All the personell at the BOMA are very friendly and efficient, especially Angelina Nkako who helped with every request in a very friendly and efficient manner. She went out of her way to ensure my stay was a second home from home.

The rooms are of a good standard with fairly new fixtures and fittings. However the food served at the bar is poor. This is offset by the restaurant but this shuts early. As it supports the Red Cross it is worth the minor inconveniences to support a good cause. Hotel transfers are available.

This hotel is convenient to the airport and transfers can be arranged if needed. The staff cannot be beat! Everyone from the front desk, the concierge, waitresses/waiters, to the cleaning staff were all so welcoming, friendly and helpful when needed...true ambassadors for their lovely country. The rooms were large and clean, the showers had great water pressure and plenty of... More

very comfortable, good service and a great location between the international and local airports. A little tired and the bathrooms on the small side with limited towels (2), but weigh that up against the fact the hotel is associated with the red cross with funds flowing over to the non-profit organization and I would definitely book here again for short...

It's a very nice hotel by Nairobi standards. However really not a very good value. It's in the middle of nowhere, so if you want to do anything you need to get a car service that takes you into the City and then a car service that takes you back. Nice hotel just not worth the money.

Nice hotel. Stayed there after a long trip from the US. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a place fairly close to the airport. The food was good and service excellent. Will definitely go back if I return to Nairobi.

Comfortable spacious room, lovely breakfast restaurant with a terrace over looking a little garden. The pool was acceptable. The sports bar was just enough to watch the Euro games. Relatively close to the airport and very safe. The restaurants looked nice but the food is far from being the best in Nairobi so not recommended.

The hotel had cool plans travel , cool services, and the people were hospitable. The food was good and served on time, and in varieties. Liked the free coffee and free wifi connections. The translators were fantastic. Security was superb.

We stay here on the first night of our honeymoon. Even though we were staying less than 24 hours, they still made the effort to put petals on the bed and write us a letter congratulating us. The room was clean and comfortable and the bar stayed open for us. They also opened the breakfast early 5:30am for us to... More
