is set in a nice environment with good security. Its nearness to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport ( 15-20 minutes from the hotel) is a definite advantage and was one of the reasons i booked it. There is a fabulous spread of food at breakfast which is served from 06:00 hours....
