We stayed over in The Boma en route to Mombasa and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was extremely well appointed and the decor in the entire hotel was excellent.Breakfast was first class and all the staff were efficient but very friendly. The icing on the cake is that the hotel is completely secure behind well guarded gates - something... More

The Boma Hotel has a great location and it is very close to the National Park. I can recommend the guided tour, which we booked through the hotel. The rooms are clean and very well equipped. The service and the food is excellent. We had a fantastic stay at the Boma Hotel.

Good location as it is between the airport and main city business areas. The buffet breakfast was included as part of package. The choices of items in buffet breakfast was wide. The... More

We just stayed for one night on the way through to go on safari, but this hotel was an excellent choice close to the airport. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious, and had a great shower! We ate at the restaurant, which was quite good as well. We also had a bit of a layover in Nairobi on the... More

Arrived late at night and left early the next morning but my stay at The Boma was very good indeed. Only about 15 minutes from the airport, this hotel is ideal for a short stopover and probably longer given its modern design and comfortable rooms. Only had time for a quick breakfast but what was on offer was of high... More

I have previously stayed at The Boma Nairobi and also visited their restaurant. I must say it's an excellent and great hotel with friendly staff. To the KRCS Management and staff, you are doing a great job. Keep it up!

The staff are all amazing providing fantastic service with a smile. Something in particular caught my eye...the way they kind of tuck you into bed with their little complimentary slip... More

This is the best place I have traveled to in Africa. When you come in a staff member brings you a hot towel to clean your hands. The staff is efficient and tries their best to assist in whatever you might need. My friend felt sick and they came to our room at 2am to see what he has. In... More
