The Boma is very nice hotel to stay in Nairobi. The hotel staff was really helpful, the food was good. The rooms were big size and good to stay. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would prefer to stay again in my nex trip.

I've been very happy with my stay at the Boma. Nice rooms and facilities, great food, friendly staff. Location is a bit challenging, but Nairobi has such terrible traffic problems, the location may not be so bad. Conference facilities are nice, public spaces are nice and clean, gardens are nice for receptions. I'd stay here again!

Good environment, friendly staff and good services. I will like the Hotel management to look into converting the huge waste water into other use and the huge food remnant waste into manure for farming. These will benefit the community & the government as part of your corporate Service responsibilities. I will like to support if I am contacted on this.

Have been to Africa many times and this has got to be right up there as one of the best hotel's in the country. Futuristic, modern with spacious rooms and public spaces. Extra proactive and friendly staff. Rooms with full amenities and luxurious bathrooms. A best bet for Nairobi.

Lovely hotel, surroundings, beautiful room and comfy bed. Excellent staff and service, friendly, helpful and efficient. Very reasonable price for a 5* hotel of such quality and service but of course you can't expect a 5* hotel to be cheap. Strongly recommend it.

Every aspect of The Boma hotel is of very high standard. We stay at the hotel for a month at a time and I have yet to have a bad experience. The rooms are always clean, the staff go out of their way for their guests and the food is superb. Great place to stay!

Returned again to stay at The Boma and to use the conference facilities. My sixth visit which give a clear message about the location,the facilities and the fantastic staff. To top it all the complex is owned by The Kenya Red Cross so you are also giving to an NGO if you stay or use the location... Well done to... More
