I stayed at The Boma Nairobi Hotel for 6 days during a business trip. The welcome and check-in processes were very smooth. The staffs here are very cooperative. 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!

This hotel really surprised me with the excellent service they provide. I booked 3 nights before Christmas and had to go back for 3 more nights on new year's eve. 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

Very friendly from the outset, surprised at how large our room was, very big with desk and sitting area. Beautifully clean. Tempo bar was being refurbished but the restaurant was great, lovely breakfast and super curries on the evening. A good all round menu catering for all tastes. Would definitely stay again, no hesitation.

I stayed here for one night before leaving on a safari. I was initially booked at the Boma Inn but got upgraded to the hotel. The hotel is located 20 mins from the airport (without traffic). Excellent hotel and service. They have an amazing variety for their breakfast buffet Overall great stay and service
