Adorned in red, the Boma helped us celebrate a friend's silver wedding anniversary!! They set up a room for us and decorated it in white and red, allowed us to get there early to prepare and late to dance it out! The food was amazing! I especially loved the pepper sauce (works on anything...chicken, steak) and the staff were very...

Unfortunately the first night we were there, the WiFi on our floor wasn't working but we got by without it. We had a meal there on...

I liked the professionalism. We arrived midnight and were promptly attended. Swiss training everywhere visible. A definite recommendation. Most conveniently placed between downtown and airport. Budget fits the performance.

Very comfortable place in Nairobi. Appointed nicely. Large buffet breakfast. Hospitable bar. Friendly service. The electrical situation was difficult to figure out - you might not want to depend on the electricity working throughout the night (only quibble). Otherwise, very nice stay. Thank you.

The food is nice too with a wide...

The Boma was an interesting experience and loved the architecture it has. The staff was quite friendly to interact with and helpful in my requests. The rooms were great and have no complaint about them as they provided all that I needed for the stay. What interested me was that the monies spent by guests went toward funding the Red...
