This hotel is perfect for an overnight stay. We checked in, room was clean and service good. Breakfast had plenty to choose from. Outside or inside bar and very friendly staff. Second stay. Would recommend.

Stayed 14-19 Aug. "Sister hotel" of the Boma in Nairobi - but at a budget price. Liked the following: - Soap Dispensers : Small thing but nothing more frustrating for me than landing after a flight and taking a shower just to use the soaps meant for the next morning. Soap dispensers always full with enough shampoo etc. - Location... More

I had an eight hour stopover between flights with my flight arriving in Nairobi at 1h30 am and the next departing at 12 noon. I took the chance and called Boma Inn after looking online on TripAdvisor. Hilda, who was the night duty Manager at the main hotel was really wonderful and arranged the reservation for me at the Inn... More

The staff was friendly, the rooms were on the small side but clean though. The hotel looks like it has never had an upgrade since the day it was built, and the food was average. I found it rather pricey given the circumstances and the hotel conditions.

This is an hotel -medium level - cheaper than the near, luxury, "Boma hotel". Rooms are comfortable but not so new (80's style); restaurant and facilities at the same level of the rooms but bars and gym of the main "Boma" (much better) hotel building can be used for free. Internet connection poor. Good choice to avoid the traffic jam... More

20-30 minutes from airport. Clean, comfortable, lovely room. Great restaurant (limited menu; give 20 minutes for order to arrive). Stable and strong wifi connection. Express laundry service. Small, functional gym, sauna, steam room, and massage room. (Boma Inn is adjacent to pricier Boma; as they are sister hotels, you can walk over and use the Boma's state-of-the-art gym facilities and... More

We checked into the Boma Inn after vacating another Hotel in Nairobi South C where the LIFT was constantly out of order.

Great reception by the staff the cab sent to pick me up was on time. The room is simple but sufficient, very homely and clean, the water runs great with plenty towels. Dinner is well airated and spacious though the food ordered takes 20min so prepare for the short wait. the menu is pretty limited in options.

Separate bar at garden area, varieties of restaurants, business center and caring people. Nearer to airport area budget hotel to enjoy stay. Buffet lunch with varieties of preparations for people like me to enjoy veg food. Good ambiance around
