They have a warm reception which tempts you to stay longer than you planned. Delicious food and very clean rooms. The hotel is also conveniently placed near Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and the city center.

The Boma hotel has great large rooms, all what you need is present, from a place to work, good beds, to a nice spacey bath room. The hotel is easy reachable from the airport and a good hub to the city. You can pamper yourself in luxury here.

This is a comparison review. Stayed at the Hemming Way and the Boma. The Hemming Way is in a class by itself in Nairobi. True five star. The Boma...best description is a airport hotel. A worn out one at that. Examples: 1. Security is a joke. A entry gate to the property and then a airport screening to get into... More

We stayed one night at the Boma Hotel prior to starting our safari. And it was a perfect start! The rooms were spacious and very clean. Helpful staff. Nice shop with good quality/price items. Good restaurant. It was a very good choice and we highly recommend it!

My plane had to make an emergency landing in Nairobi and I ended up, unplanned at 5 AM in this hotel. I was tired and the hotel made a dull first impression on me. After a good rest I started to discover the hotel by daylight and I had to quickly revise my first impressions. The rooms were very generous... More

Boma is the perfect place to spend the night. It has such a scenic view while dining and you cant even tell you're in the ever busy Nairobi city. The rooms are exquisite with such an awesome bath tub. I loved everything about this place. Highly recommended place. Plus all profits go to Red Cross to fund humanitarian emergencies.

Nice modern hotel good for accommodation while in transit in Nairobi, especially a if arriving Kenyatta and departing Wilson (or vice-versa), as it is in between the two airports. Comfortable rooms and good facilities. Including restaurants and swimming pool and a huge gym.

Conveniently located for the airport. Ugly building and uninspiring inside. Rooms comfortable but at all costs avoid the room directly beneath the executive lounge. It is given over to rowdy groups of flight crew on layover who will keep you awake playing loud music and generally messing around. Staff are generally very nice, and try quite hard although there are... More
