Great hotel. The best aspect is the value. You get a 4-star hotel for a very good price. The restaurants and bar are decent and the wifi is very stable. My only complaint is that the bed is a bit stiff. I will be staying here again on future business.

Such a great stop off following two-weeks of safari. I felt so clean again! Clean, well-appointed hotel with excellent service. I used the gym and pool, both are accessible to Nairobi gym members. It was nice to feel like part of the city.

Simply awesome! It is an awesome hotel. Its proximity to the airport and the main city and the national park is worth a mention. It is very very beautiful. If on transit, this is a must be hotel. You will appreciate each and every view. The staff here are very welcoming, their meals are finger licking good. Make sure you... More

We stayed at the Boma for 1 night during Sep 2015. The hotel and service are of average quality and definitely not worth the price we paid when compared to what we paid on our other night in Nairobi where we stayed at the Kempinski, which is by far a better hotel. We tried to order room service before midnight... More

The hotel is excellent in all ways possible. The staff were polite and professional. When I called to make a reservation, the lady who spoke to me, one Catherine Njambi Mugane, was exceptionally good! She was polite, welcoming and highly professional. Hood PR! Unfortunaly I didnt get to meet her. The Boma is a place to stay while in Nairobi.

Huge rooms with all the necessities, helpful staff and front desk, good little bar and excellent room service, great stay and close to both airports. Pool too, though I never tested it due to lack of a swimsuit!

Returned to The Boma Hotel for another visit and to use the conference facilities for an event I was running. For me a key attraction for using The Boma / Boma Inn and conference rooms is that as I am running humanitarian events and The Boma is owned by the Kenya Red Cross is has to be the right place...

The hotel is really nice and the facilities excellent. However, it is the staff that really make it extra-special. They are warm friendly and so helpful. To add to all this it is close to the Nairobi National Park. It was an excellent week's meeting made enjoyable by the hotel and staff. Warmly recommended.

The staff made me feel right at home. The room was well appointed and comfortable. One thing about the bathrooms, the shower floors were very slippery. The restaurant was very good with a good selection of food and excellent service.
