This hotel might be owned by the Kenya Red Cross, but I have to give it a black cross after my recent visit. I usually stay downtown but wanted a hotel closer to the airport as I was arriving from the UK in the evening and leaving for Addis very early the next morning. The pick up from the airport...

My room was comfortable, had a window that could open, and therefore, I had no use for AC. Room was always very well cleaned, amenities always replaced. Tea/coffee was available in the room. In case one required any mini bar items, you had to call reception to stock the fridge. Comfortable bed. Good size TV. Comfortable reading chairs and desk....

The rooms were always spotless and ready when we arrived, the hotel was quiet, and the food service was top notch. The only minor issue I experienced was the...

With all of Nairobi's traffic, the location of your hotel is extremely important. Boma is, by far, the best hotel to stay at if you are only coming to Nairobi for a short stop over before heading on safari. It meets the expectations of a 4/5 star counterpart in Europe or the U.S. Great service, continental cuisine, fine dining restaurant,...

This is my 5th visit to The Boma and the complex, the home of the Kenya Red Cross. SO should you stay at The Boma or the Boma Inn on site you will be giving to an NGO! I come to The Boma to run humanitarian events and as always the staff in the hotel and the conference centre provide...

On a recent safari tour in Kenya and Tanzania, we stayed at the Boma several nights at the beginning of our tour and midway and at the end of our tour, we had a day room for a few hours before our transfer to the airport. All of those times, we were happy with the hotel, the food was good...
